Geoff Nuttall, "a violin virtuoso and an extraordinary musician" (The New York Times) is joined by "clearly a pianist to watch" (The Los Angeles Times) Orion Weiss, spectacular young violist "gifted with poise and a warmth of timbre" (The Telegraph) Matthew Lipman, and the highly acclaimed young musician Arlen Hlusko who has also performed as principal cellist of several ensembles, including the Curtis Symphony Orchestra and New York String Orchestra.
Featured on this program is Metamorfose by the Brazilian composer, Clarice Assad, commissioned by Matthew in honor of his late mother. Assad chose the metamorphosis of a butterfly as a metaphor for the journey from pain and loss to the freedom that only acceptance can provide.
