Bach, Ravel, & Franck

The gala concert also features a performance of Bach's Double Violin Concerto (in D minor), performed by incoming Chamber Music Series Director Geoff Nuttall and his wife, violinist Livia Sohn, and a host of Spoleto Chamber musicians; Ravel's Pavane performed by rising star Hsin-Yun Huang (viola), with Charles Wadsworth himself at the piano.
