Geoff Nuttall says one advantage to being in charge of the Chamber Music program at Spoleto USA is that he gets to program works that he loves. In this case, he gets to play too - the Faure Piano Quartet in G minor - along with violist Hsin-Yun Huang, cellist Alisa Weilerstein, and pianist Stephen Prutsman. And a work for solo violin based on the folk song "The Water is Wide". It's by composer-in-residence Jonathan Berger, and played at the Dock Street Theatre by Livia Sohn.
