Dear friends of the Argenta Concert Series,
It is with great pleasure and excitement that we unveil the Third Season of the Argenta Concert Series at the University of Nevada, Reno. This year we can truly say that we are well on the way to establishing ourselves as one of the premier chamber music offerings in the nation. Our stage will be visited by some of the most distinguished artists in the world, from the most buzz-worthy young guests like clarinetist Romie de Guise-Langlois and bassoonist Peter Kolkay, to legendary performers like Ida and Ani Kavafian or the great Canadian pianist Jon Kimura Parker. By popular demand this season, we will feature our first returning artist - the superb David Shifrin on clarinet, who will be joined by another legend of chamber music, the violist Paul Neubauer.
Also this season UNR’s own Argenta Trio will be returning for two performances, each featuring works by composers from Nevada, and the violinist Stephanie Sant ‘Ambrogio will offer a recital in collaboration with pianist Peter Miyamoto.
We are especially proud to feature as the grand finale of the season a visit by two titans of the classical music world, the cellist David Finckel and pianist Wu Han in a special benefit concert. Mr. Finckel is the recipient of nine Grammy Awards as the cellist of the famed Emerson String Quartet, and jointly with Ms. Wu Han both are the Artistic Directors of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center.
All the artists will not only bring great music to the audience, but will also be working closely with the gifted students of our community. So please join us in our effort to enrich the world with wonderful music.
Fondly, Dmitri Atapine & Hyeyeon Park, Artistic Directors
