Chamber Music with Friends: James Ehnes, Andrew Armstrong, and Alice Yoo

November 05,2023

3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Sottile Theatre


James Ehnes, who has established himself as one of the most sought-after violinists on the international stage, makes his highly anticipated debut with Chamber Music Charleston on Sunday, November 5 at 3pm at the College of Charleston Sottile Theatre.

Mr. Ehnes plays on the extraordinary Marsick Stradivarius of 1715, built by the legendary Italian violin-maker during his golden period. At this time, Antonio Stradivarius was at the pinnacle of his powers, using his most lavish materials and achieving an aesthetic and acoustic perfection that became the standard by which all subsequent violin making was to be judged.

During the month of October, 2023, Mr. Ehnes solo career brings him to Amsterdam to perform the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto with the Concertgebouw Orchestra, to Germany to perform the Sibelius Violin Concerto with the Dresden Philharmonie, and finally to Canada to play the Barber Violin Concerto with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. On November 5th he comes to Charleston with his good friend and longtime collaborator, pianist Andrew Armstrong, along with cellist Alice Yoo to perform a program of music including Sarasate’s Carmen Fantasy for Violin and Piano and Arensky’s Piano Trio No. 1 in D minor, Opus 32.

This marks the second performance in the newly launched Chamber Music with Friends concert series at Sottile Theatre, hosted by CMC President and Artistic Director Sandra Nikolajevs and pianist Andrew Armstrong. This innovative series combines colorful and entertaining commentary with music of the most exceptional caliber performed by leading chamber musicians of the day.
