Amherst Arts Academy Faculty & Friends Chamber Music Series Presents a Russian Chamber Music Concert. 

A newly established art school in Amherst is proud to feature its music faculty in a fabulous program of all-time audience favorites: the sweet and passionate Cello Sonata by Sergey Rachmaninov and the stark Piano Trio No. 2 by Dmitri Shostakovich.

The world-class cellist and the director of the Amherst Arts Academy, Ignacy Gaydamovich, will be joined by Turkish pianist Cihan Yücel and American violinist, Gary Capozziello. “For me, Rachmaninov’s sonata is love and the Shostakovich’s Trio is death. Putting those two pieces together in a concert is like opening a curtain on life’s eternal debate between the one and the other”, says Gaydamovich.
