Pianist Gilbert Kalish and Emerson String Quartet violinist Philip Setzer will perform on Friday at the Staller Center at Stony Brook University to raise money for the university's music scholarships.
The concert kicks off at 8 p.m. at the center's Recital Hall, and will feature Ravel, "Sonata for Violin and Piano" by Maurice Ravel, "Sonata in C minor for Violin and Piano" by famed Romantic composer Ludwig Van Beethoven, "Largo" by 20th century composer Charles Ives and the world premiere of "Sonata for Violin and Piano" by Lan-in Yang.
Part of the $50 admission price will support the Gilbert Kalish Endowed Scholarship Fund. Both performers are members of the college's faculty.
“Without proper financial support we will not be able to compete with our sister schools such as Yale, Juilliard, Indiana, USC and New England Conservatory that offer huge scholarship incentives to attract these elite students,” Kalish said in a statement.
