The husband and wife duo of Artur Kaganovsky and Eszter Szilveszter, will perform Sunday, July 7 at the United Methodist Church on Route 3 in Saranac.
Along with the official premiere of “Saranac Sketches” written exclusively for the couple by composer Peter Kelsh, the concert will include a repertoire of pieces stemming from Mozart, and other classics, which will be included on their upcoming CD, produced by Hill and Hollow Music. The anticipated release date is early 2014.
“That’s exactly what we are planning to do is to give the audience a feel for what they’re going to actually own and can listen to everyday, or whatever they choose,” said Kaganovsky.
He said the pieces will be anything ranging from Mozart, to modern-day composers like Kelsh.
“It’s a very, very different range of stylistic proportion to violin and viola repertoire, and as far as we know there hasn’t been any major project like this before,” Kaganovsky said.
“We’re very thankful for Hill and Hollow, and Angela Brown for all her work especially. She has done tremendous work, including putting all this project together,” said Eszter Szilveszter.
The couple explains that this is going to be a very special project.
“We’ve been around 4 or 5 years now and that’s how we got to know each other,” Kaganovsky said. “It’s a very special deal and not just playing wise, but it’s a very personal connection between us, this music and the audience, so it brings us all together.”
Both Kaganovsky and Szilveszter believe that once you’re in love with something there’s no turning back.
“Music is one of those things when you fall in love with it, you have to make a bunch of beautiful music and not everybody can do it,” Kaganovsky said.
They decided to produce with Hill and Hollow Music because Angela Brown and her husband support emerging young artists by making projects for them, and not every musician has that opportunity.
