Pianist, Dr Edward Neeman, (Juilliard School), will team up with violinist and Phoenix Collective Artistic Director, Dan Russell, for the Collective’s next concert piece, Ye Olde England.
Calm, restful works evoking scenes of lush green pastures and mother England abound as violin and piano sonatas by Delius and Elgar pave the way for one of the most exquisite works in the violin repertoire, The Lark Ascending, by Ralph Vaughan Williams, a work based on English poet, George Meredith’s, famous poem.
Dr Neeman has performed across five continents.
Critics have lauded him as a true artist who isn’t afraid to put a distinctive stamp on whatever he touches.
A top prizewinner of numerous international piano competitions, including first prize in the Joaquín Rodrigo Competition in Madrid, Dr Neeman has appeared as a soloist with the Prague Philharmonic, Sydney Symphony, Melbourne Symphony, Kentucky Symphony, Symphony of Northwest Arkansas, and the American West Symphony among others.
Ye Old England will be performed at the Greenway Chapel at Greenpoint on November 24.
