The 92nd Street Y, one of New York’s leading cultural venues, presents Seth Parker Woods, cello, (above) and Andrew Rosenblum piano, playing Mendelssohn, Schumann, and more, on Saturday, October 30, 2021 at 8pm ET as part of its fall classical music season, its first fully in-person season since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The concert will also be available via livestream and available for 72 hours from time of broadcast. Tickets for both the in-person and livestream options are $10-$45 and are available here.

One of the most exciting musicians of his generation and a multidisciplinary artist as natural in the worlds of avant-garde and pop music as he is in core classical repertoire, cellist Seth Parker Woods makes his 92Y debut with award-winning pianist Andrew Rosenblum. Their gorgeous program juxtaposes works by core European composers with African American composers including the groundbreaking Pulitzer Prize winner George Walker, and features a melodic, stunningly beautiful Mendelssohn sonata, Walker’s lovely, enigmatic Cello Sonata, and a trio of rhapsodic short works by Schumann.

Expect additional selections by the marvelous turn-of-the-century composer Florence Price and a jazz-inflected work by Coleridge Taylor Perkinson, for a concert as deep and expansive as the artists performing it.

The program includes:

Mendelssohn: Cello Sonata No. 2 in D Major, Op. 58

George Walker: Cello Sonata

Price: Andante, from Piano Sonata in E Minor

Schumann: Fantasy Pieces, Op. 73

Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson: Calvary Ostinato, from Lamentations

Comprising 14 concerts performed in 92Y’s historic Kaufmann Concert Hall, the fall season includes two appearances by world-renowned pianist Richard Goode; an all-Rossini program from tenors Lawrence Brownlee and Michael Spyres; the first performance by The Knights as 92Y’s inaugural Ensemble in Residence; the 92Y debuts of rising star violinist Randall Goosby, intrepid cellist Seth Parker Woods, and the Grammy Award-nominated Aizuri Quartet; guitarist Ana Vidovic; MacArthur “Genius” Award winner and pianist Jeremy Denk, and others, performing a diverse group of repertoire which includes works of Eleanor Alberga, Johann Sebastian Bach, Joseph Boulogne, Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Jessie Montgomery, César Franck, Florence Price, Louis Moreau Gottschalk, and more.
