This second recital in the four-part Curtis Presents series will be streamed live on Curtis Performs


PHILADELPHIA—February 23, 2017—Curtis Presents continues its season with a recital by Carter Brey, longtime principal cello of the New York Philharmonic, on Sunday, February 26 at 3 p.m. in Field Concert Hall. With playing that has been praised as “probing, supple, and brilliant” (New York Times), Mr. Brey and pianist Benjamin Pasternack (’76) present a program of works by Schumann, Chopin, 20th-century composers Elliott Carter, Leon Kirchner, and Leonard Bernstein, a Curtis alumnus.

A force in classical music for over 35 years, Carter Brey has appeared as a soloist with numerous major American orchestras. As a chamber musician he has performed and recorded with an elite circle of musical partners. He has been principal cello of the New York Philharmonic for the past 20 years and joined the Curtis faculty in 2008.

Tickets are $25 and are available from the Curtis Patron Services Office at (215) 893-7902 or Curtis.edu/tickets. The concert will also be streamed live on Curtis.edu/CurtisPerforms at 3 p.m. EST.
