Violinist Trond Saeverud and pianist Gregory Biss have performed together since 2006; most often as a duo, but also in combination with visiting summer colleagues from New York and elsewhere. Their concerts have included several premieres and revivals of obscure works that deserve attention – one of them to be presented tonight. The August 12 recital focuses mostly on all time French favorites for violin and piano – including some of the most beloved pieces on the violin repertory.

Enjoy private van transportation from Hammond Hall after the show for a stress-free ride to the Schoodic Ferry, and a beautiful night ride back across the Bay.
