As well, pianist Michael Berkovsky will be featured in Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini and cellist Andrew Ascenzo in Prokofiev’s Sinfonia Concertante.
In June 2019, the KSO and Markham Contemporary Music Festival will return to Cornell Recital Hall for a series of concerts presenting masterpieces by Schnittke and Schönberg.
