Event Description:
Performance by cellist Robert Jesselson and pianist Charles Fugo. Since their formation in 1981, the Jesselson/Fugo Duo has been delighting audiences in the South with their impeccable ensemble playing and the rich literature for cello and piano. With performances at music festivals (Piccolo Spoleto, Coastal Carolina), universities (Clemson, University of Georgia, Furman, University of North Carolina, Louisiana State University) and through community organizations, the Jesselson/Fugo Duo has played throughout Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Texas, Louisiana, New Jersey, and New York. Included in their repertoire are the major sonatas by Beethoven, Brahms, Chopin, Strauss, Mendelssohn, Grieg, Schubert, Boccherini, Valentini, and Rachmaninoff, and other major works for cello and piano such as the Tchaikovsky Rococo Variations, Chopin Polonaise Brillante, and Bruch Kol Nidre, as well as numerous virtuosic showpieces by Popper, Cassado, Nin, Paganini and others. With special emphasis on the Romantic repertoire, the Duo also performs much music from the Baroque period, as well as contemporary composers such as Stravinsky, Shostakovich, Barber, Carter and Messaien.The program will include Four Preludes from The Well-Tempered Clavier (J.S. Bach) by Ignaz Moscheles, Sonata in D Major, Op. 58 by Felix Mendelssohn, Lilies (2011) by John Fitz Rogers, and At the Marion Opera House (2012) by Tayloe Harding. Listen to excerpts from their recording, Carolina Cellobration.
