The Academy of St. Martin in the Fields shares the Center for the Arts (CFA) stage with piano virtuoso Murray Perahia Saturday at 8 p.m. Prior to this program of works by Handel, Mozart, Bach, and Haydn, audience members are invited to an artistic discussion at 7:15 p.m. in the Grand Tier Lobby.
The Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, now the world’s most recorded chamber orchestra, divides its time among concerts in the United Kingdom, work in the recording studio, and international tours. In 1993, the academy became the first orchestra to be honored with a Queen’s Award for Export Achievement in recognition of its extensive touring schedule and esteemed reputation outside Britain. Perahia, one of the most sought-after pianists, serves as guest conductor and soloist for this performance.
Tickets are $55, $47, and $28 and are available through Center for the Arts. For more information, call x38888.
