Navitas Ensemble

Béla Bartók Hungarian Folk Melodies for Violin and ‘Cello, arr. Karl KraeuterErwin Schulhoff Duo for Violin and ‘CelloAlfred Schnittke Stille Musik for Violin and ‘CelloErno Dohnányi Serenade for String TrioThe Navitas Ensemble is dedicated to presenting the duo ensemble and repertoire as an integral part of chamber music, with a depth of exploration, integrity and curiosity that allows them to present music-making that is dynamic, intimate, and powerful. Though Addario-Berry and Choi have performed together in ensembles large and small, their decision to form a duo was largely inspired by their shared experience of Ravels great Sonata for Violin and ‘Cello, through which they developed a deep mutual respect and discovered their shared passion and commitment to bringing the highest level of artistry and expression to great works of chamber music. Both musicians bring to the ensemble extensive backgrounds in contemporary music and traditional concert music, drawing connections between these worlds to create programs that are diverse, entertaining, and relevant to audiences of all ages and backgrounds. For this concert they are joined by violist Jodi Levitz of the Ives Quartet. For more information please visit
