Minsky Duo Raises the Barn
Nato, violin; Monica Chew, piano
Violinist Nato and pianist Monica Chew formed Minsky Duo in spring of 2016. Minsky Duo’s mission is to present extraordinary music from both popular and obscure composers. While audiences will hear the chamber music they know and love, Minsky Duo also presents listeners with provoking works they will soon not forget. This all-American program includes the Bay Area premiere of Ned Rorem’s sonata for violin and piano, Aaron Copland’s sonata, Children’s Day at the Camp Meeting by Charles Ives, and Road Movies by Bay Area composer John Adams, and a world premiere of some preludes and fugues for piano by American composer Aaron Andrew Hunt.
