Wister & More: Pyxis Piano Quartet with baritone Grant Youngblood

Sun. Mar. 17, 2019 - 3:00pm - 6:00pm
Pyxis Piano Quartet (Luigi Mazzocchi, violin; Amy Leonard, viola; Jennifer Jie Jin, cello; and Hiroko Yamazaki, piano) was founded in 2009 to perform chamber music concerts which include works from the sonata, duo, and trio repertoire as well as traditional and contemporary masterpieces. Baritone Grant Youngblood’s orchestral appearances have garnered praise for his “smooth lyric baritone voice bringing beautiful shading and color to the score.”
Program will include a Piano Quartet by J.C. Bach, new songs and stories featuring the poetry of Jeffrey Harrison and the music of Chuck Holdeman, and Astor Piazzolla’s Histoire du Tango for Piano Quartet, arranged by Luigi Mazzocchi.
