MARLBORO—Marlboro College’s Music for a Sunday Afternoon series continues on Nov. 11 with pianist Benjamin Hochman in a program including two world premieres — Gilad Cohen’s Circling Time and Jesse Brault’s Sonata Shambhala.
The concert will take place at 3 p.m. in Marlboro’s Ragle Hall, Serkin Center for the Performing Arts, and is free and open to the public.
Hochman’s eloquent and virtuosic performances have excited audiences and critics alike. He performs in major cities around the world as a respected orchestral soloist, recitalist, and chamber musician, working with a celebrated array of renowned conductors and colleagues.
An impassioned and intelligent exponent of diverse composers, from Bach and Mozart to Kurtág and Lieberson, Hochman strives to express the essence of each composer’s works. The result are interpretations that The Vancouver Sun described as “stylish and lucid, with patrician authority and touches of elegant wit where context allows.”
In addition to the recent works by Cohen and Brault, the program includes Bach’s French Suite No. 5 in G major, Mozart’s Sonata in A minor, K. 310, and Chopin’s Ballade No. 4 in F minor, Op. 52.
An informal discussion with Cohen, Brault, and Hochman will follow the performance.
