Clarinetist Alexander Fiterstein, with "a warm tone and powerful technique" (The New York Times), joins violinist Arnaud Sussmann (“[his] tone was a thing of awe-inspiring beauty” – Pioneer Press), the charismatic and captivating pianist Anna Polonsky, and pianist Orion Weiss (“an effortlessly brilliant performer” -The Arizona Republic). 

Together they present a program of music that shows the passing of an era, from the Romantics of the late nineteenth century through the pivotal years of World War I. This program launches “CENTENARY WEEKEND: The Crossroads of WWI and Music.”
