Kaganovskiy Duo Premieres “Saranac Sketches” by Peter Kelsh

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe husband-and-wife Kaganovskiy Duo began their residency with a superb concert, free and open to the public, at the Saranac United Methodist “Church in the Hollow.” Artur and Eszter Kaganovskiy performed Pleyel’s Grand Duo No. 1 for Violin and Viola, Leclair’s Sonata No. 1 for two violas op. 12, Kelsh’s Saranac Sketches for Violin and Viola (official public premiere), Moretti’s Golá (from Twelve Jewish Songs), and the Handel-Halvorsen Passacaglia for Violin and Viola. They then spent the rest of the week holed up in the studio recording this program with sound technician Joel Hurd. They promised to do their “homework” before leaving for their concert tour in Hungary and Romania: a time-consuming and intensely focused job of listening critically, selecting the best takes, and submitting them to Joel for mastering. We’ll keep you posted as this exciting project develops!
