Meaty and Moving Performance by the Davydov-Fanning Duo

Cellist Dieuwke Davydov and pianist Diana Fanning, both longtime Affiliate Artists at Middlebury College, performed their celebratory 40th Anniversary Concert program on Sunday, April 9, 2017 at the Saranac Methodist Church.  The performance was one of several stops in the Northeast before taking it on tour in Europe.  Forty years’ playing together!  The inexpressible luminous rapport between two old friends married with a profound depth of musical comprehension, intense emotional expression, and pure technical skill all comes together in a suspended moment in time, a glimpse of eternity. The substantial program featured Beethoven Cello Sonata No.2 in G Minor, op.5, Hindemith Fantasiestück, Brahms Cello Sonata No.1 in E Minor, op.38, and Camille Saint-Saëns Allegro Appassionato, op.43; plus Chopin “Berceuse” and two Debussy Études for solo piano.
