Fabian Concert #1 at The Grand Opera House

The opening Fabian Concert of the 20-21 season will be a inspiring, celebratory evening, as we gather together to safely hear live music again— for many, the first time in five months! The program includes the soulful and dramatic piano quartet of Korngold, the Austrian born composer who moved to Hollywood and wrote for movie soundtracks, a little known piano quartet by Finnish composer Sibelius and the popular and lovely Bagatelles by the Czech composer Dvorak.  Recent Grammy winner and Fabian regular violinist James Ehnes, cellist Edward Arron, and pianist Andrew Armstrong are back in Macon to play with violinist Amy Schwartz Moretti for this healing and inspiring night of great music.
