Called a “volcanic violinist with a huge, fabulous tone” (Los Angeles Times), Lara St. John is equally at home with classical works, new music, folk, and beyond. She is joined by multifaceted pianist Matt Herskowitz, recognized for his jazz, world music, and free improvisation skills. The duo performs a deliciously eclectic program that features Debussy’s Violin Sonata (a work filled with verve and light), Milica Paranosic’s arrangement of the traditional Macedonian circle dance Čoček, Martin Kennedy’s spectacularly virtuosic and wildly raucous Czardashian Rhapsody, and much more.

Classical Interludes is made possible in part with support from Dr. Beverly S. Jacobs, James J. O’Toole and many generous individuals, as well as public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
