Father and Daughter Team Play Brahms and Beethoven

at Concert Hall

Violinist Pamela Frank and her father, pianist Claude

Frank, who have been hailed as “the hottest tickets of the

musical season” by the Boston Globe, will give a concert

at Middlebury College on Saturday, March 15, at 8 p.m. in the

Concert Hall in the Center for the Arts.

Claude Frank, who has been known to transfix his

audience with emotion, has one of the most distinguished careers

of any pianist, having repeatedly appeared with the world’s foremost

orchestras, at major festivals and at most prestigious universities

since his debut with Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic

in 1959. Last year, which marked his 70th birthday, Mr. Frank

gave joint recitals with his daughter, violinist Pamela Frank,

in Baltimore, Bethesda, Philadelphia, on St. Paul Public Radio,

at the 92nd Street Y in New York City, northern Italy and Japan.

He has appeared with the greatest orchestras on all the continents,

and with eminent chamber groups such as the Juilliard Quartet

and the Emerson Quartet.

Pamela Frank is one of the most sought after chamber

music partner by today’s most distinguished soloists and ensembles.

She frequently receives standing ovations as she renders flawless

interpretations of violin concertos. Her 1995-96 season included

appearances with the Atlanta Symphony, the Boston Symphony, Washington’s

National Symphony, Miami’s New World Symphony, the San Francisco

Symphony, the New York Philharmonic, and the Vancouver Symphony.

She was featured on a “Live From Lincoln Center” telecast

of “Hausmusik” with Emanuel Ax, Yo-Yo Ma and others

from Alice Tully Hall. She has appeared at Tanglewood, Mostly

Mozart, Ravinia, the Hollywood Bowl, Aldeburgh, Colmar, Prague,

Grant Park, Riverbend the Blossom festivals, and has had recital

tours with Peter Serkin.

The March 15 program will include music by Brahms

and Beethoven. Tickets for this Concert Series event are $9 general

admission. Call 443-6433 to order tickets.
