“Nature bestowed on me a certain talent and also a little something that enables me to use this talent. Deep inside I possess a minuscule, invisible motor that allows me to accomplish a task in ten minutes, that would take others an hour or more. Thanks to it, I run, not walk. I speak fast, even my pulse beats faster than normal, and I was born two months premature.” You’ll hear the energy and quickened pace of the utterly original Polish composer Grazyna Bacewicz realized by violinist Grigory Kalinovsky and pianist Seonmi Lee in this concert devoted to singular talents and compositions, including the remarkable two-cello string quartet by Russian composer Anton Arensky, and an astonishing new cello quartet by 20-year old Jaylin Vinson, another young composer in a hurry.

Each concert is preceded by a complimentary Happy Hour at 5pm under the big Heifetz tent on nearby Page Terrace, designed to showcase the best regional wines and artisan foods.
