Musical Masterworks Changes Upcoming Program Due to COVID Constraints; Park, Arron Will Now Play Works by Beethoven, Schumann & Franck

Edward Aaron and Jeewon Park

OLD LYME — In a change from the originally scheduled program, Musical Masterworks now looks forward to welcoming Jeewon Park (piano) and Edward Arron (cello) to the stage of the First Congregational Church of Old Lyme with a seasonal performance of Beethoven, Schumann and Franck.

Musical Masterworks Marketing Director Robbin Myers explains in an email to LymeLine.com, “The health and wellbeing of our artists is of critical importance to us so we have decided that long-distance flight travel [required by several of the previously scheduled performers] is not prudent during this difficult time.”

She then notes that, since they live locally, the husband and wife duo of Arron and Park are able to travel safely by car to the First Congregational Church of Old Lyme,
This concert video will be released to ticket buyers on Jan. 2, 2021 and available for viewing for the following three weeks. The video can be watched as many times as one wishes. 
The revised program for this concert is detailed below:
Edward Arron, cello
Jeewon Park, piano

Ludwig van Beethoven: 12 Variations on ‘See the conqu’ring hero comes’ from Handel’s Judas Maccabaeus, WoO 45 (1796)

Robert Schumann: Three Fantasy Pieces for Cello and Piano, Opus 73

César Franck: Sonata in A Major for Violin (played on Cello) and Piano

Ticket holders will be able to experience Musical Masterworks as never before: the audio-video production team will create an intimate concert experience, providing a virtual front row seat featuring the performers’ pure artistry.

In 2021, Musical Masterworks will welcome back numerous favorite artists, including Rieko Aizawa, Todd Palmer, Randall Scarlata, Gilles Vonsattel, and Tessa Lark, featuring music from Bach to Corigliano.
