Alison Bruce Cerutti and Elizabeth Reid celebrate 15 years of their musical partnership in a series of concerts around Vermont. This Saturday on Elizabeth's YouTube channel, they will perform an evocative and varied program of 19th to 21st-century music. The Cerutti-Reid duo will give the world premiere of Saxtons River composer Carol Woods's work for viola and piano The Long Parting. Also featured are the American premieres of the works Curfew by Elisabeth Blair, A Study for Solo Viola (with Innocence) by Danielle O’Hallisey, and Sonata for Viola and Piano by David Jaeger. The program will also include Ballade by Claude Debussy, Fratres by Arvo Part, and the Sonata in f minor for viola and piano by Johannes Brahms. This last piece on this program was the one that sparked the start of Cerutti's and Reid's collaboration as a duo.
