Alessio Bax in the Dumbarton Oaks Music Room

The Friends of Music presented pianist Alessio Bax in a pair of stunning recitals on November 4 and 5, which received standing ovations. Mr. Bax performed Johannes Brahms' Four Ballades, opus 10; Sergei Rachmaninov's transcriptions of Fritz Kreisler's beloved violin pieces Liebesleid and Liebesfreud; a selection of five preludes by Rachmaninov; and Variations on a Theme by Paganini, by Brahms. The concert on November 5 was recorded by Classical WETA for future broadcast on Front Row Washington, a program of classical music performances in local venues.

In December, the all-male a cappella ensemble, Cantus, makes its Dumbarton Oaks debut with an international program in the Music Room, including selections of seasonal works.
