Some first-rate playing from a Ritz Chamber Players recital in 2010 - here are pianist Terrence Wilson, violinist Kelly Hall-Tompkins, violist Amadi Azikiwe, and cellist Kenneth Law playing the Andante con moto from the Brahms G minor Piano Quartet Op. 25. The Ritz Chamber Players focus on bringing both African American performers and composers to the concert stage with a mandate that consists of equal parts performance and outreach. I hope they introduce a lot of people to the joys of classical music with performances like this.
The next Ritz Chamber Players recital will be at 4pm on February 20 at the Friday Musicale in Jacksonville, Florida, featuring violist Amadi Azikiwe with Mary Prescott on piano (more info at AfriClassical).
