ROCHESTER- The Irrera Brothers Duo, along with musicians from the Eastman and Hochstein School of Music, will perform Schubert’s beloved Trout Quintet on March 2nd at 7pm at the Performance Hall at Hochstein (50 N. Plymouth Ave; Rochester, NY

14614). Admission is free and open to the public.

Praised by the New York Concert Review as presenting a “Riveting and dynamic” concert at Carnegie Hall in 2013, the celebrated Irrera brothers, Joseph (piano)and Jon (violin) are excited to return to the Rochester concert stage for this special appearance. For the performance of Schubert’s Trout Quintet, Joseph and John will be joined by Emily Cantrell (viola), Joan Kinsella, (cello), and Wan-Ling Chuang (bass). The evening will also feature Prokofiev’s Sonata for Violin and Piano in D Major, Op. 94a.

The Irrera Brothers’ story is unique, not only in respect to their relationship as brothers, but also due to the fact that both came full circle at the Eastman School of Music, where they not only began studying music as children over 20 years ago, but where they also later served as faculty. Joseph and John also created a bit of Eastman history when in May of 2014 they became the first sibling pair in the school’s 93-year history to ever receive their Doctorate Degrees together in the same year.

Joseph is a Steinway Artist and the Irrera Brothers have also recently signed with New York City management firm, Parker Artists. The brothers concertize throughout the United States and abroad each concert season and they are pleased to include this special appearance at Hochstein as part of their 2014-2015 Concert Season.
