Arts in the Village Presents the Daurov/Myer Duo on March 24

On Saturday, March 24, Arts in the Village will present a performance by the Daurov/Myer Duo. Since their formation in 2012, cellist Adrian Daurov and pianist Spencer Myer have explored and performed three centuries of masterworks from the repertoire for their respective instruments, both solo and in combination. For their first appearance in the Arts in the Village series, they will be presenting works by Beethoven, Foss, Mendelssohn, and Prokofiev.

At the age of 15, Daurov made his debut as soloist with the St. Petersburg State Symphony Orchestra in his native city. Subsequently, he earned top honors at three international competitions: Bulgaria’s 1st International Music Competition (First Prize, 1996), the Netherlands’ Peter De Grote International Music Competition (Grand Prix, 2002), and New York City’s LISMA International Music Competition (First Prize, 2004). In 2004, he toured as a soloist with the St. Petersburg Chamber Orchestra, performing in St. Petersburg, Moscow, Warsaw, and throughout Germany and was appointed to the dual position of principal cellist and soloist with the Bayreuth Youth Festival Orchestra. In 2008, he was a featured participant in a gala Carnegie Hall concert celebrating Russia’s Independence Day. In 2012, he formed his own ensemble, the award-winning Voxare Quartet, with which he still tours.

Gold Medalist of the 2008 New Orleans International Piano Competition, Myer has been soloist with numerous orchestras all across the United States, as well as Mexico’s Orquesta Filarmónica de Jalisco, South Africa’s Cape Town and Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestras, and Beijing’s China National Symphony Orchestra. His recital appearances have been presented in New York City’s Weill Recital Hall, 92nd Street Y and Steinway Hall, Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, and London’s Wigmore Hall, among many others. A Steinway artist, Myer has collaborated with members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Chamber Music Series and at the Bard, Blossom, Cape Cod Chamber, Colorado, Meadowlark, Mendocino and Skaneateles music festivals, and many others. As an educator, he has been a frequent guest artist at workshops for students and teachers, including the 2013 National Conference of the Music Teachers National Association, where he was the Convention Artist.

This concert will take place on Saturday, March 24, at 7:30 p.m., at Goff Memorial Hall, 124 Bay State Road, in Rehoboth, MA 02769. Admission is $18 for adults, $16 for seniors, and $8 for students and children. The doors open at 7:00 p.m. for a wine bar, and tickets are available at the door. First-come, first-seated.
