Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival presents Chopin in Paris: Un Voyage Musical Francais I on Friday, May 18th at 7:00 PM at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, located on the corner of Atlantic Avenue and 8th Street in historic Fernandina Beach.

The program will feature the Chopin Piano Concerto #1 and performers include Natasha Paremski, piano; Philip Pan, violin; Catherine Cosbey, violin; Eric Wong, viola; Christopher Rex, cello; John Wieland, bass, and the Linden String Quartet.

Noted for her virtuosity and flawless technique, Natasha Paremski was awarded the Classical Recording Foundation’s Young Artist of the Year Award in 2010. Born in Moscow, Ms. Paremski began her piano studies at the age of four and immigrated to the United States with her family in 1995. Her debut recital album was released in 2011, propelling her into an international career as a soloist well beyond her young age. Following a recent performance in San Francisco, a critic raved, “And can she play! Technique to burn, magic hands, solid rhythmic control, sensitive pedaling, mature stage presence, a real feeling for lush romantic music, the ability to handle blazingly rapid passagework, beautifully executed trills, and all made to look very easy…”

The Linden String Quartet has enjoyed remarkable success since its founding in 2008, capturing gold medals and grand prizes at prestigious national and international competitions and most recently winning the Concert Artist Guild Competition. Praised for its “remarkable depth of technique and brilliantly nuanced, sumptuous tonality” (MusicWeb International), the Linden is the Graduate String-Quartet-in-Residence at Yale University, where the ensemble is mentored by the renowned Tokyo String Quartet.

The cost is $50.00 per person and this includes a post concert champagne reception.
