The Canaletto Ensemble

The Canaletto Ensemble

Nonprofit recital series Sunday at Central will present a free performance called “Schubert’s Afternoon” by The Canaletto Ensemble on Sunday, March 17 at 3:00 p.m. in Columbus Museum of Art’s Cardinal Health Auditorium. Guests will have free access to galleries in CMA’s permanent collection.

The 90-minute concertfeatures two of the most famous works by 19th-century Austrian composer Franz Schubert: “Arpeggione Sonata” and “Trout Quintet.”Members of The Canaletto Ensemble include pianist Mariko Kaneda (faculty member, Ohio Wesleyan University); violinist David Niwa (Artistic Director of Sunday at Central and Acting Associate Concertmaster, Columbus Symphony Orchestra); Ken Matsuda (violist, Columbus Symphony Orchestra); and Luis Biava (principal cellist, Columbus Symphony Orchestra). Special guest Jean-Etienne Lederer (associate bass, Columbus Symphony Orchestra) will join the ensemble.

“These are two of our favorite pieces to perform,” said Niwa. “Why not celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with Schubert’s luscious colors, energetic melodies, and poetic reflection?”

This program is recommended for ages 9 and older. Columbus Museum of Art is located at 480 East Broad Street and parking is free. Donations to Sunday at Central will be graciously accepted.
