Graduation Recital: Francis Carr, cello

April 6, 2021, 12 p.m. ET

Start and end dates to be determined.


Cellist Francis Carr kicks off our spring season of student graduation recitals. His performance features three works by J. S. Bach, including the Cello Suite in G major, one of the most transcendent and popular works in the cello repertoire. The performance includes the hymn-like, expressive Caprice in E-flat major by Alfredo Piatti, a protégé of Franz Liszt. He is joined on the final piece by his parents, making this recital a family affair!
