About the artists: Our three pianists this evening claim origin in distant lands – Jingxuan (Jing) Zhang is an immigrant from China, Sasha Beresovsky was born in the former USSR, and Elias Dagher is a Lebanese-Bostonian – yet a deep confraternity with the musical universe of Franz Schubert has played its part in the repeated minimizations of geographical disparities. Elias and Jing are currently housemates in Quincy, Mass. studying at the New England Conservatory in the studio of Georgian pianist Alexander Korsantia. The weekend before last, Sasha joined the two friends for several days of gardening preparations, delicious meals, moped maintenance, Fellini movies, excursions to the windmills and sea-views of Hull-town and, of course, rehearsals. Jing and Elias are frequent Schubertian collaborators, dating back to their days as students at Columbia University and Julliard. Sasha and Elias, meanwhile, had performed right here at the Alexandria Lyceum in the 2016 version of “Pianists for Soldiers.” Today the three friends team up for the first time in a truly expansive presentation of some of Schubert’s most beautiful works in the four-hand genre. Throughout the evening, you will frequently see and hear Sasha and Jing take turns weaving Schubert’s irresistible melodies on the upper (primo) part, clothed, prodded, and otherwise supported by Elias on the more harmonic and rhythmical lower (secondo) part. We hope you enjoy it!
