Twice as nice

Everyone loves a good pair: Rodgers and Hammerstein, Lennon and McCartney, Barbie and Ken, and don’t forget Calvin and Hobbes! The power of two equals great classical concerts in Minnesota this weekend, with collaborations old and new.

The Twin Ports’ Duluth-Superior Symphony offers Brahms’ Double Concerto for violin and cello, featuring the return of Geneva Lewis and Gabriel Martins, a couple on stage and in real life. Some listeners might remember Geneva Lewis as our Young Artist in Residence for Performance Today (on the cusp of the pandemic, no less).

Another old favorite, Bach’s Double Concerto for two violins, is the grand finale of a marvelously eclectic program by the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra.

The Fargo-Moorhead Symphony offers two double concertos for two violins! Music director Christopher Zimmerman brings his son, Kit Zimmerman, and Vietnamese musical friend, Chuong Vu, to perform Vietnam’s Four Seasons, by Dang Hong Anto, as well as Concertante for two violins by Jonathan Leshnoff. Both will be U.S. premieres.

“Double your pleasure,” as the song says, with these exciting upcoming performances!
