Emerson Avenue Salonlines Proudly Presents
a YouTube Broadcast live from New York City!

Olga Vinokur & David Kalhous

piano four-hands

Acclaimed pianists and frequent collaborators Olga Vinokur and David Kalhous join forces to present a program of German and Czech music for piano four-hands.  Schubert’s wondrous Fantasia in F minor, one of the greatest works for four-hand piano, will open the program.  Waltzes and Dances by Brahms and Dvořák, two great Romantic composers who shared an admiration for each other, will feature in the second part of the concert.  Waltzes by Wolfgang Rihm, one of the most important German composers working today, will round up the evening.

We are delighted with how many of you have come along with us on our venture into the “virtual” online world (here’s to virtue!)  We hope to continue to host and broadcast Salonlines almost every Sunday evening at 7:30 until this dreaded situation eases.

This is the new “normal” Emerson Avenue Salonline — the performance is obviously free but you can send a donation to Olga and David via PayPal via my personal email, or by mailing a check to Bill Ewing, 1508 Emerson Avenue, Mclean VA 22101.

Our artists REALLY appreciate your show of support!


We (Jackie & Bill) will MATCH ALL DONATIONS 100%!!

“What about food”, you say? Imagine strangers coming together — within inches of one another — and sharing food! Not yet, but we’re thinking about it. Your input welcome…
