“Our decision to perform these exquisite musical works is due to the intricacy of the art and how the two relate to each other,” says violinist Bo Pang. “We are moved by the intricacy of works by artists like Max Bechmann, Winslow Homer, and Kawase Hasui. All of us felt a deep connection to how this artwork relates to Haydn, Hindemith, Wallach, and Bach. There is an endurance to these composers and these artists – they work well together and we are honored to tie together both artforms in this multimedia recital.” Joseph Haydn – String Quartet Op. 20 No. 6 with Winslow Homer – An Open Window J.S.
