Live from Hochstein – Ekstasis Duo

Featuring the Ekstasis Duo – Natasha Farny, cello, and Eliran Avni, piano – performing music by women composers.
As the nation celebrates the centennial of a woman’s right to vote, Ekstasis celebrates women’s creativity with a program called “Women’s Voices: Fierce women composers from the 19th and 20th Centuries.” The concert includes works by Louise Farrenc, Clara Schumann, and Ethel Smyth, and song transcriptions of Nina Simone.

The American cellist and Israeli pianist first met as students at Juilliard. As a duo, they celebrate masterpieces alongside the secret jewels of lesser-known works. https://www.ekstasisduo.com/
