Sunday Afternoons to offer a wide range of artists in 2012-13

By David Fleshler

Violinist Kim Chee-Yun will perform Feb. 17, 2013 for Sunday Afternoons of Music.

Several pianists, a pair of violinists and a return by acclaimed soprano Nadine Sierra mark next season’s schedule for Sunday Afternoons of Music.

The 32nd season of the concert series, run by Doreen Marx and held at the University of Miami’s Gusman Hall, opens Sept. 23 with a recital by duo pianists Maxim Mogilevsky and Valery Kuleshov. Next comes Sierra, a 23-year-old Fort Lauderdale native who gave a terrific performance as Gilda in this season’s Florida Grand Opera production of Verdi’s Rigoletto. The fast-rising soprano will perform Jan. 13 with her younger sister Melanie Sierra.

Two chamber groups will perform. First will be a trio made up of violinist Soovin Kim, cellist Amit Peled and pianist Alon Goldstein Jan. 26. The Cypress String Quartet, a San Francisco based ensemble, will conclude the season May 5. And piano recitals will be given by Alan Gampel on March 16 and Igor Levit on April 21.

Two charismatic violinists will be making their series debuts.  Kim Chee Yun will perform Feb. 17 and Lara St. John, whose performances were a highlight of this season’s SoBe Arts string festival, will appear March 10.
