Ernő Dohnányi: Serenade for String Trio, Op.10

The University of Pécs is the oldest university in Hungary (having celebrated its 600th anniversary last year) and is nestled within the wine-producing region of southwest Hungary. Pécs and Charlottesville share many noteworthy characteristics, including being college towns rich in history, being a focal point for the arts, having charming pedestrian malls and laying claim to UNESCO world heritage sites.

Our hope is that these concerts will be the first of many such collaborations between our institutions.  This project is being supported by the McIntire Department of Music, the Office of the Vice Provost for the Arts and the Institute for Musical Arts at the University of Pécs.
