On March 15, the SUNDAYS LIVE! Chamber Music Series presents violinist Phillip Levy and pianist Rina Dokshitsky performing Paderewski’s Sonata for Violin and Piano, Op.13. Also on the program are Mozart’s Sonata in G Major, K301, and Prokofiev’s Five Melodies, Op.35.
Born in Cardiff, Wales, Phillip Levy received his musical training in Israel and Europe. Upon returning to England he joined the English Chamber Orchestra and the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, with whom he also appeared as soloist. He led the London-based Locrian and Amphion String Quartets and was subsequently invited to give a performance of Bartók’s Violin Duos on a BBC television broadcast with Sir Yehudi Menuhin.
Israeli pianist Rina Dokshitsky gave her first solo appearance at age thirteen with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. At age twenty-one Ms. Dokshitsky won the Young Concert Artists International Auditions and subsequently made her debut recital at the 92nd Street Y and the Kennedy Center. She is a graduate of the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, where she earned a Bachelor and Master of Music and a Distinguished Artist Diploma.
