Little did we know, when we first heard harpsichordist Elena Zamolodchikova at the La Grua Center last year, what a vibrant, communicative musical personality we have in our midst. She is a brilliant, mature musician with a striking on-stage presence. Her rare skill as a voicer and keyboard finisher also make her a core resource at Stonington’s celebrated Zuckermann harpsichord workshop. It is a privilege to announce Elena’s Music Matters debut, a celebration of Johann Sebastian Bach.
Join us to hear the Master, masterfully played!
