Classical Duo at Russell Library

Emil Altschuler
On Thursday, November 19 at 7:00 p.m. in the Hubbard Room of the Russell Library, violinist Emil Altschuler and pianist Thomas Pandolfi will collaborate on a program featuring works ranging from Beethoven, Bach, and Paganini to rarely performed modern gems by Robert R. Bennett. Both of these virtuoso performers studied at the Julliard School, with Pandolfi earning his master of music degree there while Altschuler continued his studies at The Yale School of Music.

Altschuler currently teaches music at Tufts University and at Northeastern University, and at the New England Conservatory. He regularly collaborates on the Tufts Composers concerts, and is the violin coach for the Tufts Youth Philharmonic. Pandolfi, described by the Washington Post as "master of both the grand gesture and the sensual line," performs with orchestras across Europe and the United States.
