Summer Music Series: The Silver Duo
July 11, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This concert is indoors in the Lecture Hall.
GENRE: CELLO & PIANO DUO
Noreen Silver was born in Glasgow, Scotland. Her musical studies were nurtured in a family that appreciated artistic endeavor, and intellectual achievement. After studying at the Royal College of Music in London, Noreen spent a year in Geneva, Switzerland, studying with the great cellist Pierre Fournier. Later, a Rotary International Fellowship enabled her to study at the New England Conservatory, where she met her husband, pianist Phillip Silver.
Noreen’s performing career is centered around the cello/piano duo that she and Phillip formed while students. Phillip Silver is an internationally acclaimed solo and collaborative artist.
The Silver Duo has given live and recorded broadcasts on BBC’s Radio 3, the Israel Broadcasting Authority, Swedish National Radio and NPR. They have presented most of the standard cello/piano repertoire – and much of the non-standard repertoire – in concert halls in London, Prague, Frankfurt and Jerusalem.
