Charles Wetherbee & David Korevaar – Recital Duo
Denver Eclectic Concerts and Music Appreciation Society invite you, your friends and family to experience “Baur’s Magic” with Boulder’s most distinguished recital duo, violinist Charles Wetherbee and pianist David Korevaar when they perform in Baur’s wonderful and historic salon. They will be presenting a highly original program with a repertoire that spans many genres and sensibilities.
Violinist Charles Wetherbee has performed throughout the world, including Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Canada, Mexico, and the United States. He is an artist dedicated to the music of today as well as to the great literature of the past. In May of 2007, he was invited to St. Petersburg, Russia, to give the Russian premiere of Grammy Award winning composer John Corigliano’s Violin Concerto, and was subsequently invited back to perform the Beethoven concerto in the famous Shostakovich Philharmonic Hall. Charles has been heard nationwide on the NPR program “Performance Today”, featuring his performance of the Red Violin by Mr. Corigliano with Joanne Falletta and the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. A devoted chamber musician, Charles is the first violinist of the Carpe Diem String Quartet, with whom he tours and performs regularly.
David Korevaar’s mastery of the piano is joined with a large and varied repertoire, and enhanced by his work with living composers and his own experience writing music. He successfully balances an active performance career as a soloist and chamber musician with teaching at the University of Colorado Boulder, where he is the Peter and Helen Weil Professor of Piano. He is currently a member of the Boulder Piano Quartet (Boulder Public Library’s ensemble-in-residence), and University of Texas at Dallas’s resident Clavier Trio, and has performed as guest artist with the Takács, Manhattan, and Colorado Quartets. He was a founding member of the Young Concert Artists award-winning piano and wind ensemble Hexagon, with which he toured for many years.
Jointly presented by Denver Eclectic Concerts and Music Appreciation Society, Charles Wetherbee on violin will be accompanied by David Korevaar playing Baur’s Steinway grand piano. A recital in the salon that will transform your Thursday night into a musical soiree!

– “Eclectic Concerts keeps an open mind. While other series are all about specializing and refining — trying to hone the best of chamber music or piano jazz — Eclectic works hard not repeat itself. Its mission is diversity and showcasing just how varied Denver’s players can be.” -Ray Rinaldi, Denver Post Fine Arts Critic
– “Our simple biased belief is that handmade music does this better than any other music. And we know that Denver has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to thoughtful, expert musicians. We want you to come hear them, talk to them in a more informal setting. We think you’ll find out why the music salons in days of old were such exciting incubators of creativity. It surely had something to do with the amount of personal connection between the creators and their audience.” —Susan Cahill and Scott Higgins, Co-Directors, Denver Eclectic Concerts
