Middlesex Community College’s A World of Music spring concert series continues with a concert featuring Ryu Goto, an internationally acclaimed violinist, and MCC Music Department faculty member Carmen Rodriguez-Peralta, piano at 8 p.m. Friday, April 17, in MCC’s Concert Hall (Building 6), on the Bedford campus, 591 Springs Road. The concert is free and open to the public.
Established as a significant voice in classical music, Goto’s career began at age 7 when he made his debut at the Pacific Music Festival in Sapporo, Japan. Since then, Goto has appeared as a soloist with many of the world’s leading orchestras, including the National Symphony Orchestra, London Philharmonic, Munchner Philarmoniker, and the Sydney Symphony.
Alongside MCC Music Department faculty member Carmen Rodriguez-Peralta, the duo will perform “Sonata in A Major” by Cesar Franck, “Tocar” by Kaija Saariaho, and the virtuosic “Variations on an Original Theme” by Henryk Wieniawski. Goto will be playing the Stradivarius 1722 violin “Jupiter” on loan to him from the Nippon Music Foundation.
Rodriguez-Peralta has appeared as a piano soloist and chamber musician throught the United States, Peru and Mexico. As a winner of Artists International Young Musicians Auditions, she was presented in two solo recitals at Carnegie Recital Hall in New York, and has performed in the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, D.C., Seiji Ozawa Hall in Tanglewood, and in the Dame Myra Hess Concert Series in Chicago and Los Angeles.
