Under the direction of NEC faculty pianist Pei-Shan Lee, Sonata Night is an evening of piano-instrumental masterworks featuring collaborative pianists in partnership with their instrumental colleagues.

Sonata, a musical term of several meanings, is used here to signify a duo form of equal partnership. Sonata Night programming spans a wide range of musical styles and features the world's greatest duo works from the Baroque through the 20th century, including compositional forms such as multi-movement suites and character pieces.

Sonata Night performers are coached jointly by faculty of the collaborative piano and instrumental departments.

Tonight is an all Brahms evening, performed in collaboration with Mai Motobuchi's viola studio.

This is an in-person event with a private stream available to the NEC community here
