Classical music music videos? Social media string quartets? Cellist Alexander Hersh and violinist Brian Hong are at the forefront of a new generation of virtuoso classical musicians applying what might be soon called “the internet of music” to bring their extraordinary artistry to those not yet acquainted with the classical music world. How have their efforts been received by the concert-going public and have they earned the support (or even the derision) of their older colleagues? But those who don’t take younger generations’ dreams seriously beware: “for man is a giddy thing, and this is my conclusion,” declares Shakespeare’s eternal bachelor character, Benedick, as he happily marries Beatrice. Come welcome Alexander and Brian to our show!
