On March 11, New Zealand-born violinist Geneva Lewis, an Avery Fischer Career Grant recipient, performs music of darkness and light for piano and violin by Janáček, Messiaen, Lera Auerbach, Fauré, and Brahms. The brilliant 29- year-old Italian-born pianist and first-prize winner of the 2017 International Beethoven Piano Competition Vienna Rodolfo Leone performs a program of Brahms and Schumann for his debut in Newport on April 22. On May 13, harpist Bridget Kibbey and violinist Alexi Kenney come together for an evening of intimate and finely tuned musicality, from adaptations of the music of John Dowland and J. S. Bach to masterworks by Camille Saint Saëns and Sebastian Currier. Finally, on June 3, pianist Daniel del Pino performs Suite Iberia composed by Isaac Albéniz.
