Viola duo will perform at Wilton Library on Feb. 21

Nick Revel, a Wilton High School graduate, returns to Wilton Library as part of a dynamic viola duo, Folie à Deux, for a Connecticut’s Own concert on Friday, Feb. 21, from 7 to 8 p.m. Partnered with Nora Krohn, the couple performs intricate pieces that are specifically written for viola duos and yet seldom heard.

Mr. Revel is a graduate of Eastman School of Music in Rochester, N.Y. where he studied with John Graham. He has a thriving New York City career performing as a soloist, chamber musician, improviser, orchestral violist, as well as composing and teaching. He performs regularly in New York City, as well as having made appearances in Berlin and Tokyo.

Ms. Krohn, a native of Baltimore, and a graduate of Brown University and SUNY Purchase, plays regularly with the Ridgefield Symphony, Binghamton Philharmonic, and DiCapo Opera.

Their concert program, Folie à Deux, is named for “a psychological condition where two individuals in a close relationship share the same fantastical delusion.” They seek out viola duo instrumentation which is rare and the repertoire is scarce. The evening’s repertoire will include Sydney Hodkinson, Michael Daugherty and a piece written by Mr. Revel entitled “Energy.”

Wilton Library’s Connecticut’s Own concerts are free. Advance registration is highly recommended due to the popularity of the series.
