The Ritz Chamber Players Perform the Brahms G minor Quartet, 3rd Movement
Some first-rate playing from a Ritz Chamber Players recital in 2010 - here are pianist Terrence Wilson, violinist Kelly Hall-Tompkins, violist Amadi Azikiwe, and cellist Kenneth Law playing the Andante con moto from the Brahms G minor Quartet Op. 25. The Ritz Chamber Players focus on bringing both African American performers and composers to the concert stage with a mandate that consists of equal parts performance and outreach. I hope they introduce a lot of people to the joys of classical music with performances like this.

Thanks for including me in this e-mail. It was a privilege and a BLAST to perform this with the RCP. Kenneth Law, Associate Professor of Violoncello; Chair, Department of Performance, Petrie School of Music, Converse College, 580 E. Main St., Spartanburg, SC
