Mozart—K. 589 (B-flat major)
For our final concert of the summer season, on August 14 we will present something different in classical music, the Chicago-based husband-and-wife bassist-and-violin duo, The Dotys, who will perform with a guest pianist.
Karl Doty, currently on the Dartmouth music faculty, is one of the most versatile bassists of his generation and is a co-founder and member of the orchestral group A Far Cry. He enjoys frequent collaborations with groups like Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, Orchestra of St. Luke’s, St. Paul Chamber Orchestra and New Century Chamber Orchestra. Though the bass isn’t the most common concerto instrument, Karl has performed as a soloist with orchestras all over the country as well as at home and on national tour with A Far Cry.
His wife Liesl, an accomplished violinist who performs actively as a soloist throughout the U.S. and Europe and as a member of A Far Cry, is also a champion fiddle player (so expect some fiddling too!). Originally from quaint Cape Girardeau, MO Liesl’s career has taken her well beyond the banks of the Mississippi River. Hailed for her “magnetic presence“, she has performed across North America and Europe, appearing at major venues including Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium, Weill Recital Hall, Zankel Hall, The Musikverein, The Kravis Center, The Kennedy Center and performs actively as a soloist having worked with several orchestras in the United States.
“Of all the hundreds of fiddlers I have heard over the years, Liesl has the finest tone of any. The sound of her violin is absolutely amazing and she uses it to its fullest!” — “Nashville Cat” Buddy Spicher, Nashville, TN
