Milford-grown violinist/composer Eugene Feygelson and pianist Bobby Mitchell, just back from a triumphal appearance in Vienna, will perform at the Hawley Silk Mill in Hawley, Pa., on Friday, May 16 at 8 p.m., and at the Milford Theatre in Milford, Pa., on Saturday, May 17 at 7:30 p.m.

At this first official event in Kindred Spirits Arts Programs' spring-fall 2014 season, Feygelson and Mitchell will present Romantic-era chamber music by Johannes Brahms, Richard Strauss, Frederic Chopin, and contemporary South African composer Martin Scherzinger.

Feygelson and Mitchell, who live in London, have an ability to imbue the classics with flexibility and an element of surprise, which is the way these pieces would have been conceived by their composers and performed at their debuts. While most modern chamber music performance rests on a high level of pre-planning and reiterative execution, Mitchell and Feygelson prefer to leave things to chance and take risks during performances, using radically different rehearsal techniques to discover new ways the music can be played and heard. The result is a combination of classical music's complexity with the excitement of a live jazz performance.

Both Feygelson and Mitchell are graduates of the prestigious Eastman School of Music, in Rochester, NY, where they first met. Among other accomplishments, they have gone on to become founding members of the improvisation-based i=u Festival, currently held in London and New York (www.iequalsufestival.com).
