Dikener, professor of cello and double bass at Marshall, and Botes, associate professor of piano, will perform sonatas by César Franck and Frédéric Chopin.
“We both are dedicated to perform the greatest chamber music works written for cello and piano, and these two sonatas represents the league of highly sought-after works in the repertoire and we have lots of fun performing them,” Dikener said. “Both works are well known, and the audience will get an opportunity to hear these popular works. The recital will last about an hour.”
The concert is sponsored by the School of Music in the College of Arts and Media.
