Smart bets: Counterparts — Bassoon and Sax

Pan Harmonia’s new Music and Wine Interlude series “pairs beautiful music with delicious food and wine,” beginning with solo, duo and trio performances at Isis Restaurant & Music Hall. Attendees will hear from Rosalind Buda on bassoon, Alan Theisen on saxophone and Ivan Seng on piano, as the local players showcase their instruments in various combinations. According to an event release, the selection of works ranges “from romance to contemporary creativity and music with Latin flair.” That includes Theison’s performance of three nature-themed, world-premiere pieces written by Clare Shore, Garrett Ian Shatzer and Stephen Dankner — the last of whom has waited 15 years for his composition to be performed. The musicians bring Counterparts — Bassoon and Sax to the Isis on Sunday, March 20, at 5:30 p.m. $15 ($7.50 students), not including food and wine. Photo of Buda by Micah MacKenzie
