Smart bets: Pan Harmonia Sonata Series

Pan Harmonia, now in its 15th season of bringing professional chamber music to diverse venues, presents the third of four 2015 Sonata Series programs, reuniting Pan Harmonia co-founder and former Ashevillean Liz Austin with several musical colleagues from her past. The cellist will accompany flutist Kate Steinbeck and pianist Fabio Parrini for favored classics, including Felix Mendelssohn’s “epic and fiery” Trio No. 1 in D-minor, William Hurlstone’s “sublimely beautiful and romantic” Sonata for Cello and Piano, and Philippe Gaubert’s Sonata No. 1 for flute and piano, according to organizers. Performances take place on Thursday, March 5, at 7:30 p.m. at White Horse Black Mountain and on Sunday, March 8, at 3 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church in downtown Asheville. $16.50 advance/$22 at the door/$5 students.
