Cellist Michael Samis, recognized for his “shining and expressive” playing (The Tennessean) and “haunting” tone (Cincinnati Post), and Blair pianist Amy Dorfman collaborate in works by composers who had a voice in human rights. The duo perform sonatas by Dame Ethel Smyth, who spent time in prison because of her work in the women’s suffrage movement, and Ludwig van Beethoven, who always advocated for human equality.
