Mayfest: Cornell’s International Chamber Music Festival
Red Newt is pleased to host sommelier Thomas Pastuszak for a special tasting and concert this Saturday, May 20th at 4:30pm.
A tasting of six Finger Lakes Rieslings from Herman J Wiemer, Keuka Lake Vineyards, and Red Newt will be followed by the Schumann Piano Quintet, first movement, and two folk selections from Hungary and Taiwan for string quartet.
Why Wine and Music? “…’interpretation’ is one of the most important factors of classical performance – the written music is the same, and everyone has access to it, but what makes performances so different is how the musicians interpret the piece. What if we applied the theme of ‘interpretation’ to Riesling and explore individual house styles (each vintner’s ‘interpretations’ of Dry Riesling) and show just how different they can be?
