KATONAH, N.Y. -- Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts' Evnin Rising Stars program is a week of intense collaboration and musical discovery where distinguished artist/mentors pass on the great masterworks of the chamber music repertoire to a new generation of outstanding talent.

In its 22nd year, Rising Stars features three accomplished mentors: Pamela Frank (violin) — Avery Fisher Prize winner and Artistic Director of Evnin Rising Stars; Leon Fleisher — prolific pianist and subject of Oscar and Emmy-nominated documentary film "Two Hands" and Shmuel Ashkenasi —award-winning first violin of the famed Vermeer Quartet.

Each of these musicians in turn studied with earlier masters, including accomplished conductor Pierre Monteux and legendary pedagogue Ilona Feher.

The Rising Stars week culminates in two chamber recitals by the young virtuosos alongside these legends, on Saturday, Oct. 25 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 26 at 4 p.m. in the Music Room.

The two masterful chamber recitals features the works of Beethoven, Mozart and Brahms on Saturday and Dvo?ák, Mozart and Brahms on Sunday.
