Haimovitz, Frank and friends play the contemporary classics

For cellist Matt Haimovitz, everything is chamber music.

Haimovitz has made a name for himself in the solo world, which can be more challenging for a cellist than a violinist. His childhood friend, violinist Pamela Frank, has her own prominent solo career, having traveled the world to appear with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, the Orchestre de Paris, the New York Philharmonic and the Boston Symphony Orchestra, among others.

“We would have chamber music parties at Pam’s house,” Haimovitz said. “We would read sextets and quintets. … The best way we partied was to read chamber music. And it was tremendous fun.”

Still partying, Haimovitz will join Frank and violist Nokuthula Ngwenyama and violinist Andy Simionescu to perform at 4 p.m. today in Elizabeth S. Lenna Hall as part of the Logan Chamber Music Series.
