Season subscription packages to the Sarasota Concert Association's 2019 Great Performers Series have been on sale for a while, but now single tickets are also available. Classical music lovers have the opportunity to hear six different concerts this season, five of them at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall and one at Riverview Performing Arts Center. The association's Great Performers Series is now in its 74th year.

Leading off the concert season will be piano duo Anderson & Roe-Greg Anderson and Elizabeth Joy Roe, performing Jan. 14. The program features Brahms' Sonata for Two Pianos, Op. 34b; variations on a theme of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah"; and their arrangement of the Beatles' song, "Let It Be." Pianist Jeremy Denk, one of America's foremost keyboard musicians, appears with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields on Feb. 21. On the program: Albinoni's Concerto Op. 5, No. 5 in A minor; a new commission by British composer Sally Beamish; Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 14 in E-flat Major; Elgar's Serenade for Strings; and Bartok's Divertimento for String Orchestra.   PHOTO: LISA MARIE MAZZUCCO
