Cellist Harvey Wolfe is teaming up with aspiring pianist Dylan Marney for a recital to benefit Tucson's hungry.

The pair on Saturday will perform a concert of works by Beethoven, Mendelssohn and Richard Strauss to raise money for the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.

The pairing is exciting: Marney is a doctoral piano student at the University of Arizona and an artist with Opening Minds Through the Arts; Wolfe is a retired cellist with the renowned Cleveland Orchestra and a regular recitalist in his adopted winter home of Tucson.

The pair will perform Mendelssohn's D-major Sonata, Beethoven's 7 Variations on a theme from Mozart's "Magic Flute" and Strauss' Cello Sonata Op. 6, which Strauss wrote when he was 18.

"It is certainly not one of (Strauss') greatest pieces. ... But I love it. It's very much fun to play," Wolfe said.

Saturday's recital begins at 3 p.m. at Rincon Congregational Church, 122 N. Craycroft Road. Admission is a cash donation to the Community Food Bank at the door. Call 299-3192 for more information.

"I'm interested in the Community Food Bank, and I'm hoping that many people will come and will donate," he said.
