If you ever wondered what kind of music Albert Einstein preferred, here is your chance to find out.

"Einstein and His Violin," a concert commemorating the 50th anniversary year of the great scientist's death and the 100th anniversary of his best known scientific discoveries, will be presented by violinist Jack Liebeck and pianist Inon Barnatan at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 4, at the Christopher Newport University Center for the Arts.

Brian Foster, a particle physicist from Oxford University, will give a short introduction about Einstein's love of music. Selections to be played will include Mozart's "Sonata K301", Brahms' "Sonata in G major", Bloch's "Nigun" and Prokofiev's "Sonata in D Major."

The concert, which is sponsored by Jefferson Lab and Hampton University, is part of a World Year of Physics concert tour.
