HAYDN'S JOKE QUARTET Sunday, October 20, 2019 5:00PM   ·   More Info »
HAYDN'S JOKE QUARTET

The punchline comes at the end, but this quartet by Haydn sets throughout a standard of chamber music composition equaled by only the greatest masters. Haydn can indeed be devilishly humorous, and this quartet will seem all the more so in the company of his earlier Sturm und Drang Op. 20 quartet, and the sublime quartet by Mozart which was inspired by Haydn and dedicated to him with reverence.

STRAVINSKY'S THE SOLDIER'S TALE Sunday, November 24, 2019 5:00PM   ·   More Info »
STRAVINSKY'S THE SOLDIER'S TALE

In a single decade, with works such as The Firebird and The Rite of Spring, Igor Stravinsky showed possibilities for musical extremism never before imagined. With bracing harmonies, infectious rhythms, and brilliant orchestration, everything that Stravinsky created in this fertile period stole the musical show of the era, and this trio arrangement of The Soldier’s Tale (Stravinsky’s own) introduced his wildly controversial music to the chamber music stage. Innovations abound in this milestone program: Beethoven’s Clarinet Trio (the first of its kind), Mendelssohn’s Songs Without Words (his own invention), and Smetana’s Piano Trio, the first major chamber work from the Bohemian region.

BACH'S BRANDENBURG CONCERTOS Sunday, December 15, 2019 5:00PM   ·   More Info »
BACH'S BRANDENBURG CONCERTOS

If Johann Sebastian Bach had only left the world his six Brandenburg Concertos, he would still reside in the pantheon of the great composers. With their stunning variety of novel instrumentations, their unforgettable tunes, and their irresistible energy, the Brandenburgs easily serve as a definition of what good music should be. This cycle has become so essential for New York listeners that CMS is proud to once again offer the Brandenburgs in three performances, in the incomparable acoustics of Alice Tully Hall.

BEETHOVEN STRING QUARTETS: PART II Sunday, February 9, 2020 5:00PM   ·   More Info »
BEETHOVEN STRING QUARTETS: PART II

Ludwig van Beethoven literally changed the course of music—not only how music sounded, but how it was performed, listened to, and used in society. Beethoven’s 16 string quartets, composed in groups corresponding to his early, middle, and late periods, leap from one level of sophistication to the next. They tell the complete story of one of history’s greatest artists, a composer possessed of an inexplicable, cosmic genius whose work continues to transcend the confines of era, style, or nationality.

The Danish String Quartet performs the quartets in the order that Beethoven composed them, between 1798 and 1826. Join us for one of music’s incomparable journeys.

SCHUMANN'S PIANO QUINTET Sunday, March 8, 2020 5:00PM   ·   More Info »
SCHUMANN'S PIANO QUINTET

Robert Schumann, in one of music’s most astonishingly creative outbursts, composed six major chamber works between June and December, 1842. His Piano Quintet established the genre as no work had before, becoming an instant classic and paving the way for the immortal quintets by such composers as Brahms, Fauré, and Shostakovich.

BEETHOVEN'S PIANO TRIO, OP. 1, NO. 1 Sunday, March 29, 2020 5:00PM   ·   More Info »
BEETHOVEN'S PIANO TRIO, OP. 1, NO. 1

Composed to help launch a major career in Vienna, Beethoven’s three Op. 1 piano trios are true milestones in the chamber literature. That Beethoven chose the piano trio to show his personality and skill speaks volumes of the stature of chamber music in the Classical age, and Beethoven did not disappoint: his first three trios earned him enough to pay his bills for almost three years. Debussy’s charming Petite Suite for Piano, Four Hands leads to the audacious, show-stopping chamber concerto of Chausson.

SCHOENBERG'S VERKLÄRTE NACHT Sunday, May 3, 2020 5:00PM   ·   More Info »
SCHOENBERG'S VERKLÄRTE NACHT

“Two people walk through the cold, bare woods.” This magical work by Schoenberg was created at two crossroads: the close of the 19th century, and the twilight of the Romantic age. Influenced by the lushness of Wagner, yet imbued with the integrity of Brahms, this beloved sextet bids a nostalgic farewell to the art and thinking of its time. This captivating program juxtaposes music of different eras, nationalities, and styles, all inspired by the enchanting mysteries of the night.
