SCHUBERT'S CELLO QUINTET Sunday, October 27, 2019 5:00PM   ·   More Info »
SCHUBERT'S CELLO QUINTET

There are few works in all of music which command the awe and affection of Schubert’s Cello Quintet. Written at a feverish pace as the 31-year-old composer neared death, the quintet’s mesmerizing transcendence has made it an essential listening ritual for music lovers. Inspired by Schubert’s immortal creation, Bruce Adolphe offers a deeply-felt cello quintet, preceded by the first of six landmark string quintets by Mozart.

CORELLI'S CHRISTMAS CONCERTO Sunday, December 8, 2019 5:00PM   ·   More Info »
CORELLI'S CHRISTMAS CONCERTO

Arcangelo Corelli was not only history’s first truly “modern” violinist, but a musician’s musician whose compositions were performed throughout Europe during his lifetime. His “Christmas Concerto”—Fatto per la notte di Natale—is an early, Baroque age miracle of tone painting. The high drama of the Nativity scene is thrust upon the listener from the outset; the pastoral visions of nearby shepherds provide soothing contemplation at the work’s conclusion. No doubt the magic generated by Corelli’s genius has made this work an audience favorite, and CMS offers it in the company of bracing music from five additional composers.

SAINT-SAËNS'S FIRST PIANO TRIO Sunday, January 26, 2020 5:00PM   ·   More Info »
SAINT-SAËNS'S FIRST PIANO TRIO

French chamber music almost completely disappeared after the Baroque era, and it was Camille Saint-Saëns who forged the path for his countrymen in the mid-19th century. His beguiling, elegant, and quintessentially French First Piano Trio no doubt inspired his countrymen to follow suit, as you will hear in the classics by both Ravel and Fauré.

BEETHOVEN STRING QUARTETS: PART V Sunday, February 16, 2020 5:00PM   ·   More Info »
BEETHOVEN STRING QUARTETS: PART V

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.

BARTÓK'S SONATA FOR TWO PIANOS AND PERCUSSION Sunday, March 15, 2020 5:00PM   ·   More Info »
BARTÓK'S SONATA FOR TWO PIANOS AND PERCUSSION

A feast for the eyes and ears, Bartók’s ingenious creation stands alone in the chamber music literature, an astonishing synthesis of percussion and keyboard. Also featured on the program are two more milestones: Dohnányi’s delectable Serenade, the 20th century’s first string trio, and Tchaikovsky’s String Sextet ne plus ultra, “Souvenir de Florence.”

GERSHWIN'S RHAPSODY IN BLUE Sunday, April 19, 2020 5:00PM   ·   More Info »
GERSHWIN'S RHAPSODY IN BLUE

In terms of pure musicality, George Gershwin was America’s Schubert. He composed with a creativity and skill that immortalized his art, and hardly any of his works is more embedded in the world’s musical consciousness than Rhapsody in Blue, originally described by Gershwin as a “symphony” for piano solo and jazz band. This extraordinary chamber music program pays tribute to great composers who crossed the bridge between the classical and jazz idiom, with dazzling results.

MENDELSSOHN'S OCTET Sunday, May 17, 2020 5:00PM   ·   More Info »
MENDELSSOHN'S OCTET

We end our milestone season with a work rightly considered a true miracle: Mendelssohn’s Octet. Written by the composer when he was only 16 years old, it is as masterful in every way as the valedictory works of any composer. Words cannot describe the excitement this piece generates in the concert hall; one simply has to experience it. Mendelssohn’s Octet has inspired countless works, two of which are on this program: Shostakovich’s compact and frenetic octet of 1925, and Enescu’s towering octet of 1900.
