BRAHMS'S CLARINET QUINTET Tuesday, November 19, 2019 7:30PM   ·   More Info »
BRAHMS'S CLARINET QUINTET

Before his death in 1897, Johannes Brahms memorialized his cherished, fast-disappearing Old World in works of breathtaking tenderness and profundity. Moved by the serene purity of the clarinet, he created a quintet for the ages, a heart-rending epitaph for himself and the 19th century combined. Schubert’s similar Fantasie, composed in the autumn of his life, and Schumann’s emotional Dichterliebe build a nostalgic musical path to Brahms’s late masterpiece.

BACH'S GOLDBERG VARIATIONS Tuesday, December 3, 2019 7:30PM   ·   More Info »
BACH'S GOLDBERG VARIATIONS

Some works of music are simply so great that they become something more than music. Bach’s “Goldberg Variations,” composed near the end of his life, consists of an aria and 30 unbroken variations. Lasting over an hour, the work is an immersive experience during which the listener journeys through time and space, emerging at its conclusion changed and enlightened. Jeffrey Kahane, one of a handful of true masters of this monumental opus, offers his incomparable performance as well as a deeply fascinating exploration of the variations.

CORELLI'S CHRISTMAS CONCERTO Tuesday, December 10, 2019 7:30PM   ·   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.

BACH'S BRANDENBURG CONCERTOS Tuesday, December 17, 2019 7:30PM   ·   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 III Tuesday, February 11, 2020 7:30PM   ·   More Info »
BEETHOVEN STRING QUARTETS: PART III

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.

MENDELSSOHN'S OCTET Tuesday, May 19, 2020 7:30PM   ·   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.
