The chamber music that we cherish so ardently is rooted in the music of towering Baroque master J.S. Bach, and this season we devote our February concert to his music and that of his contemporaries, Geminiani and Telemann.
From the Baroque period to our current age, our season overflows with performances of some of the most compelling music ever created. Mozart’s exquisite Divertimento K.543 and Mendelssohn’s impassioned String Quartet in E minor each epitomize Classicism and Romanticism, respectively.
Beethoven’s magnificent “Archduke” Trio spans both – and even anticipates the future.
Leading English composer Judith Weir’s impressionistic Piano Trio draws inspiration from diverse sources: a Schubert song, a Hebridean island’s deserted landscape and even an African phone box.
In January, we embrace Bohemia as we begin a series devoted to the chamber music of Dvorˇák, both cherished and neglected. Hungary shares the spotlight: with Bartók’s Magyar-inflected second string quartet and Kurtág’s intimate memorial for a treasured friend. Great music rewards audiences that embrace the opportunity to enjoy it.
