Chamber Music Masters
January 20 @ 2:00 pm$15
From symphonic greats come miniature masterworks in this concert of musical gems. Robert Schumann puts his ultra-Romantic sensibilities on full display in his beloved Piano Quintet, one of the first works to ever pair piano with a string quartet. Strings, winds and brass playfully toss melodies back and forth in Paul Hindemith’s Baroque-inspired Octet. Franz Joseph Haydn is known as both Father of the Symphony AND the String Quartet. Part of his last and most renowned set, the D major Quartet is full of surprising harmonic turns and inventive thematic variations.
