NOV 1, 2013
Our Chamber season opens with a beautiful trio of works by three German Romantics. Featured is Brahms' Piano Trio No. 1, Op. 8—emotionally charged and filled with virtuosity.

The evening begins with a haunting hymn for cello and bass by Alfred Schnittke, the father of polystylism. Also hear Tchaikovsky's String Quartet No. 1, the piece that famously brought Leo Tolstoy to tears.
FEB 7, 2014
Dvořák's Piano Quintet No. 2 is widely acknowledged as a masterpiece of the form. Paired with Beethoven's Trio for clarinet, cello, and piano, and music by Drzwiecki based on a Wallace Stevens poem, this program boasts ingenuity from three musical minds.

World-renowned violinist Midori joins this exciting program featuring music from Hungary to Argentina. Shostakovich's suspenseful and emotional String Quartet No. 4 highlights the first half of the program, and a collection of tangos by Ástor Piazzolla adds Argentinian flair.
