Our popular Chamber Music Festival returns for its fifth season of incredible performances. Artistic Director and celebrated pianist Anne-Marie McDermott has selected a variety of moving works that will entertain classical aficionados and novices alike.
Friday's program includes Hummel's Piano Quintet in E flat. A composer highly regarded during his time as a prodigy on piano, this work showcases lyrical charm and subtle passion. Schubert’s “Trockne Blumen” is a singular virtuoso composition that features tremendously difficult passages for flute. Tchaikovsky’s Piano Trio is symphonic in scale, alternating between soaring and euphoric and tragic and funereal.
