Event Description

Lift your spirits with a chamber program that beams with bold exuberance. Brahms’ only piano quintet underwent several metamorphoses before reaching its final glorious form. A mighty work of tremendous scope, it earned the distinction of being Brahms’ great chamber music epic. The rapturous expression and exhilarating intensity of Mendelssohn’s string quintet ascend to nearly operatic heights, while two contemporary works by Gene Koshinski and Paul Schoenfield light up the stage with spectacular vitality and flair.
