Monteverdi • Vivaldi • Mozart • Mendelssohn
Our beloved Chamber Music Series returns, with three compelling programs exploring the connections between art, life, and music in three centuries of music, from Monteverdi to Mendelssohn!
The Chamber Music Series begins in December with a program highlighting the parallels between the music of Italian Baroque composers and two master artists of the Italian Renaissance, Pontormo and Tintoretto. An all-Mozart program in February showcases two of Mozart’s most beloved works, his Clarinet Quintet in A Major and an arrangement of his Sinfonia Concertante for Violin and Viola for string sextet, both of which reflect the composer’s exuberant and flamboyant personality. The series concludes in May with Mendelssohn the Prodigy, a program featuring two works written by Felix Mendelssohn while he was still a teenager, including his recently rediscovered Violin Concerto in D Minor.
