"1930s Mixed Chamber Music"
The 1930s were a pivotal time in political and musical history. Join us for an evening of mixed wind and string chamber music from three of the most influential composers of the era. The program opens with the charming “Promenades,” by Bohuslav Martinů, written for the unusual and captivating combination of flute, violin and harpsichord (1939). We’ll celebrate Benjamin Britten’s centennial with The Phantasy Oboe Quartet (1932). Closing the program will be the incomparable Bartok Contrasts, originally dedicated to Benny Goodman and Joseph Szigeti (1938). Commentary provided by the always brilliant and entertaining Jim Lovensheimer.
