Five consummate musicians deliver 19th century gems from Beethoven, Schubert and Bottesini before combining forces for Schubert's “Trout Quintet,” one of the most popular works in the chamber repertory. The program begins with Beethoven’s variations on Mozart’s “The Magic Flute” for cello and piano; Schubert’s Sonata in A-minor for viola and piano; and Bottesini’s Gran duo concertante for violin, bass and piano.
The Chamber Music Society’s annual schedule includes a full performance season in New York, a full season of national and international touring, nationally televised broadcasts on PBS’ Live From Lincoln Center and regular broadcasts on SiriusXM and American Public Media’s Performance Today.
