The past 18 months have been pretty tough. Lots of things have changed, and we need to take stock, revitalize, and consider the future. With that in mind we’ve decided to go on hiatus for the 2021-2022 season. We wish everyone good health and great music. Until next time, be well.
We’ve got two exciting concerts coming up this spring.
First, on March 7, 2020 we’re collaborating with guitarist Peter Zisa on a concert featuring two rarely-heard works from the 17th and 19th century for guitar and string quartet – Sylvius Leopold Weiss’ Concerto for Lute, and Mauro Giuliani’s Concerto for Guitar, Op. 30 . Originally written for guitar with string orchestra, they work very well arranged for string quartet. Rounding out the program will be one of Beethoven’s most loved quartets, his mighty Op. 59 no 1 “Rasumovsky” quartet.
On March 29, 2020 we return to the Camerata Music Salem series. We’ll be playing two works of Beethoven in honor of his 250th birthday year – the Op. 59 no 1 “Rasumovsky” quartet and the sublime Cavatina movement from his Op. 130 quartet. Tchaikovsky’s Quartet No. 1 in D major, Op. 11 will bring the concert to a rousing conclusion!
Please visit the Events Calendar page for more information.
Our Camerata Musica concert originally scheduled for January 29th has been rescheduled to Sunday, April 9th. As always, the concert is at 2:30 p.m., and is free to the public. The program will consist of Anton Webern’s early Langsamer satz, Beethoven’s great C-sharp minor Quartet, Op. 131, and Dvorak’s final string quartet in A-flat major. We hope to see you there!
