Wine Tastings and Reception provided by the CCO Board of Directors

BAX: Quintet for Oboe and Strings
ELGAR: Piano Quintet in A Minor, Op 84

 

COMPOSERS FROM ENGLAND move to the forefront in our third concert of the series as we present two impressive quintets by Sir Edward Elgar and Sir Arnold Bax.  A string quartet plus oboe was a highly unusual combination at the time Bax wrote this work but his colorful writing makes this a winning combination.  For his piano quintet, Elgar had an unlikely source of inspiration from a story about the supernatural, a topic the composer loved.

Performers to include: Christina Bouey, Hisaichi Shimura, Melinda Daetsch, Anthony Bracewell, Rosemary Elliott, John Lathwell, and Xak Bjerken.

 

This season, we offer a special treat with post-concert receptions intended to complement the music.  Free to all ticket-holders, it’s a wonderful way to spend an afternoon with memorable live music, regional wine and beer tastings, and fellow music lovers.  Be sure to get your tickets today!
