The Glière is a charming set of works, performed far too rarely, and the Nielsen has a well-earned place of distinction in the repertoire for how it vividly demonstrates how well these instruments work together. Haydn has been dubbed the Father of the Symphony, but could just as easily be called the Father of the String Quartet as well. We’ll feature a wonderful example of how Haydn revolutionized the string quartet genre and created a model that inspired countless composers that followed.
All ticket-holders are invited to stay for the post-concert reception to get to know the performers, CCO board members, and your fellow audience members.
Since 1987, the CCO has proudly presented a concert series devoted entirely to chamber music and we hope you’ll join us for these programs that celebrate music that moves us.
Our appreciation goes out to the sponsors for this performance:
