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!
