The 2019/2020 Chamber Soirée season kicks off with a wide ranging program offering something for every listener. The Sarasota Brass Quintet provides a festive opening with Russian composer Victor Ewald’s Brass Quintet No. 1, perhaps the most beloved of all the Romantic era works for brass. The woodwinds are featured next in Francis Poulenc’s enchanting Trio for Oboe, Bassoon and Piano, rich with the wit and melodic gifts for which Poulenc is loved. Finally, Beethoven’s virtuosic Sextet for 2 Horns and String Quartet, full of fanfares and hunting calls, brings the program to a rousing conclusion.
