    The Chamber Soirée season opens with two highly contrasting, 20th-century masterpieces. Shostakovich wrote his Eighth String Quartet in just three days in 1960. He dedicated the work to "all the victims of fascism and war." Ravel’s 1903 quartet was inspired by the music of Debussy. Its gentle melodies and rich sonorities evoke a peaceful optimism.

    Sarasota Orchestra musicians are joined by world-renowned pianist Orion Weiss, one of the most sought-after soloists in his generation of American musicians. Bach’s Trio Sonata from The Musical Offering for flute, violin, and keyboard is a Baroque masterpiece. César Franck’s mighty Piano Quintet is a highly Romantic work, full of brooding emotional intensity.

    Members of Sarasota Orchestra’s resident woodwind quintet bring to life two extraordinary works for wind instruments. André Jolivet composed the gorgeous trio Pastorales de Noël for flute, bassoon, and harp. The trio is a magical holiday season treat. David Maslanka was one of the United States' most important composers of music for wind instruments. His Wind Quintet No. 3 was inspired by the music of J.S. Bach.

    Music Director of the Sarasota Music Festival and world-renowned pianist Jeffrey Kahane joins three Sarasota Orchestra principal musicians for a program devoted to the intimacy of the sonata. Beethoven’s Third Cello Sonata is often noted as the first in history to give the cello and piano equal importance. Sarasota Orchestra’s Principal Cellist Natalie Helm brings this popular work to life. Bharat Chandra’s powerful clarinet voice will be heard in Brahms’ First Clarinet Sonata. Assistant Concertmaster Jennifer Best Takeda brings her artistry to Stravinsky’s Suite Italienne. Tuneful and witty, the "neo-Baroque" music is nothing short of brilliant.

    PROGRAM

    • BEETHOVEN Cello Sonata No. 3
    • BRAHMS Clarinet Sonata No. 1
    • STRAVINSKY Suite Italienne
  • Schumann And Brahms CS6

    The chamber season concludes with intimate fairy tales and largescale drama. Schumann’s Fairy Tales for clarinet, viola, and piano is a charming collection of miniatures, written shortly after Schumann first met a young Johannes Brahms. Brahms’ affection for Schumann’s wife, Clara, inspired him to begin his Piano Quartet in C Minor. Published as number three, it took him 20 years to finish. Brahms’ magnificent reflection on unrequited love provides a powerful conclusion to the chamber season.

    PROGRAM

    • SCHUMANN Fairy Tales
    • BRAHMS Piano Quartet No. 3

    INCLUDED IN:

    All 6 Chamber
