Chamber music is perceived by some as a stuffy, high-brow, and rarified form of classical music, even while, historically, string quartets were composed for amateurs, to play in the home. Today, professionals perform chamber music in concert halls all over the world, and the genre has long been mainstream. We will explore the richness of the chamber music repertoire from Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, and Mendelssohn, to Brahms, Dvorak, Bartok, and Shostakovich. Particular interpretations by certain musicians will also be critically examined.
Eight sessions. E - $265, L - $291.50
