LAST SONGS – Digital Premiere!

Our series opens with works from contrasting points in the lives of two great masters! We begin with a Beethoven trio written during his early years. Though charming, it hints at the dramatic shifts in mood that will come to characterize his later writing. The evening ends with a contemplative cycle of songs by Strauss, composed in the last year of his life. This concert features Soovin Kim, Jessica Bodner, and Marcy Rosen playing the trio, and Arianna Zukerman and Gloria Chien performing the Strauss.

Filmed at Elley-Long Music Center. Video access to this concert will be available until October 31.

SWAN SONG – Digital Premiere!

SWAN SONG combines a contemporary string quartet by prolific composer Adolphus Hailstork with the unforgettable Schubert cello quintet. Schubert's final work of chamber music is often regarded as one of the finest compositions of the art form. With the rare instrumentation of a full standard string quartet plus an additional cello, this compelling work is a favorite of many chamber music lovers. Plus, hear living composer Adolphus Hailstork's beautiful Adagio for Strings, a contemporary addition to the wonderful adagio tradition. The Parker Quartet and Marcy Rosen perform.

Filmed at Elley-Long Music Center. Video access to this concert will be available until October 31.
