New York, London, Tokyo, Haverhill! In 1978, a group of ten musicians holding principal positions with such prestigious ensembles as the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, Minnesota Orchestra, New York City Ballet and Opera Orchestras, and New York’s Speculum Musicae joined artistic forces in northern New Hampshire to present chamber music of the highest quality.
Chamber Players members Bernard Rose, piano, Susan Nidel, flute, Ronnie Bauch, violin, and Ah Ling Neu, viola, will be joined by North Country audience favorite, violinist Anna Lim, and world-renowned cellist, Edward Arron.
A native of Cincinnati, Ohio, Mr. Arron has garnered international recognition for his elegant musicianship and impassioned performances. He appears regularly as a soloist and chamber musician throughout North America, Europe, and Asia, has participated in YoYo Ma’s Silk Road Project, as well as Isaac Stern’s Jerusalem Chamber Music Encounters, and, is the Director of the Masterworks Concerts series in Lyme, Connecticut.
The program will feature masterpieces from three centuries, including Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s stylish and charming C Major Flute Quartet, Maurice Ravel’s colorful, tuneful and jazzy Sonata for violin and ‘cello, and Robert Schumann’s historic Piano Quintet. The first major work to combine piano with a string quartet, paving the way for similar pieces by such Romantic giants as Brahms and Dvorak, Schumann’s masterpiece is bold, energetic, enchantingly romantic and dazzling.
