The July 30 program features pieces written for the clarinet: W.A. Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet in A major, K. 581 (1789), and Johannes Brahm’s Clarinet Quintet, Op. 115 (1891). Mozart, an innovator, was attracted to the clarinet just recently invented. Brahms was inspired by a great clarinet virtuoso, Richard Mühlfeld, who brought Brahms out of a self-imposed retirement from composition to write some of his final works.
The Manhattan Chamber Players is a
collective of New York-based musicians who share the common aim of performing the greatest works in the chamber repertoire at the highest level.
The August 13 concert is a showcase for two-cello pieces: Anton Arensky’s String Quartet, a rare one violin, one viola and two-cello quartet, and Franz Schubert’s String Quintet in C major (D. 956, Op. posth. 163) (1828).
The Omega Ensemble has fostered the careers of more than 180 artists including the winners of the Tchaikovsky, Naumburg, and Indianapolis Competitions; members of the Emerson, Orion, and Escher Quartets; and current concertmasters of the New York Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, and Chicago Symphony.
