Event Description

Wednesday, May 4, 2016 | 7:30 P.M. | Fort Wayne History Center

Brahms is quoted as having said that Schubert "plays in such a region, at such a height, to which the others are far short of raising themselves." See and hear why this late work in the short life of a genius is such a masterpiece of elegance, melodic splendor and sensuous intimacy.

2016-2017 Season,/u>

Freimann 1
7:30 PM, Wednesday, October 12, 2016 at ArtsLab Black Box Theatre
2:30 PM, Sunday, October 16, 2016 at Rhinehart Music Center, IPFW
Beethoven Sonata No. 9 in A Major, Op. 47, “Kreutzer”
Beethoven String Quartet No. 11 in F Minor, Op. 95
Beethoven’s "Kreutzer" Sonata runs the gamut of emotions, from meditative, joyous, and exuberant to forceful. The composer said of his Opus 95, "The Quartet is written for a small circle of connoisseurs and is never to be performed in public" because of its interesting use of silences, seemingly unrelated outbursts, and uncharacteristic freedom with tonality. Lucky for the world that Beethoven's wishes were not honored.

Freimann 2
7:30 PM, Wednesday, January 18, 2017 at ArtsLab Black Box Theatre
2:30 PM, Sunday, January 22, 2017 at Rhinehart Music Center, IPFW
Mozart Quartet in F Major for Oboe, Violin, Viola und Cello, K. 370 (368b)
Stravinsky Suite Italienne for Cello and Piano
Both Mozart and Stravinsky were musical pioneers, intensely interested in dramatic narrative in their works. Stravinsky had a strong interest in the music of Mozart and from this enduring connection flowed works of great beauty. This program explores two musical counterparts, separated by centuries.

Dahl Allegro and Arioso for Wind Quintet
Villa Lobos Quinteto em forma de Choros for Wind Quintet
Schumann Quintet for Piano, Two Violins, Viola, and Cello, Op. 44
One of Schumann’s finest works, the Piano Quintet is brilliant and extroverted, melodic and truly captivating. This was the work that established Schumann’s name among the great composers.

Dvořák String Quartet No. 12 in F major, Op. 96 “American”
Written in the Czech community of Spillville, Iowa during the summer of 1893, Dvořák sketched his quartet in three days, and it was completed in just under two weeks. "When I wrote this quartet...I wanted to write something for once that was very melodious and straightforward, and dear Papa Haydn kept appearing before my eyes, and that is why it all turned out so simply. And it’s good that it did."
