Franz Schubert
String Trio in B-flat major, D. 471

Anton Bruckner
String Quintet in F major, WAB 112

Featured Musicians

Jennifer Frautschi & Yura Lee, violins
Marcus Thompson & Carol Rodland, violas
Clancy Newman, cello

The violin immediately plunges into the first theme of Schubert’s String Trio in B-flat major, D. 471 with a lighthearted melody reminiscent of Mozart. This single-movement piece embraces the spirit of true classicism throughout before sweeping to a gentle close.

Bruckner’s symphonic leanings burst out of the chamber music canvas in his String Quintet in F major. This thematically and harmonic complex work—which won Bruckner a diamond pin from the quintet’s dedicatee, Duke Max Emanuel of Bavaria—provides a rare opportunity to hear the composer in an intimate setting.

Boston Chamber Music Orchestra Morning Light Concert

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Piano Quartet No. 1 in G minor, K. 478

Maurice Ravel
Piano Trio in A minor

Featured Musicians

Ayano Ninomiya, violin
Marcus Thompson, viola
Clancy Newman, cello
Max Levinson, piano

Disregarding the Viennese musical conventions of his time, Mozart brought forth the piano as an equal partner to the strings in his Piano Quartet No. 1 in G minor. This innovation amplified the piece’s thematic possibilities, making the quartet an especially delightful demonstration of Mozartian brilliance.

Written at the onset of the Great War, Ravel’s Piano Trio in A minor was written directly before the composer attempted—unsuccessfully—to enlist, and as such straddles the patriotic Frenchman’s pre and post-war output.

Boston Chamber Music Orchestra Concert- Britten & Beethoven

Benjamin Britten
Phantasy Quartet for oboe, violin, viola and cello

Ludwig van Beethoven
String Quintet in C major, Op. 29


Featured Musicians

Peggy Pearson, oboe
Ayano Ninomiya & Yonah Zur, violins
Marcus Thompson & Deanna Badizadegan, violas
Clancy Newman, cello

A phantasy is a short piece of music that is written in the spirit of spontaneity and freedom, two qualities which are evident in Britten’s Phantasy Quartet for oboe and string trio. Simultaneously, the nineteen year-old Britten achieves an impressive matureness of expression in this twelve-minute jaunt around the composer’s imagination.

High and low string voices whirl tumultuously in the final movement of Beethoven’s only original and full-length String Quintet in C major, which is appropriately nicknamed “The Storm.”
