Chamber concert Saturday evening @ the Lichtenstein & more!
@ the Lichtenstein: Saturday June 7 Chamber Music Concert
You are invited to the Berkshire County debut of the Avery Ensemble, a Connecticut-based chamber group whose playing has been praised by the Boston Globe as “supercharged, clear-headed, yet soulful.”
The free (donations accepted) concert Saturday night features Czech composer Bohuslav Martinu’s astounding Piano Quartet, Maurice Ravel’s deliciously spicy Sonata for violin and cello, Aaron Copland’s entertaining and light-hearted Rodeo, Samuel Barber’s passionate, invigorating and melodic Sonata for Cello and Piano, and Paul Schoenfield’s Carolina Reveille for Piano Quartet.
The concert also marks the official announcement of their 2008-09 three concert series at the Lichtenstein Center for the Arts. Seating is limited, and reservations are suggested! Not to be missed!
