Chamber music is often described as bringing together the best of both worlds. It allows each individual player to have an artistic voice while also having the joy of collaborative music-making. This intimate setting creates a musical experience far greater than the simple sum of the parts. Since 1987, the CCO has proudly presented a concert series devoted entirely to chamber music and we hope youll join us for these programs that celebrate music that moves us.
The Glière is a charming work, performed far too rarely, and the Nielsen has a well-earned place of distinction in the repertoire for how it vividly demonstrates how well these instruments work together. Haydn has been dubbed the Father of the Symphony, but could just as easily be called the Father of the String Quartet as well. Well feature a wonderful example of how Haydn revolutionized the string quartet genre and created a model that inspired countless composers that followed.
