Chamber Music Series

BMC Chamber Music Series — 2021-22 Season

Each year, the Brattleboro Music Center’s Chamber Music Series features artists and ensembles with international reputations, as well as gifted emerging young artists, performing chamber music of the highest quality.

Chamber Series: Jennifer Koh
November 5 @ 7:30 pm

Recognized for intense, commanding performances, delivered with dazzling virtuosity and technical assurance, violinist Jennifer Koh is a forward-thinking artist dedicated to exploring a broad and eclectic repertoire, while promoting diversity and inclusivity in classical music. She has expanded the contemporary violin repertoire through a wide range of commissioning projects, and has premiered more than 70 works written especially for her. Her quest for the new and unusual, sense of endless curiosity, and ability to lead and inspire a host of multidisciplinary collaborators, truly set her apart.

Chamber Series: Adam Golka
November 21 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

Polish-American pianist Adam Golka (born 1987) first performed all of Beethoven’s Piano Sonatas when he was 18 years-old, and he considers the 32 masterpieces to have been his saving grace during the Covid crisis. “The reason I can’t stay away from Beethoven is that he put himself through absolute hell in an attempt to marry the rawest expressions of his subconscious to the unattainable ideals of his mind. No other composer before or since has been willing to explore this internal warfare as deeply as he did, and I constantly feel that I’ll somehow redeem myself by surrendering to the fight which is at the core of performing his works.”

Chamber Series: Musicians From Marlboro
February 12, 2022 @ 2:00 pm – 4:30 pm

From Haydn’s characteristically classical Divertissement in G Major, Hob. IV:7 to a work for alto and double bass written by Marlboro’s 2016 composer-in-residence, Sofia Gubaidulina, and from the mixed winds and strings ensemble in Prokofiev’s Quintet, Op. 39 to Stravinsky’s Three Songs from Shakespeare and Brahms’s String Quintet in F Major, Op. 88, this program promises to be truly varied, with pieces chosen from some of the best Marlboro performances from the past five years.

Chamber Series: Musicians from Marlboro
March 25, 2022 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Works of Britten and Schubert shine in this program with equal intensity and tenderness. Schubert’s String Quartet, D. 87, written when he was only 16 years old, provides a youthful counterpoint to Britten’s String Quartet, No. 3, written within the final year of his life. The lyrical Auf dem Strom for tenor, horn, and piano offers a personal narrative of loss and memory that complements the Canticle’s public commemoration of the 1940 London Raids.
