Spirits will soar throughout this very special evening, filled with transcendent sounds and unearthly beauty. A mystical medieval chant, Schumann’s gently atmospheric Romances, the profoundly complex spirituality of a trio by one of Russia’s foremost composers, all speak to how much we have missed making music together, and yearned to connect in the shared experience of live performance. Finally, with Brahms we reach the exhilarating heights of chamber music’s powerful intimacy, from its heroic opening to its fiery Gypsy Rondo finale.
