Join us Sunday from 4 to 6 pm for a varied program, with lots of American music - ranging from Gershwin to Jerry Lee Lewis! Members of the Chicago Symphony Brass, and violinist Rachel Barton Pine, are among the performers in a program recorded at Wolf Trap, America's National Park for the Performing Arts.
BACH: arr. Fred MILLS: Toccata in C Major, BWV 564 (CSO Brass)
Join us to hear a chamber music concert recorded live at the Wolf Trap Performing Arts Center. We'll hear a new work by American-born and Curtis-trained composer Mohammed Fairouz. Violinist Rachel Barton Pine will play his Sonata for Solo Violin.
Also on the program is pianist Joyce Yang playing Lowell Liebermann's Gargoyles.
Beethoven's Grosse Fuge, despite being misunderstood and under-appreciated for years, has earned a place of its own in the chamber music repertoire. Originally the final movement of his Op. 130 String Quartet in B-flat, Beethoven wrote another finale for that quartet, and published the Great Fugue separately, at least in part because of the enormous demands the work placed on performers.
WRTI takes you to one of the world's most-respected chamber music festivals at Wolf Trap in Vienna, Virginia. It's music by Handel, Corelli, William Boyce, and Mozart's Quartet in B-flat, K. 458 "The Hunt," featuring the American String Quartet. Join us on Sunday, September 9th, 4 to 5 pm.
