Next Up in the MSO’s Ensemble Series: Piano Quintet
Concert Features Works of Two Important Romantic Period Composers
The next concert in the Mid-Atlantic Symphony Orchestra’s new Ensemble Series will be held on Saturday, February 11 at Epworth United Methodist Church in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware and on Sunday, February 12 at the Academy Art Museum in Easton, Maryland. The Ensemble Series concerts feature chamber music and jazz performed by members of the Mid-Atlantic Symphony Orchestra and special guest artists.
“The musicians that are featured for this concert are all principal strings of the MSO,” said MSO Principal Violinist and Concertmaster Kimberly McCollum. “We have Yuri Tomenko on viola, Jaques-Pierre Malan on cello, Chris Chlumsky on bass, and we are please to have as guest artist Woobin Park, who is on the music faculty at Washington College in Chestertown.”
The February concerts put the spotlight firmly on two works that perfectly represent classical music’s Romantic Era -- generally given by most music historians as the years between 1820 and 1900.
Composed in 1819, Franz Shubert’s Piano Quintet in A Major is also known as the “Trout Quintet”. The name comes from one of Schubert’s lied (song) works. This melodic work is instantly recognizable by music lovers and by many others – especially fans of the British comedy Waiting for God.
French composer Louise Farrenc composed her Piano Quintet No. 1 in A Minor in 1839 when she had already composed symphonies, choral works, works of chamber music, and numerous works for piano. This accomplished and honored composer also was a pianist of great renown.
