Reger Serenade, Op. 141a (1915)
Beethoven Serenade for String Trio in D Major, Op.25
We feature two wonderful Serenades by Beethoven and Reger. Though most serenades were written as concert works, they pay allegiance to their heritage as entertainment music played for the amusement and enjoyment of a party-going audience. These works are no exception. Though written more than a century apart, they share a buoyancy, lightness of spirit, and an appealing intimacy.

Violin, Leonid Sigal
Viola, Sandra Robbins
Flute, Christina Apelgren

Amy Beach String Quartet
Dvorák String Quartet No. 12, op. 96, American Quartet
This program features two distinctly American works. Amy Beach’s lyrical String Quartet marries Alaskan Inuit tunes with traditional Western techniques. Dvorák’s ever-popular American Quartet, written during his time in a Czech community in Spillville, Iowa, is redolent with the language and vernacular of folk song and spirituals—all wrapped up in Dvorak’s mastery of form and drama.

Schulhoff Duo for Violin and Cello (1925)
Ravel Sonata for Violin and Cello
Handel - Halvorsen Passacaglia for Violin and Cello
The combination of violin and cello has long inspired composers to fuse the best qualities of chamber music-making — like conversational, spontaneous interactions—with the best qualities of virtuoso soloists — pyrotechnic, full-throttle technical displays. This concert features three works that walk that line expertly. Both Schulhoff’s and Ravel’s works are colorist showpieces—illustrating the vast extent of what two great, and different, masters can achieve with a modest force of two.  Schulhoff’s work fuses 1920s avant-garde with jazz and folk elements, while Ravel’s Sonata, written in memory of Debussy, is lean, cool, and austere. Finally, a stunning, acrobatic arrangement of Handel’s Passacaglia is equal parts Halvorsen — himself a brilliant violinist, as it is the music of the great English Baroque composer.
