THE TITANS: SCHUMANN AND BRAHMS PIANO QUINTETS
Great Barrington, 6 p.m.
Close Encounters With Music launches new season with two works that take us to the pinnacle of chamber music in a pairing of Brahms’s Piano Quintet in F minor, Op. 34 with that of his champion, and originator of the new genre, Robert Schumann’s breakthrough Piano Quintet. Combining the piano and the string quartet had never been tried, but in the space of only a few weeks in 1842, Schumann wrote the legendary piece that influenced countless followers. Both quintets are on the short list of masterworks—symphonic in scale, potent, flashy, and bursting with harmonic and melodic opulence and rhythmic variety. Soyeon Kate Lee, piano; Irina Muresanu and Peter Zazofsky, violin; Michael Strauss, viola; Yehuda Hanani, cello $50 orchestra/$27 balcony/$15 students http://www.cewm.org for more details
