In addition to participating in smaller chamber music ensembles, every Thursday evening, a few LGSO players have been meeting on zoom to discuss various topics and stay connected with music and each other. This week, we’ve decided to open up this forum to our audience as well. The topic: exploring chamber music!
Music Director David Anderson, Concertmaster Lisa Gauslow, Principal Horn Liz Ehlert, Pianist/Violinist Bethany Hartlaub, and other musicians will talk about this exciting and important branch of music. Beethoven’s nine symphonies are incredible pieces of music, but did you know he also has 17 string quartets? Brahms composed four symphonies, but he also wrote a wide range of music for ensembles sizes of two to six players. Most of the same composers that LGSO audiences hear at symphonic concerts have also showcased their expert compositional craftsmanship in their work for smaller chamber ensembles.
Please join this discussion and learn why musicians LOVE playing chamber music. In addition, we’ll talk about what some of the ensembles are playing right now and possible in-person and livestreaming performances that will happen in the future.
