Boston Artists Ensemble: (more) Art of the String Quintet

Last year audiences loved starting the new year with a pair of “symphonies for the living room” — works of explosive power and profound refinement. On January 4, Art of the String Quintet begins 2019, with two more splendid string quintets with you: Mozart’s late operatic masterpiece in D and Dvorak’s tuneful quintet in E flat. Written in the US, this “American Quintet” is based partly on native and African American themes.

Boston Artists Ensemble: Trio of Trios

Trio of Trios, presented November 30, brings you two of the most perfect and beloved piano trios of all time. Schubert’s late B-flat trio, written in the last year of his life, mirrors the composer’s shifting moods and generous spirit. The Mendelssohn D Minor trio, inspired by the Schubert, will sweep you into the composer’s romantic sound world. A new trio by Judith Weir based on the hymn O Viridissima Virga (O greenest branch) by the medieval mystic nun and composer Hildegard von Bingen, completes our program.
