“Merriam-Webster defines exuberance as “the quality of being joyously unrestrained or enthusiastic,” and never in a concert of chamber music can this sentiment apply more! You’ll hear three unique masterpieces from three of the world’s greatest composers, each in the prime of their compositional powers: Edvard Grieg, Franz Schubert, and Robert Schumann!

The concert begins with the Allegro from Schubert’s stunning String Trio in Bb, D471, followed by another tour de force, Grieg’s Sonata for Violin and Piano in C Minor! The concert ends with Schumann’s astonishing Piano Quintet in Eb, Opus 44.

Thanks to all who attended Concert Four!
