Bruch and Dvořák
Cocktail Hour

Enjoy two string quintets with a difference in this one-hour early evening concert of chamber music.

Orchestral musicians love to play chamber music together and when they do the combinations of instruments are limitless. This program presents two quintets for strings, each with a difference: Bruch adds a second viola to the standard string quartet and Dvořák adds a double bass. The rich, Romantic sounds of Bruch’s quintet are a relatively recent addition to the chamber music repertoire. A late work, it virtually disappeared, and only received its first public performance in 2008. If you love Bruch’s first violin concerto, you’ll enjoy discovering this quintet. Dvořák’s quintet has a youthful freshness, sometimes energetic, sometimes tranquil, but always dripping with gorgeous melodies. This is a concert that will send you into the night with a smile on your face.
