Concert Program VIII

The 2021 festival season closes with a collection of programs anchored by the piano quintets of Robert Schumann, Johannes Brahms, and Antonín Dvořák. As delectable accompaniments to these three heady masterpieces, these programs offer beloved works of French Romanticism: music by Georges Bizet, Eugène Ysaÿe, and Gabriel Fauré, whose affecting First Violin Sonata represents one of the composer’s greatest accomplishments.
