This riveting program juxtaposes two musical giants of Romanticism: Antonín Dvořák and Johannes Brahms. Contemporaries and friends, Dvořák and Brahms drew inspiration from each other, and it was to Brahms’s Gypsy-inspired Hungarian Dances that Dvořák turned for his own Slavonic Dances, which has been a sure-fire hit with audiences ever since its premiere. Brahms’s c minor Piano Trio—a work of searing intensity and epic proportions—is featured before intermission, while Dvořák’s Piano Quintet in A Major, one of the finest piano quintets in the repertoire, brings the program to a thrilling close. Joining Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and Music@Menlo Artistic Codirector pianist Wu Han for this program is a cohort of some of the most exciting young artists on the distinguished CMS roster: pianist Michael Brown, violinists Paul Huang and Chad Hoopes, violist Matthew Lipman, and cellist Dmitri Atapine.
