Musical Masterworks is delighted to welcome back a parade of our esteemed internationally acclaimed artists, along with a handful of exciting Old Lyme debuts on Saturday, February 9th at 5:00 pm and on Sunday, February 10th at 3:00 pm. We are delighted to present the Musical Masterworks debut of violist Ettore Causa, alongside beloved MM veteran violinists Jesse Mills and Jennifer Frautschi, violist Nicholas Cords, and cellist Wilhelmina Smith.
This program features two masterpieces for string sextet: Arnold Schoenberg’s uber-romantic Transfigured Night, based on the poignant poem bearing that title by Richard Dehmel; and Johannes Brahms’s exquisite G Major Sextet. The concert will begin with a charming and virtuosic duo for two cellos by the French Baroque-era composer, Jean-Baptiste Barrière.
Join Artistic Director, Edward Arron, one hour before each concert for a pre-concert talk about the lives of these composers.
