CCM's final Signature Series concert captures the apt description of chamber music as "a musical conversation amongst friends." Beethoven's youthful Sextet, featuring pairs of clarinets, horns and bassoons, is full of classical gestures, and abounds with charming, jesting dialogue among the performers. Rheinberger, in his own time, ranked in stature with Brahms and Wagner. His radiant Nonet brims with vibrant melodies that define chamber music's most intimate and passionate qualities. Dvorak's magnificent Piano Quintet, a chamber music masterpiece, brings the majesty of the grand piano into the conversation. From the opening passage, the ensemble converses in fluid, interwoven passages, laced with vitality. Learn More

It was an exquisite performance, and the musicians were top-notch; I would see them again in a heartbeat. The Mahler and Mozart pieces they performed sounded wonderful, but the two contemporary compositions were discordant and, while the musicians themselves were excellent, the continuously clashing notes contained in the pieces were an assault to my ears ansd psyche. If these pieces hadn't been included, I would have rated this event at five stars, easily. Fortunately the concert wrapped up with a calm, harmonious Mozart piece, and we left feeling soothed and, quite literally, on a positive note.
