Chicago Chamber Musicians' season-long tribute to the 100th anniversary of Benjamin Britten's birth continues with A Musicians' Renaissance, featuring early Baroque works that inspired the famed British composer and a pair of more modern pieces. The concert kicks off with a trio of works from the 1600s by Biber, Speer and Bertali, all scored for two violins, trombone and continuo. The performance from the ensemble and its esteemed guest artists continues with Robert Fuchs' 1913 clarinet quintet and builds to a finale with Mendelssohn's 1845 Piano Trio No. 2 in C minor.

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.
