Chamber Music Course
6/9/2009 - 7/28/2009, Tuesday 10:00 AM - 12:30 PM
This course celebrates chamber music other than the oft-studied string quartet and solo keyboard repertoire. We will examine the dynamics of various groupings and the evolution of form from the classical era to the explosion of new possibilities in the post-romantic era. Works include (but are not limited to): Haydn trios, Mozart string quintets, Beethoven trios (including the “Archduke”), Schubert trios, Brahms quintets and sextets, and a look at the duo sonata (keyboard and solo instrument) as a genre.
