The program entitled “Celebrating an Era – Chamber Music from the 19th and 20th century” includes Ernst Dohnányi’s Serenade for String Trio, Robert Schumann’s Piano Quartet in E-flat major, and Camille Saint-Saëns’ Élégie for Violin and Piano.
The works on this program were composed between 1842-1920 and represent an era when many beautiful chamber music pieces were created. The program selections were written before, during and after David Hochstein’s lifetime – and one was composed the year the Hochstein School was established.
The Sibley Chamber Players brings together musicians from Eastman, Hochstein, and the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra to collaborate on chamber music projects and to perform throughout the community. The ensemble is named in honor of Emily Sibley Watson and the Sibley family for their role in supporting fine art and music in Rochester and in celebration of the connections that exist today between the institutions they helped to establish and support.
The Hochstein School’s free lunchtime “brown bag” Live from Hochstein concert series takes place in the Hochstein Performance Hall and is broadcast live on WXXI Classical 91.5/ 90.3 FM, hosted by Classical 91.5’s Mona Seghatoleslami.
