Three of these musicians (Elissa, Sharon, and Angela) are 3/4 of Ensemble Made in Canada. Doug McNabney, viola, was for years chairman of the Music School at McGill and long one of Canada's most famous musicians; Blair Lofgren is Principal Cellist of the Québec Symphony; and
Raphaël McNabney - Doug's son! - is bassist with the celebrated orchestra Les Violons du Roy.
This fabulous team performs one of Mendelssohn's great but lesser-played works (due to its instrumentation): The Sextet for that constellation of instruments. And a rare but fine work by the junior contemporary and friend of Beethoven, J.N. Hummel, the Quintet, Op. 87 for violin, viola, cello, bass, and piano. And a real rarity, the trio by Bernard Romberg (1767-1841) Trio in e, op 38 #1 - for viola, cello, and bass!
A starstudded assemblage of musicians in a rare but wonderful program, in short!
Cutoff is Thursday, April 4, 2019 4:59 pm EST unless it sells out earlier.
