Starting Sunday October 20, In Concert With CMS, a new series created in partnership with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, will begin airing weekly on the ALL ARTS broadcast channel. The first season of eight episodes features pieces by Mozart, Brahms, Bach, Dvořák, Kreisler, Debussy, Mendelssohn, Rimsky-Korsakov, Bartók, Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Barber, Schumann, Chausson, and Ravel. All episodes will also be available to stream nationally on the free ALL ARTS app and allarts.org.
Episode Lineup and Airdates:
- In Concert With CMS: Mozart and Brahms – Enjoy the D Major Flute Quartet by Mozart. You’ll hear as Mozart wonderfully treats the flute like a first violin, letting it float along across three relaxed movements. Following that, enjoy Johannes Brahms’s first Piano Quartet in G Minor. In typical Brahms fashion, this piece features a complex display of musicality.
- Broadcast Premiere: Sunday, October 20 at 9 a.m., 2 p.m. & 7 p.m.
- In Concert With CMS: Mozart and Dvořák – This episode features two great works of chamber music for strings. The first is Mozart’s brooding C Minor String Quintet. This minor-key work is full of melancholy, but eventually gives way to an explosive major-key finale. Then, enjoy Dvořák’s splendid A Major String Sextet. This piece features the folk song textures that are an integral part of Dvořák’s musical toolkit.
- Broadcast Premiere: Sunday, October 27 at 9 a.m., 2 p.m. & 7 p.m.
- In Concert With CMS: Kreisler and Mendelssohn – This episode features back-to-back quartets. The first is Kreisler’s four-movement A Minor String Quartet, a tribute to the composer’s birthplace of Vienna. Following that, you’ll hear Mendelssohn’s C Minor Piano Quartet. This four-movement work was composed when Mendelssohn was only 13 years old, and already contains the composer’s melodicism and romanticism.
- Broadcast Premiere: Sunday, November 3 at 9 a.m., 2 p.m. & 7 p.m.
- In Concert With CMS: Rimsky-Korsakov and Bartók – Opens with Rimsky-Korsakov’s thrilling Quintet for Piano and Winds in B-Flat Major. You’ll hear Beethoven-esque textures in the first movement and a glorious rondo finale. After that, it’s four hands, one piano, and Bartók’s The Miraculous Mandarin. This frenetic piano reduction of Bartók’s orchestral score is a true feat of keyboard athleticism.
- Broadcast Premiere: Sunday, November 10 at 9 a.m., 2 p.m. & 7 p.m.
- In Concert With CMS: Prokofiev and Shostakovich – You’ll hear a lovely conversation between violin and piano with Prokofiev’s Second Violin Sonata in D Major. Following that is a different flavor of Russian chamber music: the passionate and ironic Piano Trio in E Minor from Dmitri Shostakovich, dedicated to the composer’s late friend Ivan Sollertinsky.
- Broadcast Premiere: Sunday, November 17 at 9 a.m., 2 p.m. & 7 p.m.
- In Concert With CMS: Barber and Schumann – Two divine sonatas await you on this episode. First up is Barber’s moody and lyrical cello sonata, completed when the composer was only 22 years old. You’ll then hear Schumann’s second violin sonata. Composed in a burst of creative energy over the course of three weeks, Schumann’s sonata is virtuosic, full of passion, and a joy to hear.
- Broadcast Premiere: Sunday, November 24 at 9 a.m., 2 p.m. & 7 p.m.
- In Concert With CMS: Bach and Chausson – A program of musical fantasy and romance awaits you on this episode. First up is Bach’s Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue, a virtuosic work for solo keyboard featuring a flurry of ominous and surprising harmonies. Following that is Chausson’s work of grand romanticism, his Concerto in D Major for Violin, Piano, and String Quartet.
- Broadcast Premiere: Sunday, December 1 at 9 a.m., 2 p.m. & 7 p.m.
- In Concert With CMS: Ravel and Debussy – This episode opens with Ravel’s sublime String Quartet in F Major. The composer’s use of sound coloration is a singular treat. Following that, you’ll hear Brahms’s A Minor Trio for Clarinet, Cello, and Piano. Brahms takes full advantage of the somber sound of both clarinet and cello to create a poignant emotional journey.
- Broadcast Premiere: Sunday, December 8 at 9 a.m., 2 p.m. & 7 p.m.
