Bringing Down the House | Chamber Music Society Returns
Fri. Apr. 15 at 10 p.m. on WKAR-HD 23.1 & STREAMING | The Chamber Music Society continues its new season with a whole host of pandemic-related challenges.
The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center continues its new season with a host of pandemic-related challenges, including reuniting wind players, sending a large group of artists on tour, and returning home to New York amidst a COVID resurgence.
As December approaches, CMS prepares for the 28th year of its eagerly anticipated holiday tradition, which did not take place in December 2020: presenting all of Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos to welcome in the holidays, first on tour and culminating in performances at Alice Tully Hall.
Twenty musicians travel to six cities over ten days, running into a host of setbacks, from inclement weather and travel delays to cataclysmic malfunctions.
“Bringing Down the House” is anchored by Mozart’s enduring “Gran Partita”, K. 361 as well as Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos No. 3 and 4.
