North Country Chamber Players, Dow Field Pavilion, Franconia, 4pm
Johannes Brahms spent some of the happiest and most prolific times of his life in a house he rented just outside of Baden Baden, during the summer months. Smitten with its natural beauty, he enthusiastically composed some of his most important pieces there, including, in the summer of 1864, the final version of his Piano Quintet in F Minor, which he infused with beautiful melodies, crisp rhythms, and dark summer clouds, quickly dispersed by fast jolly tunes. Playful and evocative fantasies, dreams, and lullabies by Britten, Golijov and Kenji Bunch will precede what is now considered Brahms’ most epic chamber work. Free – Donations Appreciated.
