This is a Groupmuse Night Out

Explore the wider world of music outside Groupmuse with exclusive discounts to local concerts.

Our friends at Aspect Chamber Music Series have once again invited our Groupmuse community to a fantastic evening of Night Out programming, this time featuring the works of Brahms and Mendelssohn. As is the wonderful practice of Aspect Chamber Music events, this program will be accompanied by an illustrated talk, this time with Swedish pianist and music scholar Per Tengstrand. Tickets to this program, a steal at $20 for Groupmuse members, also include complimentary wine.

More about this program:

Brahms and Mendelssohn both wrote impressive works for the grand concert hall, but their chamber works take us into their secret hearts. When Brahms began work on his C minor Quartet, he was still struggling with the impact of his mentor Robert Schumann’s final descent into madness, and with his intense but complicated feelings for Schumann’s widow Clara. By turns stormy, achingly tender, and haunted, this work sounds very like the lonely cry of a wounded soul. Mendelssohn’s F minor Quartet was composed in stunned grief after the shockingly premature death of his beloved sister Fanny. If at times it seems close to breaking point, that may be a simple statement of fact: Mendelssohn himself died just two months after finishing it. But at its heart is a song of pure love, perhaps the tenderest he ever composed.
