Host

Chameleon resumes its 2023-2024 season with Seeking Syllables on Saturday, February 24, 8 PM at First Church in Boston. The program is a tour de force of expressive possibility and includes Felix Mendelssohn’s Lieder ohne Worte for cello and piano, Op. 109; Sebastian Currier’s Vocalissimus for soprano, flute, clarinet, violin, cello, piano and percussion; and Johannes BrahmsPiano Quintet in f minor, Op. 34.

A notorious perfectionist and restless spirit, Brahms was his own harshest critic, writing and rewriting his scores with the precision of a poet. His piano quintet underwent three major transformations on the way to becoming the sublime essay we know today. Similarly, Vocalissimus is a tour de force of expressive possibility, as Currier interprets – and reinterprets – a single poem through a prism of 18 different characters.

Tickets can be picked up at Will Call in the 30 minutes prior to the performance's start time. Seating is general admission.
