Delight & Drama, a program of Romantic works for piano, is the third and final concert in the 2022-2023 series featuring the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center at The Purchase PAC.
Four-hand piano pieces bring musicians as close as they can get to the ultimate in collegial music-making; the piano trio generates all the excitement and passion of an entire orchestra.
Arensky and Brahms mine the full range of these two genres in quintessential Russian and Viennese styles. The evening begins with the wonder of childhood and ends with Brahms at the height of his powers: delight and drama.
