Chamber Music Society closes out its annual concert series at the Purchase PAC with a delightful program of string trios and sextets by Bach, Haydn, Schubert, Strauss, and Tchaikovsky.

After beginning with Bach, who used six voices to compose his fugue-on-demand for Frederick the Great, the group splits for Classical and Romantic string trios, before re-combining in Strauss’s Sextet from Capriccio and Tchaikovsky’s blockbuster “Souvenir de Florence.”

Bach “Ricercar a 6” from Musical Offering, BWV 1079 (1747)

Haydn Trio in G major for Violin, Viola, and Cello, Hob. XVI:40, Op. 53, No. 1 (Before 1784)

Schubert Trio in B-flat major for Violin, Viola, and Cello, D. 581 (1817)

Strauss Sextet for Strings from Capriccio, Op. 85 (1940-41, arr. 1943)

Tchaikovsky Sextet for Two Violins, Two Violas, and Two Cellos, Op. 70, “Souvenir de Florence” (1890; rev. 1891-92)

PAUL HUANG, Violin
DANBI UM, Violin
MATTHEW LIPMAN, Viola
TIMOTHY RIDOUT, Viola
