CCM's final Signature Series concert captures the apt description of chamber music - "a musical conversation amongst friends." Beethoven's youthful Sextet, featuring pairs of clarinets, horns, and bassoons, is full of classical gestures, and abounds with charming, jesting dialogue among the performers. Rheinberger, in his own time, ranked in stature with Brahms and Wagner. His radiant Nonet brims with vibrant melodies that define chamber music's most intimate and passionate qualities. Dvorak's magnificent Piano Quintet, a chamber music masterpiece, brings the majesty of the grand piano into the conversation. From the opening passage, the ensemble converses in fluid, interwoven passages, laced with vitality.
