The Darkness and Light of Johannes Brahms
Sunday, April 19, 2015
at the George Washington Masonic National Memorial
Music Director David Teie conducts a favorite piece of chamber music that he has adapted for the full resources of ECO. This concert provides our audience a rare opportunity to compare the original (which David will perform with his colleagues on the Recital Series concert of March 22) with his expanded version, and also to compare Brahms' early First Serenade with his Second, which ECO performed last season.
Brahms: Piano Quartet in C Minor op.60, orchestrated by Teie -- world premiere
Brahms: Serenade No. 1 in D Major
The next ECO at the Lyceum recital will be on Sunday, March 22, 2015 at 3:00 PM. Kathryn Brake, Jane Bowyer Stewart, Beth Dunkel, and David Teie will be presenting a recital they have titled "Two Plus One - Plus One." The afternoon will begin with Brahms' Sonata in E Minor for cello and piano and conclude with Brahms' Piano Quartet in C Minor, op. 60 performed in the original instrumentation.
Our final ECO at the Lyceum recital is May 3, 2015. Join us at 3:00 PM for an afternoon of music by Franz Schubert. John Hughes, Mahoko Eguchi, Rachel Young, Paul DeNola, and Jiyoung Oh will be performing Schubert's Sonata in A minor for Viola and Piano, D. 821 "Arpeggione" and Quintet in A major for Piano and Strings, D. 667 "Trout."
