What's Interesting

  • After the premiere of the Quintet, Mozart professed it to be “the best thing I have written in my life.”
  • Beethoven’s Piano Trio sparked a heated and life-long rivalry with pianist Daniel Steibelt, which culminated in musical “duel” between the two composers.
  • With only two players, one on percussion the other on bassoon, Koshinski’s Pocket Grooves shrinks the ensemble but maximizes the fun.
  • Tickets are only $40. Want more? A subscription to all four Chamber Players concerts is just $136.
