Unconventional Voices

  • Albright-Knox Art Gallery (map)

Historically, chamber music repertoire and programming has heavily favored certain instrument combinations, such as the string quartet and the piano trio. Fortunately, some composers also ventured beyond these well-trodden choices, creating exciting and innovative alternatives. We celebrate these with a program of unconventional instrument combinations, with works by Frank Bridge, Michael Haydn, Caroline Mallonée, Sergey Prokofiev, and Pulitzer Prize winner Paul Moravec.

Prokofiev Overture on Hebrew Themes, op. 34 for clarinet, string quartet, and piano
Michael Haydn Quartet in C, P. 115 for English horn, violin, cello, and bass
Caroline Mallonée Throwing Mountains for bass clarinet, cello, bass, and piano
Frank Bridge Lament for two violas
Paul Moravec Tempest Fantasy for clarinet, violin, cello, and piano

A reception with Paul Moravec, Caroline Mallonée, and the musicians will follow the performance.
