Beethoven & Mozart
Mozart - Quintet for Piano and Winds in E flat, K. 452
Beethoven - Quintet in E flat for piano and winds, Opus 16
Tao Lin - Piano, Erika Yamada - Oboe, Paul Green - Clarinet, Janet Harris - Bassoon, and TBA - Horn
Experience two of the monumental works of chamber music for piano and winds by the great masters. Both in the key of E flat major, Mozart’s Quintet was completed in 1784. He wrote to his father that "I myself consider it to be the best thing I have written in my life." Beethoven’s Quintet, completed in 1796, is alleged to be inspired by Mozart's Quintet. It is a wonderful example of Beethoven at his best—beautiful sonorities with an almost perfect integration of all the instruments.

A dynamic program featuring Pianist Lindsay Garritson and Percussionist Ian Rosenbaum
This concert explores the relationship between the vibrant rhythms and poetic lyricism of the marimba and piano performed by two amazing virtuoso instrumentalists. A rare and unique pairing of two colorful instruments, the exciting duo of Garritson and Rosenbaum unleash the potential of musical possibilities ranging from fun ragtime to selections of both dynamic and ethereal beauty. Most exciting on the program is the world premiere of a work by Polina Nazaykinskaya, one of the most sought-after young composers today commissioned just for this occasion. Her music has been praised for its beauty of sound and folk influence from her native Russia, a combination which translates stunningly to the marimba and piano. This is sure to be an innovative and stirring program!

Trio: The Great Love Triangle of the Romantic Era - Brahms and the Schumanns
Piano Trio No. 3 in G Minor by Robert Schumann
"Andante" from Piano Trio in G Minor by Clara Wieck Schumann
Piano Trio No. 2 in C Major by Johannes Brahms
Catherine Lan - Piano, Aleksandr Zhuk - Violin, Ashley Garritson - Cello
The exuberant passion and soaring lyricism that characterizes the three trios by the two Schumanns and Brahms brings to life the story of the greatest love triangle in music. While three outstanding members of the Atlantic Classical Orchestra perform the music, Dr. Marie Jureit-Beamish, Professor Emerita of Music from Principia College, narrates and weaves together the most famous love story of the Romantic era—that of renowned composer Robert Schumann (1810-1856) and his wife, virtuoso pianist and composer Clara Wieck Schumann (1819-1996). At age 21 the dashing young composer, Johannes Brahms (1833-1897), is welcomed wholeheartedly into the Schumann home when he comes to Robert for approval and support of his fledgling career. The mutual admiration for one another flowers into deep friendships that endure long past the untimely passing of Robert in 1856 ... and sustains Clara and Johannes for the next forty years while each pursues their careers in honor of Robert.
