A group of chamber players from A Far Cry Orchestra will explore the rich world of string chamber music for sextet and octet. From Boccherini’s first experiments with the form to Mozart’s game-changing 2 viola quintets, via Schubert to Brahms and Tchaikovsky who pull out all the stops with the sextet. Journey through this evolution and a discussion of chamber music, its expansion beyond the string quartet, and a taste of this deliciously full-bodied repertoire.
This course is part of the True North Music Series.
