The Cleveland Chamber Music Society presents a winter-spring chamber music series as part of our 67th season, featuring four contrasting world-class chamber music ensembles. Each of these highly acclaimed performing artists represent the pinnacle of chamber music today.
The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center artists performing in our January 17, 2017 concert will be Pianist Alessio Bax, First Prize winner at the Leeds and Hamamatsu International Piano Competitions; Violinist Avi Kavafian, an Avery Fisher Prize recipient who has appeared at the White House on three occasions; Violinist/violist Yura Lee, virtuosic soloist and chamber musician, and cellist Paul Watkins, also a conductor and first music director of the English Chamber Orchestra.
The Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet, performing February 7, 2017, is the first permanently established wind quintet in the famous orchestra’s rich tradition of chamber music. They are living musical witnesses to the hugely productive and influential musical partnerships of the Berlin Philharmonic, and have enjoyed collaborations with every major conductor of their time. This preeminent wind quintet, founded in 1988, performs with four of its original members.
The Jerusalem Quartet, performing March 21, 2017, is one of today’s great young quartets, and is a regular and beloved guest on the world’s great concert stages. The ensemble has been especially well-received in North America, where it has performed in cities such as New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Cleveland, and Washington. BBC Music Magazine described them “as near to perfect as one can possibly find.”
The grammy-winning Takács Quartet, performing April 18, 2017, is unquestionably among the world’s premier ensembles. In 2012, Gramophone Magazine inducted the Takács into its Hall of Fame. They won the Chamber Music & Song award by the London Royal Philharmonic Society in 2011. The quartet was founded in 1975 and performs with two of its original members, Károly Schranz and András Fejér.
