Masterworks

Thursday, August 15 at 7:30 PM

Hannaford Hall, 88 Bedford Street, Portland

Three masterfully crafted musical jewels are set in a single sparkling array, opening with one of the most popular chamber music works ever written. Prokofiev’s duo sonata is a tour de force showpiece, while the beautifully balanced, ingenious motifs and quicksilver color shifts of Schumann’s Piano Quartet are nothing short of revelatory.

Mozart Clarinet Quintet in A Major, K. 581 <listen>

Prokofiev Sonata for Two Violins in C Major, Op. 56 <listen>

Robert Schumann Piano Quartet in E-flat Major, Op. 47 <listen>
