Notes from ACMC Artistic Director Michelle Schumann
What’s great about it: The country’s most renowned and influential chamber music society? What’s not great about it?! It will be a thrill to hear New York’s finest chamber musicians in Austin’s own Bates Recital Hall… an amazing and unique treat to close our eyes and hear the sounds of Lincoln Center.
Why you should go: Our festival often leans heavily on the repertoire of string quartets and piano trios, but this concert is lovingly different. In this concert, we’ll get to experience the most quintessential repertoire written for a quintet of wind players plus piano, by Beethoven, Françaix, Ligeti, Poulenc and Reicha. The sounds, textures, rhythms, and colors will present unexpected and rare delights that you will not want to miss!
You’ll love it if you love: The best of the best presenting sonic surprises and unexpected delights!
