The Delaware County Symphony (DCS)presents the third of its Chamber Concert Series on Sunday February 8, 2015 at 3 p.m. in the Meagher Theatre of the Thomas A Bruder, Jr. Life Center at Neumann University, Aston, Pa.
The February chamber concert opens with Jennifer Flam, flute, Michael Berton, cello and DCS Music Director Tim Ribchester, piano, performing Bohuslav Martinu’s Trio for Flute, Cello, and Piano. Martinu is one of the greatest Czech composers of his generation and internationally known for his concerti and chamber music. His work tends to command attention from its opening bars. Martinu offers a rhythmically vital and singing style that recalls the genius of both Antonín Dvořák and Igor Stravinsky.
The concert continues with August Klughardt’s Wind Quintet, Op 79 featuring Jennifer Flam, flute. Kristin Bray, oboe, Lynn Thomas, clarinet, Alex Bancer, bassoon. Rebecca King, horn. The concert concludes with Johann Sebastian Bach’s energetic and lively masterpiece Brandenburg Concerto No.4 a quintessential example of the High Baroque. This composition features Jennifer Flam and Barbara Cohen, flutes, Jeremy Desiderio and Lisa Roberts, violins, Barbara Ostroff, viola and Arnold Ostroff, piano.
Chamber program commentary will be provided by Tim Ribchester, Music Director Delaware County Symphony.
