The New York Chamber Music Meetup Message Board › $20 CMS Tix: Metamorphosen on Friday, Feb 22 @7:30PM
New York, NY
CMS is offering members of the Chamber Music Meetup $20 tickets for their terrific Friday, February 22, 2013 concert, Metamorphosen. This is NOT a Meetup event for the group: rather, I am just forwarding the special discount for your enjoyment. Hope many of you will be able to take advantage of this great deal!!
Description and program are as follows:
As WWII drew to its close, Strauss felt he was seeing not only the fall of Germany, but the fall of civilization, and poured his deeply felt emotions into the intensely wrought Metamorphosen. Opening the program is Erwin Schulhoff’s probing and unsettled Sextet, written between the two world wars. More than 150 years earlier, Mozart wrote his Sinfonia Concertante, here heard in a metamorphosed version itself, as a string sextet.
