Chamber Music at Spivey Hall

For Atlanta Chamber Players annual concert at the renowned Spivey Hall, we will spotlight quartets from three nationalities and three centuries. ACP is excited to commission Polish composer/violinist Piotr Szewczyk to write a quartet for our group. Szewczyk’s music is familiar to Atlanta audiences and highly regarded by followers of the Rapido Composition Contest, as his entry was twice selected in anonymous judging as Southeast Finalist. His 2013 world premiere includes clarinet in the quartet and addresses the perfect combinations of a particular musical taste or flavor that a person experiences as a “bliss point.” Bohemian composer Bohuslav Martinu’s first piano quartet dates from 1942 and features his characteristic directness, rhythmic athleticism. Closing the program is the German master Johannes Brahms’ C minor piano quartet, which was premiered in 1875 but upon which Brahms labored for some 20 years. This romantic masterpiece combines the stormy drama of youth with the technical prowess of a mature composer. In addition to featuring some of Brahms’ most personal and powerful music, this work has been a favorite of ACP musicians through the decades. Tickets are $30. Visit to purchase.
