Florida Chamber Music Project presents Mozart & Smetana
May 6, 2018 @ 3:00 pm$25
The Florida Chamber Music Project is proud to celebrate its 5th year of providing a wonderful repertoire of chamber music for the Northeast Florida region. Although performances by small groups of musicians date back several thousand years, chamber music as we know it today reached great heights beginning in the early 1600s and continues to thrive in popularity in the 21st century. Often described as music performed in an intimate setting by an ensemble of friends for an audience of friends; chamber music lives on today through our musicians providing enjoyment for listeners of all ages. One of the factors contributing to the unique nature of these performances is the rich repertoire featuring one musician on a part. Within each composition, the technical skills and musical expression of each player contributes to an intimate musical conversation among friends.
May 6th will feature Mozart’s String Quartet in A Major, K. 464 and Smetana’s String Quartet No. 1 in E minor, “From My Life”.
The 2017-2018 season features popular clarinetist Peter Wright joining the Florida Chamber Music Project for music written for strings and clarinet performing Weber’s Quintet for Clarinet and Strings in B flat. Other concerts include Schubert’s famous Quintet for Piano and Stings, “The Trout”; a performance of Italian composers as part of The Italian Sojourn weekend experience; and the season concludes with the music of Mozart’s String Quintet No. 1 in c minor. Join the Florida Chamber Music Project for a remarkable fifth season of the finest chamber music at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall.
