Classics in Concert on NPR

As part of their on-going Classics in Concert series, NPR is hosting five nights of chamber music videocast live from WQXR’s Greene Space in New York. You can read about the series at NPR here.

The series, which started April 4th, and is titled “Trout Week” in honor of Schubert’s “Trout” Quintet, will feature several pieces composed by women. On Wednesday (April 6), ETHEL will perform Julia Wolfe’s Early That Summer as well as works by Pamela Z, Anna Clyne, and Dohee Lee. And on Thursday (April 7) you an hear the JACK Quartet perform Missy Mazzoli’s Death Valley Junction.

In addition to the live video stream, NPR is also hosing a nightly chat room to discuss the music with fellow listeners. I encourage you to tune in and enjoy what are bound to be fantastic live performances!
