CHAMBER MUSIC SOCIETY OF LINCOLN CENTER

DELIGHT & DRAMA

March 23, 2023 | 7:30 PM

Four-hand piano pieces bring musicians as close as they can get to the ultimate in collegial music-making. The piano trio, with just one additional musician, generates all the excitement and passion of an entire orchestra. Romantics Brahms and Arensky mine the full range of these two genres to bring listeners an evening that begins with the wonder of childhood and ends with Brahms at the height of his dramatic powers.
