Chamber music arguably offers greater freedom and diversity than any other musical genre. For composers it provides a focused testing ground for trying out new musical structures and for performers it presents opportunities in all aspects of ensemble playing: switching seamlessly between solo lead roles, equal polyphonic playing and harmonic accompaniment. Classical and romantic works sound excitingly modern and experimental; supposedly difficult new music becomes transparent and approachable. Celebrated soloists show themselves to be constructive team players; members of established ensembles demonstrate stupendous virtuosity. In extraordinarily organic, insightful ways the concerts in the Chamber Music subscription series bridge the gaps between tradition and avant-garde, between the usual templates of serious music and light music, between the most diverse styles and eras. These are seven musical goody bags filled to the seams.
