Chamber Music Northwest

BRETT CAMPBELL
8 pm Wednesday-Thursday, Saturday and Monday, July 9-10, 12, 14. Multiple venues., Wednesday July 09 | $10-$50. Event at Portland Art Museum free.


 

[CLASSICAL] Wednesday's first Club Concert brings the Chamber Music Northwest festival some much-needed young blood (violinist Bella Hristova, pianist Dan Schlosberg, clarinetist Ashley William Smith, bassist Samuel Suggs) to play music by Suggs, 2012 Pulitzer winner David Lang, Ravel and covers of Regina Spektor, Sinatra and more. On Thursday, CMNW veterans, led by the superb singer Sasha Cooke, perform music by J.S. Bach, Mozart, Schubert and the distinguished American composer John Harbison, before playing Schubert's famous (and fabulous) quintet based on his song about a fish. On Saturday, one of the world's most celebrated chamber champs, the Emerson Quartet, bring their new cellist for another Schubert masterpiece, his piercing "Death and the Maiden" Quartet, plus Shostakovich's final, death-obsessed final string quartet. Sunday's Emerson show featuring music by Beethoven and Mozart is sold out, but tickets remain for Monday's concert of larger scale music by Wagner, Schoenberg and Hindemith, plus Prokofiev's sonata for two violins. Tuesday's annual free concert, featuring the award-winning young Dover Quartet, includes French music (to coincide with the museum's exhibit), including Debussy's sublime quartet.
