About Student Chamber Music at YSM

The Yale School of Music is unique in that all performance faculty coach chamber music, and all students are involved in chamber music for their entire tenure at the School. Ensembles come together each semester and receive weekly coachings from distinguished faculty and guest artists. Chamber groups often perform in the Lunchtime Chamber Music concerts, which take place at both Morse Recital Hall and the Center for British Art, and in the Vista series, in which performances are enhanced by spoken commentary on the music. Students also take part in the annual chamber music competition, whose winners are featured in an annual Chamber Music Society concert.

Peter Frankl performs music of Schubert and Debussy Dec. 12

Concert also features Ettore Causa, viola

The Horowitz Piano Series at the Yale School of Music presents a recital by Peter Frankl, hailed by Auditorium as “not a mere pianist, but a true artist.” The recital, which focuses on the music of Schubert and Debussy, takes place Wednesday, December 12 at 8 pm in Morse Recital Hall.

The concert opens with Schubert’s Sonata No. 9 in B major, D. 575, a work that was published only posthumously. Faculty colleague Ettore Causa will then join Frankl for Schubert’s “Arpeggione” Sonata in A minor, D. 821.

The second half of the concert is devoted to the music of Debussy, beginning with both sets of Images and concluding with Estampes. With its scales and rhythms inspired by the music of Asia and the Middle East, Estampes evokes images of faraway lands.

Morse Recital Hall is located in Sprague Memorial Hall at 470 College Street. This concert is part of the Horowitz Piano Series, which is directed by Boris Berman.

Tickets to this performance are $12–$22, $6–9 with student ID. MORE
