    The concert experience in 1810 was very different from today. With a variety of performers, single movements, opera excerpts, virtuosic showpieces and lovely melodies, all on one concert, it was truly a feast for the audience. Here we offer our take on that model, with works ranging from Mozart to the 21st century.

    Miró Quartet

    The Miró Quartet pays homage to pioneers of chamber music in America by recreating this program of the famed Kneisel Quartet at the Schubert Club during the Quartet’s 25th anniversary season in 1910. While named for violinist Franz Kneisel, most of their programs featured a solo cello piece performed by Alwin Schroeder.

    Composers and performers have always sought instruments that enlarge sonic and expressive possibilities, and instrument makers have responded, making instruments capable of greater power and finesse. This program allows you to hear the step from harpsichord to piano, from natural horn to the modern horn, as well as the introduction of the metronome in Beethoven’s music, where the composer establishes a greater power over the performer by dictating with specificity how fast or slow the music should be performed.
