The Chamber Music Society at Yale presents the Nash Ensemble, one of Britain’s finest and most adventurous chamber groups, at 8:00 pm on Tuesday, April 7 in Morse Recital Hall in Sprague Memorial Hall. The ensemble, which performs music for widely varied combinations of its twelve-person roster, will perform music for piano, clarinet, horn, and strings. The program in Sprague hall includes Vaughan Williams’s Quintet for clarinet, horn, piano, violin, and cello in D major (1898); Paul Dukas’s Vilanelle for horn and piano; Schumann’s quirky Märchenerzählungen (Fairy Tales) for clarinet, viola, and piano, Op. 132; and perhaps the best-known work of the evening, Dvorák’s Piano Quartet in E-flat Major, Op. 87. The performers will be Ian Brown, piano; Richard Hosford, clarinet; Richard Watkins, horn; Marianne Thorsen, violin, James Boyd, viola; and Paul Watkins, cello.
Tickets are $27-$34, students $14. For more information, visit the Yale School of Music’s new website, music.yale.edu, or call 203 432-4158. MORE
