Three grand masterpieces of chamber music will be performed  by six of the country's finest artists featuring Metropolitan Opera Orchestra French hornist Brad Gemeinhardt, with violinists Laurie Smukler and Emily Smith, violist Marka Gustavsson, cellist Natasha Brofsky and pianist Robert McDonald. They will perform Brahms' Horn Trio in E-flat major, Op. 40, Schumann's Piano Quintet, and Haydn's String Quartet, Op. 77, No.2. These musicians hold faculty positions at the Curtis Institute of Music, Juilliard School, and New England Conservatory, and have performed with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, Mostly Mozart, the Lincoln Center Chamber Music Society, and WQXR’s Showcase Concerts.
"Violinist Laurie Smukler has become a fixture at Capital City Concerts for her exquisite sound and moving interpretations, and because the friends she brings are the best you will hear anywhere! We are thrilled to have the extraordinary Curtis and Juilliard faculty pianist Robert McDonald for the first time this season!," said Capital City Concerts Artistic Director Karen Kevra. McDonald was the longtime recital partner of violinist Isaac Stern and was the gold medal winner at the Busoni International Piano Competition.
This concert is sponsored in part by Vermont State Employees Credit Union, Bill Herbst, registered representative with Equity Services, media sponsorship from Vermont Public Radio, and is part of Vermont Arts 2018-a project of the Vermont Arts Council.
