Chamber Music: A Journey Through the Mind of a Composer

Over the past two seasons, Carolyn and I have had the honor to underwrite the pre-concert chamber music performances by ATL Symphony Musicians at Symphony Hall.  There are several reasons we think it crucial that audiences experience our superb Orchestra Musicians performing this repertoire.  When great composers write for intimate ensembles, they are often inspired to embark upon musical journeys only hinted at in their large orchestral pieces.  Works like the late Beethoven String Quartets and the Schubert C Major String Quintet provide a unique and awe-inspiring window into their creative genius.
How much more fulfilling is the experience when world-class Musicians perform this repertoire!  And not just world-class Musicians, but long-standing colleagues who have had the benefit of years and years of collaboration.  Our Musicians tell me, time and time again, that their orchestral collaborations inform their chamber performances.  And the converse is true, as well.
Carolyn and I look forward to the day when these treasured chamber performances will return to the stage of Symphony Hall.  Until then, thank-you for supporting these great artists, and the music they share with us.
