The tradition of Sunday afternoon musicales continues as the spirited ArtsAhimsa ensemble returns for its ninth season with chamber works from the musical circle of Antonín Dvořák, exploring themes and variations originating from New York, Prague, and Vienna. The richly varied repertoire – ranging from solo instrument to quintet – will include Dvořák’s inventive Humoresques Opus 101 nos. 1 and 7 (the latter arranged for violin and piano by Kreisler); selections from Dvořák’s “Dumky” Trio; the rarely heard Dvořák String Quartet Opus 9 in F Minor; plus the Piano Quintet in F Minor, Opus 34, composed by Dvořák’s mentor, Johannes Brahms.
Organized by violinist Laura Jean Goldberg, the performance features musicians Lilit Gampel, Jessica Troy, Ted Ackerman, Anna Royzman, and Moshe Knoll as well as young talents from The Chamber Music Center of New York. After the concert, meet the artists and visit the Dvořák Room.
