Philadelphia Chamber Music Society: Aizuri Quartet w/ Marcy Rosen, cello - For its livestreamed PCMS return, the Aizuri Quartet is joined by esteemed cellist Marcy Rosen for a performance of Schubert's String Quintet in C Major. Representing the peak of Schubert's instrumental oeuvre, the quintet is one of the most remarkable compositions in the entire repertoire of Romantic chamber music-it remains one of those musical enigmas whose mystery is only deepened by repeated hearings. Complementing the Schubert is a first half of Alberga and Dvořák. Of these works the Aizuri members write: "Eleanor Alberga was an amazing discovery for us. She's a prominent Jamaican, UK-based composer whose music we haven't heard much in the States. We thought she would be an excellent option for a contemporary European composer with a really compelling, substantial style. We also thought the Dvořák would be a nice way to retain the song element in the first half of our April 30 program (replacing our original songbook plans)." click here

No one writes love songs about this stuff. Islands of Contentment is a one-of-a-kind virtual show that transports small audiences to the characters through the power of Zoom. Each performance is unique to the audience, the actors, and which order the audience chooses. click here

Diverse and distanced, gorgeous and witty, liberating talent from Canada to Israel and all over the US, for Austen, Beethoven and musical theater fans all over the world.
