Digital Encore: Evolving Ensembles

Monday, April 18, 2022, 12:00 PM ET at
Tickets start at $15.00

In a concert that literally grows before your eyes, CMS musicians explore the musical effects of expanding casts. Beginning with the leanest of ensembles, the string trio, we'll add a second violin and viola for one Mozart's iconic string quintets. And with the participation of a second cello, Brahms's Sextet will carpet Alice Tully Hall in lush sonorities, as delicious to the ear as is the richest food to the stomach.
