Chamber ensembles from around the globe have heeded Chamber Music Tulsa’s call for more than 50 years, joining the organization in its mission to enrich the community with educational and classical music productions. Like a puppet or a narcissistic seamstress, Trio Solisti pianist Jon Klibonoff finds himself on stage surrounded by strings as his violinist and cellist bandmates join him in a February performance that praises the works of composers Antonin Dvořák and Paul Moravec, the latter of whom penned the 2004 Pulitzer Prize–winning Tempest Fantasy specifically for the talented trio. In March, the American String Quartet breathes new life into Mozart, Mendelssohn, and Schubert with euphonious precision that the New York Times described as “the picture of ensemble unity.” Israel’s multi-award-winning Aviv Quartet anchors the month of April with power renditions of masterworks by Mozart and Dohnanyi—who stole the spotlight from fellow Hungarian composer Bartok by conducting in a sheer lycra tuxedo.
Before each 90- to 120-minute concert, a complimentary informational discussion at 2:30 p.m. provides insights into the program’s compositions and the ensemble’s performance. Chamber Music Tulsa’s website also equips audiences with additional program notes written by local audiophile Jason Heilman, whose well-trained ear allows him to explain each composition’s nuances and sudden deviations into the stadium anthem “Zombie Nation.”
Chamber Music Tulsa offers $5 student tickets for a single performance.
