The Deal

The Program – “Virtuosity”

The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center showcases a pack of remarkable soloists in a trio of selections designed to highlight impressive instrumentalists. Co–Artistic Director and pianist Wu Han is joined by violinists Benjamin Beilman, Kristin Lee and Sean Lee, violist Richard O’Neill, and cellist Nicholas Canellakis.

  • Mozart—Quartet in E-flat: It could be said that Mozart invented the piano quartet. Considering that a compact version of the instrument didn’t arrive until the 1760s, it wasn’t until the 1780s that musically mature pieces were being written for it. Among these first great works was the Quartet in E-flat, a roller-coaster journey crafted by Mozart at the height of his fame.
  • Schubert—Rondo in A major for Violin and String Quartet: Called “undoubtedly Schubert’s concerted masterpiece” by, the Rondo provides a significant showcase for talented soloists without neglecting the whole—right through the thunderous conclusion.
  • Mendelssohn—Double Concerto in D minor for Violin, Piano, and Strings: piano and violin soloists dazzle side-by-side in Mendelssohn’s equal opportunity showcase

St. Cecilia Music Center

Named after the patron saint of music, St. Cecilia Music Center is considered to be the “mother of the arts” in Grand Rapids. After all, it’s not just a fixture; it’s the establishment that started it all. Area women formed the center in 1883, performing in each other's homes until a steadily growing audience forced them to find bigger and bigger temporary residences. By 1894, they had a permanent headquarters in their very own building. The 650-seat auditorium, twinkling chandeliers, and reception room—anchored by arched windows—quickly attracted world-renowned musicians to the city to play for larger audiences. Today, the center continues to bring high-quality programs to its confines and even houses a School of Music, where young minds can grow to be great musicians.
