The Program

Described as a “luminous stream of vocal color” by the Chicago Sun-Times, soprano Josefien Stoppelenburg takes the audience on a musical journey through Europe with the help of the Rembrandt Chamber Players. The focus is on Holland, Germany, and France, and the path is paved by Mozart, Schumann, a new arrangement of Canteloube, as well as a brand-new work from Chicago composer Sebastian Huydts.

  • Mozart—Andante and Rondo for Flute and Piano: Mozart claimed to detest the flute, which you would never guess after listening to this composition’s sprightly showcase of the instrument
  • Huydts—Quartet for Piano and Strings: trained in Amsterdam with Edith Lateiner-Grosz, Sebastian Huydts drew on his experiences in the Netherlands for this new piece commissioned for the Rembrandt Chamber Players
  • Canteloube—Songs of the Auvergne: composer Joseph Canteloube spent much of his adult life collecting the traditional songs of his native Auvergne on an early tape recorder, then converted them into this ethereal collection of choral music
  • Schumann—Quartet for Piano and Strings in E-flat Major: like a painting on the head of a pin, this work from the German master is equal parts intricate and beautiful

Rembrandt Chamber Musicians

Culled from principal members of the Lyric Opera of Chicago and Music of the Baroque, the group known as Rembrandt Chamber Musicians—founded in 1990—travels the centuries with works ranging from historically informed performances of Baroque classics to modern compositions by local composers.

The innovative team of musicians has held many one-of-a-kind performances and worked with a variety of talented artists over the years. For one thing, The Mahler Project, presented as an innovative take on chamber arrangements of Mahler’s larger symphonies, lasted three years. For another, they commissioned and introduced a new sonata for oboe and piano by Grammy Award winner Howard Levy in 2012.

Rembrandt Chamber Musicians' music echoes into the future through their multitude of youth-focused programs and competitions. In 1995, RCM founded the Rembrandt Young Artists Competition, a high school level chamber music tournament for public and private schools throughout Illinois. The winning teams receive coaching, opportunities to perform, and access to help with educational outreach programs around Chicago.
