Debussy and Brahms

Wang Chamber Music Series
Mid-19th and 20th Century Chamber Music

   Bacewicz — Quartet for Four Violins
   Debussy — Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp
   Brahms — Sextet No. 2 in G Major

Works from two lions of classical composition and a piece from a relative unknown mark the program for the first Wang Chamber Concert performance of the season. Debussy’s melancholy Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp was a major influence on the “neo-classicism” movement and represented the despair he felt over World War I and his impending death.

Brahms’ darkly beautiful Sextet No. 2 in G Major showcases an artist at peak powers, so clever he could embed a hidden melody that spells out the name of a lover. It remains one of the best-loved chamber works in the repertoire. Twentieth century composer Grazyna Bacewicz’s Quartet for Four Violins, originally written as a teaching piece in the late 1940s, has gone on to become her most famous work, offering up clear and concise classic musical lines.
