Greetings! I am happy to announce the 2023–24 season of Glissando. We will present four concerts, all held at First Church Boston (66 Marlborough Street, Back Bay).
This season, the featured composer is Franz Schubert, whose works will appear in three of our concerts. The opening and closing concerts (on September 22 and May 5, respectively) include such well-known and beloved works by the Viennese master as the Impromptus and Moments Musicaux for the piano as well as the sublime String Quintet in C. We will also feature lesser-known but fabulous pieces, the Allegretto in C minor for the piano (in the September concert) and the Divertissement à la Hongroise for piano duet (in the January concert).
The second program, on January 26, will celebrate Mozart’s and Schubert’s birthdays. The program, played by Ian Lindsey and me, will include works for piano duet by these composers as well as by Debussy and Brahms. The third concert, on March 22, will be dedicated to French music, with solo piano works by the two most illustrious members of the famous Couperin family, Louis and François, in the first half and the gorgeous First Piano Quartet by Gabriel Fauré in the second half.
The opening concert (September 22 at 7:30pm) is free and open to the public (donations are welcome). The ticket information for the remaining three concerts is on the “Concerts and Tickets” page of this website, here: https://glissandoconcerts.com/concerts/.
Thank you for your interest and support! I look forward to seeing you at our concerts.
