Carnegie Hall: The Met Orchestra Chamber Ensemble
Johannes Brahms — Horn Trio in E-flat major, Op. 40
Antonín Dvořák — Serenade for wind instruments, cello, and double bass in D minor, Op. 44, B. 77
The Met Orchestra Chamber Ensemble brings together musicians from The Met Orchestra in new configurations to perform all manner of chamber material. Included on this program are three must-hear works for fans of wind and brass instruments. Brahms's Trio in E-flat major for Violin, Horn, and Piano—the composer's only chamber work that includes horn, an instrument he loved—is an incredibly poignant piece of music, heart-wrenching from the onset but thoroughly invigorating. Dvořák’s Serenade in D minor is an effortlessly pleasing piece, masterfully orchestrated with the warm, rich instrumentation of a traditional serenade. Assobio a Jato ("The Jet Whistle"), composed here in New York by the great Brazilian composer Villa-Lobos, is a wonderful duet for flute and cello playfully named after a technique employed by the flutist in the finale.
The Met Orchestra Chamber Ensemble provides a unique opportunity to hear members of the full Met Orchestra outside of the opera house and in the intimacy of Weill Recital Hall.https://www.carnegiehall.org/Events/MET-Orchestra-Chamber-Ensemble
