The Marlbrook Chamber Players will explore masterworks of chamber music with themes of tragedy and the macabre this fall. The program features Ysaye's passionate violin sonata, incorporating Bach's lighthearted passages and the dramatic "Dies Irae". The Beethoven Ghost trio follows, believed to represent a ghost's conversation with mourners. The program culminates with Shostakovich's Piano Trio No. 2, a haunting work for violin, cello, and piano that mourns the horrific treatment of the Jewish people during WWII. Though the program explores dark places, music can express these difficult subjects of humanity in a way that calls us to a higher place. Join us for a program that explores both joy and sorrow.
