Let the Rembrandt Chamber Players sweep you away to classical Italy! The voyage begins with Gioachino Rossini’s Sonata for two violins, cello, and bass. The charming sonata is followed by Igor Stravinsky’s salute to Italy, his magnificent Suite Italienne for cello and piano. Finally, be the first audience to hear the composer Peter Labella’s arrangement of Camille Saint-Saëns’ iconic The Carnival of the Animals. Written specifically for the Rembrandt Chamber Players, this work’s special debut concludes the evening.
Doors open at 7 p.m. and the duration of the performance is approximately two hours.
This program is presented in partnership with the Rembrandt Chamber Players. For additional information, please visit RembrandtChamberPlayers.org or call 312 360 3145.
