Tuesday, October 21, 2014
12:00 am - 8:45 pm


What do you know about chamber music?

Max Mandel, Evnin Rising Star alum and accomplished viola player, breaks it down for you with style, charm, and wit. This entertaining salon-style series, with live music and conversation from artistic, historical, political, and insider perspectives, is designed for the chamber novice as well as seasoned concert-goers. You’ll leave with a true sense of how and why the music works.

This Chamber Talk focuses on the role of mentorship in the classical tradition and how it impacts musicians and composers, using Brahms and his relationships with Clara and Robert Schumann as a prime example. The lecture includes an open rehearsal of Brahms’ Piano Quintet in f minor with Leon Fleisher, Kenneth Renshaw, YooJin Jang, Matt Lipman, and SuJin Lee.  Following the open rehearsal is a Q&A among Max Mandel, Leon Fleisher, and these four Evnin Rising Stars musicians.
