DAYTON, OH (Jan. 9, 2022) – Dayton Performing Arts Alliance (DPAA) presents an intimate afternoon of chamber music featuring the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra’s Principal String Quartet and friends on January 15 at 3 pm at Dayton Art Institute’s Mimi and Stuart Rose Auditorium. The concert features Brahms’ Clarinet Trio in A minor, Op. 114 and Schubert’s String Quintet in C Major.
The afternoon begins with Johannes Brahms’ Clarinet Trio in A minor, Op. 114 for clarinet, cello, and piano featuring Philharmonic principal clarinet, John Kurokawa; principal cello, Jonathan Lee; and principal keyboard, Joshua Nesmith. The Clarinet Trio is one of Brahms’ four chamber pieces highlighting the instrument and was specifically written for the clarinetist
, Richard Mühlfeld after Brahms heard him perform in March 1891.
Composed two months before his death in 1828, Franz Schubert’s String Quintet in C Major, Op. 163 is often referred to as the “Cello Quintet” because it is written for a standard string quartet (two violins, two violas, and a cello) but substitutes a second cello for one of the violas, to create a rich, low register. The String Quintet in C Major is considered Schubert’s only full-string quintet. Dayton Philharmonic’s acting concertmaster Aurelian Oprea; violin Kirstin Greenlaw; principal viola Sheridan Currie; principal cello John Kurokawa; assistant principal cello Christina Coletta will perform what is generally regarded as one of Schubert’s finest chamber works.
Adult tickets are $25, and students are $10. Tickets are on sale at daytonperformingarts.org/tickets/chamberconcert.
