Society for Chamber Music in Rochester (SCMR) continues its 42nd season with Baroque and Blue, which features classical music and a wine tasting. In addition, audience members will enjoy an inside look at the repertoire with a pre-concert talk by Artistic Directors and Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) Musicians Juliana Athayde and Erik Behr.

SCMR carries on with what is becoming a popular tradition, presenting the annual Baroque and Blue concert with a few extra twists. Athayde and Behr explain, “the program begins with Handel’s warm and expressive Sonata for Two Cellos in G minor, which will be followed by an innovative work from the contemporary American composer and cellist, Paul Wianko.” Last season the musicians received an enthusiastic response when they performed Wianko’s American Haiku for Viola and Cello and this work, Toy Bricks, is yet another fascinating example of his multi-faceted classical/rock/folk style. Athayde and Behr note, “the instrumentation is notable as well – violin, two celli and string bass!”

The first half concludes with the first movement of Brahms’ Piano Trio in B Major. Performed by the outstanding Hochstein Capriccio Scholarship Piano Trio consisting of violinist Andrew Guo, cellist Jackie Hager, and pianist Raymond Feng, this is one of the last opportunities to hear these talented young musicians before they graduate high school.

On the second half, SCMR presents Claude Bolling’s diverse and entertaining Suite for Violin and Jazz Piano Trio.

SCMR is pleased to continue complimentary wine tastings at intermission. The pre-concert talk is at 3:30pm and the performance begins at 4:00pm.
