Bridgehampton Chamber Music Summer Festival at Home: Boccherini & Mendelssohn – Virtuosity
Bridgehampton Chamber Music presents Summer Festival at Home, five hour-long programs premiering on consecutive Sundays at 6:30 pm on the BCMF website – www.bcmf.org – and YouTube channel and remaining available for one week. Each program, which opens with an introduction from BCM Artistic Director Marya Martin, who will also interview featured performers and composers, will present favorite performances from recent festivals. We end our 2020 virtual season with two virtuoso works: Boccherini’s Flute Quintet in G major and Mendelssohn’s phenomenal Piano Quartet No. 3 in B minor, written when the composer was just 15 years old. Marya speaks with Orion Weiss about the Mendelssohn Piano Quartet, and the challenges of the current moment.
Together, these works demonstrate the beauty and ingenuity of the human spirit. We hope that this, and all of our programs this summer, will buoy you as we look forward to a time when we can all gather together once again!
