OMP opens its ambitious and spirited 36th season with Korngold’s suite from Much Ado About Nothing, whose witty overture has been compared to that of Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro. The orchestra then lithely moves to Berio’s arrangement of Brahms’ free-spirited Sonata in F Minor for Clarinet, with guest soloist and acclaimed clarinetist David Shifrin. Shifrin, Artistic Director of Chamber Music Northwest since 1981, is one of only two wind players to have been awarded the Avery Fisher Prize. The revolutionary harmonic itinerary of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 brings the evening to a close with the musical embodiment of defiance, individualism, humanitarianism, and intolerance of hypocrisy that has long made this work an audience favorite. Long live the genius of an untamed personality!

The Dover Quartet catapulted to international stardom following a stunning sweep of the 2013 Banff International String Quartet Competition. Praised by The Strad for “exceptional interpretive maturity, tonal refinement and taut ensemble,” the quartet has become one of the most in-demand ensembles in the world. The Dover’s debut disc pays tribute to the renowned Guarneri Quartet, whose members served as mentors for the ensemble. Beginning their “mostly American” program with quartets by Richard Danielpour and Bartok, the Dover is joined by clarinetist David Shifrin to perform works for clarinet and string quartet by Corigliano and young American composer Chris Rogerson, along with arrangements of Duke Ellington tunes. Shifrin is in constant demand as an orchestral soloist, recitalist and chamber musician. His numerous recordings, including trios with cellist David Finckel and pianist Wu Han, have consistently garnered awards. A member of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center since 1989, Shifrin served as its artistic director from 1992 to 2004.

CMS’s Winter Festival celebrates the dawn of chamber music concert life, with four programs performed in Vienna in the 1820s. Between 1823 and 1828, 108 concerts were programmed, presented, and performed by Beethoven and Schubert’s friend and collaborator, the violinist Ignaz Schuppanzigh (1776-1830). In the process, Schuppanzigh became the acknowledged father of the classical chamber music series, and his promotion of the Classical style through the music of Schubert, Beethoven, Haydn, Mozart, and other worthy composers had a lasting effect on audiences and the chamber music world. This season’s Winter Festival recreates four of these remarkable programs, featuring the Juilliard, Miró, Escher, and Shanghai String Quartets and a host of CMS artists. Join us for pre-concert lectures by Christopher Gibbs, the author and scholar who recently brought Schuppanzigh’s extraordinary series to light (3/13/18), and distinguished archaeologist John R. Hale, who will explore the uniquely rich environment Vienna provided for musical creativity in the early 19th century (3/18/18).
