Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival – “Bright Night”

2429 Montauk Highway
Bridgehampton, New York 11932

Night fell far too early for Franz Schubert – he died at the tender age of 32. As his long night approached he burned ever brighter, producing some of the most beloved chamber music ever composed, including the monumental and radiant Cello Quintet, the last chamber work Schubert completed. The program opens with his rarely heard Notturno for Piano Trio, also written in his final two years, a glorious evocation of night. In between these masterworks, we will feature BCMF’s first commission, Ned Rorem’s aptly titled Bright Music, written for the festival almost 30 years ago, but like the genius of Schubert shining as brightly as ever.
