Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival – “Something’s in the Air”

2429 Montauk Highway
Bridgehampton, New York 11932

7:30 PM
Some programs, such as this one, have many stories to tell. Opening the concert is a work based on a baroque passacaglia by Handel, but molded into a romantic showpiece by a Swedish composer named Halvorsen. Contemporary composer and Festival favorite Kevin Puts also looks back to the Baroque in his Four Airs, a unique work in which each of the musicians takes a turn performing with the pianist. Meanwhile, Kodály’s fascinating Serenade for Two Violins and Viola tells a story of night in three movements, complete with a midnight call to a lover’s window. Dvořák’s rich and opulent Piano Quartet which closes the program is a story to itself, a grand statement full of twists, turns and surprises.
Tickets: $40/50
