Winter Classics

December 4 - 9, 2018

The 2018 Winter Classics concerts will feature music for a Piano Quartet with Benjamin Breen, violin (New York); Martin Sher, viola (North Carolina); Zuill Bailey, cello; Awadagin Pratt (Ohio) in concerts in Walla Walla at Foundry Vineyards, in Coeur d’Alene at the Hagadone Event Center, and Barrister Winery in Spokane.

The two piano quartets on the Winter Classics programs of Schumann and Brahms will present two amazing pieces, the Schumann full of lush, romantic melodies and one of the greatest works of its kind ever written, and the Brahms one of the most dramatic chamber works ever written.  Both may be love songs to Clara Schumann.
