TICKETS — In its season finale, The Paramount Chamber Players presents two great masterpieces. The first half features the Archduke Piano Trio, named for its dedication to the Archduke Rudolph of Austria, a friend and mentor of Beethoven. The piece is recognized as one of the most transcendent works in all of chamber music for its combination of both spiritual and earth-bound qualities. The second half is the Dvorak piano quartet, a work filled with folk melodies and the sounds of gypsy rhythms. Brahms, though admittedly jealous of Dvorak’s ability to effortlessly pour out melody, championed Dvorak’s music. It’s no wonder that his music has been an audience favorite for more than 100 years! Players appearing include Craig W. Combs, piano; George Figueroa, violin; David Kovac, viola; and Sarah Kapps, guest artist from Atlanta, on cello.
