“Playing of wonderful exuberance and fire” is how The Guardian described the Elias Quartet’s performance of Shuman’s Quintet for Piano and Strings. This virtuoso quartet and their special guest Benjamin Hochman capture the energy and deep pathos of this history-making Quintet, as well as Haydn’s Quartet in C-Major, Op. 33, No. 3 (“The Bird”), famed for its light airy notes and playful joke that delights the audience. Britten’s Quartet No. 3 in G-Major (1975) features the haunting notes and contrasting keys that typified his later works. This will be a remarkable concert that provides the audience a rollercoaster ride through some of the world’s greatest chamber music.
*On Stage seating will be limited.*

A native of Rockford, Illinois, Emily Bear broke into the national spotlight at age six, when she appeared on the “Ellen DeGeneres Show,” appearing four more times all within a span of two years. She made her Carnegie Hall debut at age nine and performed at the Hollywood Bowl at age 10. Needless to say, this pianist and composer is one of the most astonishing musical talents of our time. Now, age 13 and under the mentorship of Quincy Jones, she brings us her diverse talent. Along with a jazz trio, she seamlessly moves from classical music to jazz. You’ll want to be able to say you saw her when.

Curtain Talk begins at 2:15 p.m.

Bruce Hornsby is a master of the keyboard. Having won a Grammy in 1986 for best new artist, he refused to be pinned down stylistically.

A collaborator at heart, Hornsby has played with and written for The Grateful Dead, Bonnie Raitt, Don Henley, Ricky Skaggs, Bela Fleck and Branford Marsalis. In the music world, working with Hornsby is a rare pleasure, experiencing him in an intimate venue like the Gallagher Bluedorn will be as well.
