Austin Baroque Orchestra Chamber Soloists

We close our eighth season with a musical voyage to Napoleonic France and Biedermeier Vienna, with chamber music featuring ABO’s principal players. There will be Beethoven from before he sounded like Beethoven, with his elegant Piano Quartet in C major, a product of his youthful and Haydn-influenced First Period. We’ll follow that with a dazzling and quirky quintet by his childhood friend Antoine Reicha, the so-called “Father of the Wind Quintet.” Finally, we’ll end with music by Louis Spohr, a virtuoso violinist and inventor of the violin and viola chin rest. His Gran Nonetto is a rarely-performed and virtuosic large chamber work for strings and winds that is a perfect blend of Classical balance and Romantic passion that shows the influence of both Haydn and Beethoven.
