The talented musicians performing in Ensemble Connect form “one of the strongest ensembles in the city” (New York Classical Review). Over the course of this two-year fellowship program, extraordinary young professionals perform a series of concerts that smartly bridges the history and future of classical music, from timeless Baroque music to new works. This program includes a Philadelphia premiere by Michi Wiancko, commissioned by Carnegie Hall; brilliant quintets by Mozart and R. Schumann; and Dark Wood by Pulitzer Prize winner Jennifer Higdon—a title that refers to the bassoon, used virtuosically throughout the piece.

HigdonDark Wood
Mozart: Quintet for Piano and Winds in E-flat Major, K. 452
M. Wiancko: 7 Kinships (Phila. Premiere)
Schumann: Piano Quintet in E-flat Major, Op. 44
Note: Ensemble Connect replaces the St. Lawrence Quartet performance originally scheduled for this date. Tickets for the St. Lawrence event will gain you entrance to Ensemble Connect.
