The Buffalo Chamber Music Society presents the Manhattan Chamber Players at Kleinhans Music Hall.
Members of the Manhattan Chamber Players all have formidable day jobs as soloists and members of professional chamber ensembles. They join together, in the true spirit of chamber music, to play works of the chamber repertoire with their friends and colleagues. Founded in 2015, the organization includes prize winners in international competitions and current and former members of leading musical organizations such as the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, as well as the Dover, Escher and Aizuri quartets. They will perform three great works of the Romantic repertoire, Schumann’s Piano Quartet in E-flat major, Op.47, Brahms’ Piano Quartet in C minor, Op.60, and Dvořák’s Piano Quartet No.2 in Eb major, Op.87.
SCHUMANN Piano Quartet in Eb major, Op.47
