With this first quintet program of the season, the River Oaks Chamber Orchestra’s Brass Quintet will explore some early chamber music for brass, from composers active in St. Petersburg who were inspired by the string quartet tradition. In addition to being composers, Ramsoe was a violinist and Ewald was a cellist. Böhme moved from Germany to Budapest and finally in 1897 to St. Petersburg. Although much of his music is well known by brass musicians, his Nachtmusik was discovered only recently.
The musicians will also perform music composed in a much later period, by Armenian composer Alexander Arutiunian and by Igor Stravinsky.Wilhelm Ramsöe, Quartet No. 4Victor Ewald, Quintet No. 3, Op. 7Oskar Böhme, Nachtmusik, Op. 44Alexander Arutiunian, Armenian ScenesIgor Stravinsky, Fanfare for a New TheaterThe first performance is Oct. 14, at Midtown Arts & Theater Center Houston (MATCH) at 6:30pm.
