Omaha's Rangbrook Ensemble, now in its second season, will present "Exquisite Resolution", a free concert of chamber music by Clara Schumann and Johannes Brahms. The concert will be held Saturday, September 14, 2013 at 7:30pm at First Presbyterian Church in Omaha. The performance is open to the public and no tickets are required for admission.
For listeners new to classical music, this concert presents an opportunity to hear a wide range of what chamber music has to offer from an intimate piano trio to the near-orchestral string sextet. The ensemble will take listeners through a journey of love, loss, regret, and resolution via music as emotionally relatable to listeners now as it was 150 years ago.
The concert will open with a seldom heard piano trio written by Clara Schumann, a highly gifted composer who was overshadowed by her husband and often disregarded by performers because of her gender. Guest pianist Yulia Kalashnikova will join Rangbrook Ensemble members Jeffery King (violin) and Sophia Potter (cello).
For the second half of the concert, King and Potter will be joined by Juliet Yoshida (violin), Jesse Griggs and JoAnna Cochenet (violas), and Tim Strang (cello) for Johannes Brahms’ String Sextet in G major. This piece presents the only opportunity to hear all six members of the Rangbrook Ensemble perform together this season.
