On the first Monday of each month, Chicago Chamber Musicians brings in some of Chicago’s top chamber players for a free concert at Preston Bradley Hall at the Chicago Cultural Center. Sometimes it’s string players, sometimes it’s woodwinds, others may be brass, or even a mixture—whatever the repertoire requires of this musician co-op. WFMT is there to broadcast the concerts live at 12:15 pm.
Monday’s concert brings a little Beethoven with an early piece by American composer John Corigliano.
Beethoven: Violin Sonata in G Major, Op. 30 No. 3
I. Allegro assai
II. Tempo di Minuetto, ma molto moderato e grazioso
III. Allegro vivace
John Corigliano (b. 1938): Sonata for Violin and Piano
II. Andantino (with simplicity)
III. Lento (quasi recitativo)
