BMC Chamber Series presents ESPRESSIVO!

BRATTLEBORO — The Brattleboro Music Center (BMC) Chamber Series features the new quartet Espressivo! Friday, June 2, at 7 p.m., at the BMC.

This group of four artists - violinist Jaime Laredo, cellist Sharon Robinson, violist Milena Pájaro-von de Stadt, and pianist Anna Polonsky - known for their expressive playing, thought Espressivo! seemed the perfect name for their collaboration of piano and strings.

For decades, Laredo and Robinson, with their piano trio partner, the late Joseph Kalichstein, were considered (1)“chamber music royalty” (The Washington Post), a term that applies equally to their Espressivo! Partners: Pájaro-von de Stadt, is formerly of the Dover Quartet, and Polonsky, who, according to the ensemble's website, is “widely in demand as a soloist and chamber musician.”

For this concert, Espressivo! has chosen “Morpheus” for viola and piano by Rebecca Clarke, Piano Quartet in C minor, Op. 15 by Fauré, and Piano Quartet in A major by Brahms.

Tickets are $30 general admission. For more information, contact the BMC at 802-257-4523, [email protected] or
