Set during the Renaissance in Venice and Ferrara, Victor Hugo’s play is full of sensuality and decadence – jealousy, espionage, betrayal and poison. Even more than Lucia di Lammermoor, Lucrezia Borgia is Donizetti’s great bel canto masterpiece. Vocal fireworks illumine this grand, dark-hued melodrama.

SYBARITE5 has taken audiences by storm all across the US, changing the perception of chamber music performance. From the moment their bows hit the strings, this quintet of virtuosic, diverse musicians takes the audience on an exciting ride that engages the senses and redefines the rules. The Quintet has a reputation for questioning audiences’ perceptions of “What is music?” and “Who plays what?” Inspired by the alternative band Radiohead, SYBARITE5 continues to push the boundaries of what is concert music. Everything In Its Right Place brings it all full circle in a cohesive showcase of SYBARITE5‘s regular playlist, including music by Radiohead, Piazzolla, Mozart, and Brubeck, as well as groundbreaking new compositions for the group by such composers as Mohammed Fairouz, Eric Byers, Daniel Bernard Roumain, Dan Visconti, and the Armenian composer Komitas.

SYBARITE5 takes a big risk in covering Radiohead’s haunting “Pyramid Song,” and it is an absolutely masterful interpretation. Their versatility and musicianship is on full display here!

This unique tea includes an I Spy tour and a hot-chocolate (with whipped cream!), plus a Tea Party including finger sandwiches and cookies; recommended for children 4 and up. This event is always darling.

Chamber Talk 1
It Hurts So Good: The String Quartet (featuring The Dover Quartet)
The string quartet is a genre that requires intense dedication and many hours of rehearsal. Why do so many musicians consider the string quartet to be the highest summit of classical music? We’ll explore this question in a conversation with the 2013-2014 Ernst Stiefel String Quartet-in-Residence, The Dover Quartet. We will also discuss the history and structure of Janáček’s “Kreutzer” Quartet, including the story of betrayal and murder that inspired the piece.

Chamber Talk is a new three-part series hosted by Evnin Rising Star alum and viola player, Max Mandel. The goal of this program is to give audiences a deeper understanding of, and connection to, Caramoor’s Music Room events and its artists. Each talk will follow a similar pattern of lecture, concert, and conversation. This salon-style performance format allows audiences an opportunity to go in-depth and get up-close to the most personal aspects of music—the way it’s meant to be enjoyed.

Mozart / String Quartet No. 16 in E-flat, K. 428/421b
Janacek / String Quartet No. 1, “Kreutzer Sonata”
Schuber / String Quartet No. 13 in a, Op. 29, No. 1, D. 804, “Rosamunde”
