The London-based period-instrument ensemble makes its Caramoor debut in a rare area appearance. The English Concert performs Baroque and Classical repertoire with the passion, sophistication and technical mastery established at its creation in 1972.

“Through it all, Bicket and The English Concert were nothing short of brilliant. Sporting perfectly tight ensemble, spacious and ringing tone, a variety of colors, gleaming strings and clean, forceful brass, they are the model of a period chamber orchestra in every sense.” — New York Classical Review

Molsky’s Mountain Drifters brings tradition steeped in possibility. The grace and wisdom of longtime fiddle player and multi-instrumentalist Bruce Molsky, described as “an absolute master” (No Depression) melds with the electricity of guitarist Stash Wyslouch, “a brilliant and free-thinking mind” (Chris Eldridge, Punch Brothers), and banjo player Allison de Groot’s “exquisite tone, timing, and taste” (Tony Trishka) to bring new ideas to old music. Hear the satisfying blend of these distinct yet harmonious musicians bring the folk tradition to the intimate Music Room.

“They are a force to be reckoned with and are creating some of the most soul-stirring music out there today… It is a rarity to hear music that lacks ego and puts soulfulness and a respect for tradition at the forefront. Bruce is simply one of the greatest musicians there is, period.” — Sarah Jarosz

French pianist Alexandre Tharaud took a sabbatical year to perfect his interpretation of J.S. Bach’s Goldberg Variations, a set of 30 variations on an original theme that is one of the pinnacles of the keyboard literature. His 2015 recording of this demanding and complex work received widespread acclaim and praise for his unique approach to the masterpiece.

“He conceives the whole piece as a drama that sucks us in and doesn’t let us go, and carefully paints vivid character along the way.” — The Guardian

What makes great music great? Distinguished and engaging composer/conductor Rob Kapilow presents a program that delves into Mozart’s “Dissonance” String Quartet with our current Ernst Stiefel String Quartet-in-Residence. Kapilow will deconstruct, dissect, slow down, and reassemble Mozart’s final quartet dedicated to his friend, Joseph Haydn. Discover why “Dissonance” has come to be considered one of the most famous of his 26 quartets.

“Because Kapilow is so good at what he does, knowledge about how music actually works, how it is put together–as opposed to dry facts about composers’ lives — doesn’t fly away with the whirlwind, but instead lodges in the memory, where they can grow.” — Boston Globe
