What do you know about chamber music?

Max Mandel, Evnin Rising Star alum and accomplished viola player, breaks it down for you with style, charm, and wit. This entertaining salon-style series, with live music and conversation from historical, political, comedic, and insider perspectives, is designed for the chamber novice as well as seasoned concert-goers. You’ll leave with a true sense of how and why the music works.

Joseph Haydn, known as Father of the String Quartet, mentored Ludwig van Beethoven, even though they each had very different paths to greatness. Haydn served as a court musician to a wealthy family, Beethoven refused to serve anything but his own musical goals. Haydn was beloved by his colleagues whereas Beethoven was a considered to be difficult. Haydn was a collaborative player, Beethoven preferred independence. Max Mandel rounds off this Chamber Talk with a conversation with the Calidore Quartet about their upcoming November 16 program and these momentous composers.

Formed at the Colburn Conservatory of Music in Los Angeles in 2010, the Calidore Quartet is composed of four young talented up-and-coming musicians who together have won top prizes in the United States and internationally including the Grand Prize and Gold Medal at the 2011 Fischoff Chamber Music Competition. The Calidore Quartet has the rare ability to capture “the occasion when technique is overwhelmed by the drama of a work” (Classic 107). They perform three popular quartets from Haydn, Hindemith and Beethoven but you’ll hear these favorites like you’re hearing them for the first time as the Calidore make every piece seem as though it was written just for them.
