Event Description

Valley of the Moon Music Festivals 2017 Green Music Center concert series concludes with a program devoted to Brahms. Boston-based contralto Emily Marvosh will take the stage alongside ace violinist Jodi Levitz and Eric Zivian on fortepiano in Brahms Two Songs for alto, viola and piano.

Marvosh has been a frequent soloist with the Handel and Haydn Society under the direction of Harry Christophers, earning raves for her "rich, clear contralto" (Washington Post), "dark, caramel voice...and fiery power" (Boston Classical Review).

Also on the program is Brahms Horn Trio featuring Sadie Glass on the natural horn, Ian Swensen on violin and Zivian on fortepiano. The concert concludes with Brahms Piano Quartet in G Minor with violinist Bettina Mussumeli joining Levitz, cellist Tanya Tomkins and Zivian.

Valley of the Moon Music Festival is the first and only organization in the U.S. devoted exclusively to presenting the chamber music of the Classical and Romantic eras, performed on instruments built when the music was written.

Fee: $0.00
