Fall 2016

As I look back on the past year, it occurred to me what a good year it has been for my repertory bucket list. Ranging from standard repertory I hadn't played before to some wonderful offbeat chamber works I've long wanted to play, I have been fortunate to have the opportunities to explore chamber music that was new to me: Brahms' glowing and exuberant F major viola quintet with the Worcester Chamber Music Society, Korngold's marvelous and passionate String Sextet (a glorious run of five concerts in the summer of 2015 with the DaPonte String Quartet, another opportunity to play it this coming May 2017 with the Boston Chamber Music Society), Enescu's amazing joy ride of a string octet with my colleagues at the Wellesley Composers Conference, Faure's sublime yet soaring Second Piano Quintet with my beloved Lydian String Quartet and wonderful guest Ya-Fei Chuang. Of course I have no complaints about all the other great repertory I've been getting to play whether old or new music, and have much to look forward to this coming season!
