Portland Chamber Music Festival: Intimate Voices
The final concert of PCMF's inaugural Winter Warmer Festival, featuring the Borromeo String Quartet and violist Kim Kashkashian!
Ethereal beauty, profound majesty, and flashes of warmth… this delightful matinée is like hot cocoa by the fire after a wintry woods walk. Sibelius transports us to a world of Nordic landscapes, where a shimmering atmosphere intertwines with moments of quiet conversation. Best known for his monumental symphonies, Bruckner brings his mastery to the intimate realm of chamber music with a quintet filled with rich textures and expansive flourishes. Internationally renowned for her extraordinary lyricism, violist Kim Kashkashian joins the Borromeo String Quartet to bring PCMF’s inaugural Winter Warmer Festival to a heartwarming, radiant conclusion.
Jean Sibelius String Quartet, "Intimate Voices" (1909) Anton Bruckner String Quintet in F Major (1878-1879)
