Belmont Camerata 

When: Mon., April 21, 7:30 p.m. 2014
This week’s performance marks the end of McAfee Concert Hall’s successful sophomore season. The year wraps up with Belmont Camerata, one of the university’s faculty ensembles, and features works by Brahms and Mozart. Brahms’ B Major Piano Trio begins as a vibrant exposé of three instruments and their playful melodic interactions; but a final movement — allegedly inspired by the attempted suicide and subsequent institutionalization of Brahms’ mentor and friend Robert Schumann — grounds us with an overtly dark and tumultuous conclusion. Mirroring Brahms’ emotional indecision, Mozart’s String Quintet No. 4 in G minor is characteristically melancholy until an equally unexpected blast of virtuosic viola disjoints the piece’s uniformity and tests listener patience. Featured guest musicians include violinist Dan Reinker (of the Nashville Symphony) and cellist Sara Sant’Ambrogio (of the Eroica Trio). Blending university ensembles and nationally recognized talent, McAfee further solidifies itself as a premier location for quality performances throughout the 2014/15 season, and this bill is no exception.
