Trash to Treasure

About this event

Trash to Treasure features music that was treated as trash in its day and nearly discarded. Rebecca Clarke’s music languished for years until it was “unearthed” in the late 1970s. Today she is recognized as one of the great composers of the 20th century. We feature her Morpheus for viola and piano and the Dumka for violin, viola, and piano as passionate examples of her gifts. Much of Boccherini’s prolific output still lies undiscovered in library archives. His Quintet for flute, violin, viola, and two cellos is a recent rediscovery that almost didn’t make it to the light. The program concludes with Brahms’ epic Piano Quintet in F minor, one of the towering masterpieces of the repertoire. Audiences are surprised to learn that it is a work Brahms nearly consigned to the fire.

Join us for all eight programs! BDDS’s 31st season, Riches to Rags, ranges from traditional riches of the chamber music repertoire to great chamber music that has been systematically undervalued. Our season culminates in a week of ragtime, a quintessentially American music that developed in Black communities at the end of the 19th century. After two summers of mostly virtual offerings, we are thrilled to reintroduce audiences to the transformational power of live chamber music performed in intimate spaces.
