About this event

Hidden Gems features great music that’s a little off the beaten path. Nadia Boulanger is widely regarded as the greatest composition teacher of the 20th century. Her fame as a teacher often obscured her own work as a composer. We feature her brilliant 3 Pieces for cello and piano as examples of her great gifts. Mexican composer José Pablo Moncayo was well-known in his heyday, but his music has fallen into obscurity. We feature his gorgeous work Amatzinac for flute and string quartet. Mozart wrote 27 piano concertos; the fame of the late concertos often obscures appreciation of his earlier concertos. Mozart’s Piano Concerto no. 11 in F Major is a masterpiece of charm and understated passion. The program concludes with Ernst von Dohnanyi’s spectacular Piano Quartet in F-sharp minor, a work he wrote at age 16 that was rediscovered in the last ten years.

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.
