Praised for their sophisticated interpretation and polished performances, they deliver innovative chamber music repertoire to their audiences. In this special program they present four of Stravinskys chamber pieces, showing a broad spectrum of the composers varied style of writing. As homage to Stravinsky, the program will also feature other chamber pieces by three American composers Aaron Copland, James Cohn, and Joan Tower that echo Stravinskys compositional style.
