The Ives Collective presents powerful live music experiences through fresh and informed interpretations of established masterworks and underappreciated gems. With core members and Artistic Co-Directors Susan Freier and Stephen Harrison, the Collective wants to share their joy in bringing together old friends and new in a variety of combinations to perform the widest possible spectrum of chamber music. Their Winter series, Receiving Mozart’s Spirit, will bring back the beloved former first fiddle of the Ives Quartet, Robin Sharp, and the artistry of pianist Elizabeth Schumann to join us in concerts that will feature masterworks from the Classical period – the String Trio in G, Op. 9, No. 1 and Piano Trio in C minor, Op. 1, No. 3 by Beethoven alongside Mozart’s E-flat major Piano Quartet, K. 493.
