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. Our Winter Collective features violinist Kay Stern and pianist Elizabeth Schumann in works that feature fugal composition (lots of “subjects”!). We will premiere Kamyar Mohajer’s Fugue for String Trio and perform preludes and fugues by Bach (arranged for string trio by Mozart) as well as the beloved Piano Quartet, Op. 47, by Robert Schumann.
