Musical Club of Hartford

Member Program and Open House - Oct 4, 2018

One of Chopin’s 24 Préludes, Op. 28 will be played by Victor Nigri, a 2018-2019 E. B. Storrs scholar. These
pieces were written for piano between 1835 and 1839. There is one in each of the twenty-four keys,
beginning with C Major. Carrie Hammond, soprano, accompanied by *Jonathan Hammond, clarinet, and
*Nathaniel Baker, piano, will sing two songs by Mahler, arranged for this instrumentation: The Heavenly
Life and St. Anthony’s Sermon to the Fish. Completing the program, Lisa Kugelman, violin, Virginia Allen,
viola, Fran Bard, cello, and Stacy Cahoon, piano, will perform 3 movements from the Piano Quartet No. 3
in C Minor, Opus 60, by Brahms. Because of the brooding quality of this quartet it is called the “Werther
Quartet” after Goethe’s novel “The Sorrows of Young Werther.”

Reception follows. Admission free.
