Apex Concerts resumes its Seventh Season after the winter break with a presentation by one of the most prestigious chamber music organizations in the nation: the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. Reno music lovers will delight in an evening juxtaposing two musical giants of the Romanticism: Antonin Dvořák and Johannes Brahms. Contemporaries and friends, Dvořák and Brahms drew mutual inspiration from each other, and it was to Brahms’ Gypsy-inspired Hungarian Dances that Dvořák turned for his own Slavonic Dances, which proved a sure-fire hit with audiences ever since its premiere. Brahms’ C minor Piano Trio–a work of searing intensity and epic proportions–can be heard before intermission, while Dvořák’s Piano Quintet in A major, one of the finest piano quintets in the repertoire, brings the program to a thrilling close. Like most of Dvořák’s output, it is filled with melodic inspiration, rhythmic vitality, emotional impact, and that particular nationalistic voice in his music that is undeniably his own.

DVORAK: Selected Slavonic Dances for Piano, Four Hands
BRAHMS: Trio for Piano, Violin, and Cello in C-Minor, Op. 101
BRAHMS: Selected Hungarian Dances for Piano, Four Hands
DVORAK: Quintet for Piano & Strings in A-Major, Op. 81
