“…the Harlem players produce such a seductively velvet sound and phrase so intuitively and exultantly that any potential difficulties seem to melt away.”
Julian Haylock, The Strad Magazine

“[Corea, Burton, and the Harlem Quartet] dove headlong into ‘Round Midnight,’ the strings adding considerable tonal depth and a sweeping, cinematic atmosphere to Thelonious Monk’s classic.”

About the Artist

The concert will include the most well-known of Mozart’s Flute Quartets, the D Major Quartet for Flute, Violin, Viola and Cello. This cheery and beautiful work stands tall in its compositional artistry. The slow movement is one of the most beautiful settings for flute and strings ever written. Ravel’s incredible Gypsy song, Tzigane for Violin and Piano is the second work on the program and is full of spicy, virtuosic rustic melodies. Schumann’s Piano Quartet in E Flat Major will finish the concert with dramatic interplay between the Piano and Strings. There is a lively scherzo, glorious third movement featuring a lush, romantic cello melody and a wildly energetic Finale. This will be a thrilling concert you won’t want to miss!

This program is supported in
part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts
and the City of Wichita.

Due to a serious family illness, the Matt Wilson Quartet has canceled their engagement with Chamber Music at The Barn  Fred Hersch Trio replaces the Matt Wilson Quartet. Tickets purchased for the Matt Wilson Quartet will be honored at the Fred Hersch Trio concert.


Proclaimed by Vanity Fair magazine, “the most arrestingly innovative pianist in jazz over the last decade or so,” 5-time Grammy nominee Fred Hersch balances his internationally recognized instrumental skills with significant achievements as a composer, bandleader, and theatrical conceptualist, as well as remaining an in-demand collaborator with other noted bandleaders and vocalists.
