130122_BurlingtonEnsemble_001This is the first event in our new Peak Classics Series and the first of four performances with the Burlington Ensemble!

With Burlington Ensemble (“be”) you’ll experience uncompromising musicianship, timeless and energetic music, and a fun evening out that helps you and your neighbors – making music with a social mission. “be” is a professional chamber music group that believes extraordinary music demands full community participation. “be” concerts raise funds for local non-profit organizations that benefit families, while simultaneously building new audiences for classical music, supporting local musicians, and building community. The September 13 performance features guest pianist Joe Goetz (VPR Afternoon Classical Host).

Repertoire includes:

  • Mendelssohn String Quartet Opus 13
  • Mozart Piano Quartet in G minor, K.478


Other performances in the “b-4″ series:

Burlington Ensemble: Named  Angels — A Mohammed Fairouz Musical Portrait

  • “Chorale Fantasy”
  • “Lamentation & Satire” (for string quartet)
  • “The Named Angels” (for string quartet)
  • “Pierrot Lunaire” (violin, cello, flute, clarinet and piano)

Mohammed Fairouz is one of today’s most successful and celebrated young composers at age 28.  His symphonies, operas and chamber music have been performed at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and around the US.  A native New Yorker, his music is intensely energetic, and includes reflections of his Arab-American heritage, as does New York today.  Burlington Ensemble (“be”) brings uncompromising musicianship and community participation to his work.  Fairouz will attend the concert and lead the pre-concert conversation.
