The Chamber Music Society of Louisville, a presenting organization that brings in acclaimed chamber ensembles to Louisville, announced its 2014-2015 season on its Facebook page Wednesday afternoon. Next year’s season will bring to Comstock Hall (at U of L School of Music) the Los Angeles Piano Quartet, Johannes String Quartet, Amernet String Quartet, Emerson String Quartet playing the meatiest chamber works of Beethoven and Brahms, rarities like Respighi’s Il Tromanto, and two string quartets of Bartok.
Roughly, a third of the season is devoted to living composers. Of note are two works by Pierre Jalbert, whose music tends to shimmer and float above the audience. Speaking of shimmering Music from Copland House will present Ned Rorem‘s infectious Bright Music, and John Harbison‘s Songs America Loves to Sing and John Musto‘s Clarinet Sextet. Brooklyn Rider comes to Louisville (for the first time) for a bonus concert at Clifton Center in April of 2015.
