The Smithsonian Chamber Music Society celebrates its 35th season with an appropriately eclectic repast, balancing familiar masterworks with undeservedly neglected oeuvres perdues.
With the versatile Mark Fewer leading this program, enjoy 17th-century solo sonatas and two sonically distinctive late-19th-century chamber masterpieces, Dvorak’s Bagatelles (in their original scoring with harmonium), and Arensky’s Second String Quartet (in its original version with one violin, one viola, and two celli).
