The Smithsonian Chamber Music Society celebrates its 37th season with an appropriately eclectic repast, balancing familiar masterworks with undeservedly neglected oeuvres perdues.
In February, Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra concertmaster and Juilliard Historical Performance graduate program director Robert Mealy joins SCMS artistic director Slowik for a program of Bach sonatas.
One hour prior to each program, Kenneth Slowik, SCMS artistic director and recipient of the 2011 Smithsonian Secretary’s Distinguished Research Lecture Award, provides a pre-concert talk, shedding light on the glorious music and the life and times of the featured composers.
