We close our season with a musical voyage to Napoleonic France and Biedermeier Vienna, in a chamber performance featuring ABO’s principal players. There will be Beethoven from before he sounded like Beethoven, and a quirky quintet by his childhood friend Antoine Reicha, the so-called “Father of the Wind Quintet.” Finally, we’ll end with music by Louis Spohr, a virtuoso violinist and student of Beethoven, whose Gran Nonetto is a perfect blend of Classical balance and Romantic passion.
Who are we?
Never been interested in classical music? Maybe you've been listening to the wrong century! We invite you to come and give us a shot—you might just find there's a little less dust on our music than you think. We're breathing new life into some of the most beautiful music ever written, and we're doing it with a youthful energy and colorful uniqueness that you'd expect from an Austin born-and-bred ensemble.
