10th Anniversary Season
“From Afar with Love”
During these trying and unprecedented times, Apex Concerts is committed to continue bringing “Chamber Music at Its Highest” to our community. We believe that through remote performances and Q&A sessions with the artists we can continue to engage with you, our fabulous audience and supporters. While it is true that the immediacy and thrill of live performances is hard to replicate in the virtual realm, we want to use this time to grow, learn and continue to enrich our lives through the great art of chamber music. We will continue to celebrate together what is the most unusual season. Welcome to Apex Concerts 10th Anniversary Season “From Afar with Love.”
On October 15, for the first virtual performance of our 10th season, we join the world-wide celebration of Beethoven’s 250th Anniversary and focusing on the three periods of his artistic life, as seen through the prism of works for cello and piano.
On November 12, we will spend a virtual evening celebrating two compositional giants of the early Romantic movement in Germany: Clara Wieck Schumann and Felix Mendelssohn. Both figures have experienced undue neglect in the concert halls of the 20th century: Clara, as a female composer, while Felix as a composer of Jewish origins. Yet, in the 21st century, the work of both composers, who also were very good friends, and pivotal figures in the musical circles of Germany of the mid-19th century, have undergone a reexamination.
