The February issue of Naples Illustrated features Classic Chamber Concerts as Top Billing!
The classical music scene is alive and well on the Paradise Coast. Since 1995, Classic Chamber Concerts has been on a mission to bring world-class performers to Southwest Florida. This month, the Naples-based organization will stage two concerts at First United Methodist Church starring some of the genre’s top young acts. On February 10, 30-year-old violin virtuoso Benjamin Beilman will join forces with fellow millennial pianist Andrew Tyson to continue CCC’s survey of chamber works by Beethoven notes artistic director Michael Finn. The evening will include Beethoven’s Sonata in E-flat Major, Op. 12, No. 2, as well as pieces by Stravinsky, Debussy, and Saint Saens. Two weeks later, return to First United for eight-instrument compositions from Enescu, Shostakovich, and Mendelssohn. “Our February 24 program will feature two of America’s best string quartets, the Dover and Escher quartets, in a rare program of all-string octet music,” Finn adds.
