The Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum (PMPM) will host the concert Admiration and Friendship on Saturday, February 2, 2019 at 7:30pm in the East Gallery, the second in the Chamber Music Series for the Outer Cape.
Chamber Music for the Outer Cape, the Admiration and Friendship concert includes two works by composers whose friendship and admiration became legendary in the musical world of the 19th century – Johannes Brahms and Antonin Dvorak. It was in fact, Brahms’ comments and writings about Dvorak that established Dvorak’s first foothold in the minds of Europeans beyond the Czech borders. In the first half, the show will present the beloved Brahms Horn Trio where the horn replaces the cello with its lovely mellow tones. The second half will feature the brilliant bravura of Dvorak’s Piano Quartet in E flat opus 87, an excellent work to hear the endless melodies that poured from Dvorak’s pen.
The music series, a program of the PMPM, was conceived by a volunteer advisory group led by Dr. Craig Combs of Provincetown, an accomplished pianist who inspired the effort. The Chamber Music for the Outer Cape Volunteer Advisory Group includes Charles Berardesco, Dr. Combs, Dr. William Gannon, Jr., Allan McKinnon, Ken Okin, Charles Roberts and Jeffrey Thurston.
Tickets are $20 per person and are available on the PMPM website
