The Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum (PMPM) will host the concert Masterworks of Chamber Music, on Sunday, May 19, 2019, at 3pm in the East Gallery, the third in the chamber music series for the Outer Cape that was launched in the fall 2018. The mission of Chamber Music for the Outer Cape, a program of the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum, is to add the dimension of chamber music as a vital part of life in the Provincetown community.
In the final offerings of the 2018-2019 season, Chamber Music for the Outer Cape presents a program featuring compositions of historical importance. Since its first performance in 1843, Schumann’s Piano Quintet has never disappeared from the canon of frequently heard chamber works. Its rare combination of lyricism and angst was a pinnacle of its time. Juxtaposed against this powerful tapestry is the clarity and grace of Mozart’s piano trio in E major, K 542 – one of the first piano trios where the strings have equal importance to the piano. Rounding off the concert is a performance of J.S. Bach’s famous Concerto in A Major, BWV 1055 with English Horn as the solo instrument.
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 $25 per person and are available on the PMPM website
