Old meets new as the masterful Sheffield Chamber Players light up the c. 1781 Cabot House with quartets by Igor Stravinsky, Quinn Mason, and Claude Debussy. Each piece on this program is bursting with motion, and conjures up the most “fantastical of voyages.”

Sheffield Chamber Players
3 Pieces for String Quartet Igor Stravinsky (1882-1971)

A rising group on the regional classical music scene, Sheffield Chamber Players was founded in 2014 on the belief that experiencing chamber music in the intimate settings for which it was written profoundly changes the way listeners respond to music, and to each other. In close proximity to musicians, one can hear the expressive subtleties of a performance with unprecedented clarity. Sheffield’s musical experiences are enhanced by giving audiences details about composers’ backgrounds, and stories behind the music.
