Music Cincinnati: Linton Chamber Music Series
Mon, 18 Jun 2018

Coming up this Sunday, June 24 at 8pm, 90.9 WGUC presents its Music Cincinnati series, this month spotlighting the Linton Chamber Music Series. Just what exactly is Linton and what can listeners expect to hear on this special from 90.9?

Linton Chamber Music Series was founded nearly 40 years ago by former Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra Principal Clarinetist Dick Waller, who once described his vision for the series to create a format for ďmusic-making among friends.Ē Under the artistic leadership of Sharon Robinson and Jaime Laredo, Linton promotes community interest in chamber music, bringing Cincinnati world-class musicians to perform in intimate settings. The series takes place Sunday afternoons at the First Unitarian Church on Linton Street (the seriesí namesake) and then an encore performance on Mondays at Congregation Beth Adam in Loveland. The series often highlights musicians from the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra in a chamber music setting, as well as world-renown artists including the Ehnes Quartet and Peter Serkin Ė both featured on this monthís Music Cincinnati program.

What can you expect to hear this Sunday? The Music Cincinnati broadcast will feature three works that appeared during Lintonís 2017-2018 season. Mozartís Quintet for Clarinet and Strings in A Major is performed by the Ehnes Quartet with Stephen Williamson of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra on clarinet from their concert on October 30, 2017. Following that, itís Three Romances by Clara Schumann, some of her last compositions ever written! These are performed by up-and-coming artists Elena Urioste and Tom Poster who made their Linton debut February 11, 2018. Finally, itís the Quintet for Piano and Strings in F minor by Johannes Brahms. This was featured on Lintonís 2017 season opener and featured legendary pianist Peter Serkin, along with Linton Artistic Directors Jaime Laredo and Sharon Robinson. Audience favorite Bella Hristova returns for this concert along with New York Philharmonic violist Cynthia Phelps.
