Pierre Tourville Joins Liebesfreud - March 1, 2014

Liebesfreud anticipates the privilege and joy of yet another collaboration with an esteemed colleague.
Pierre Tourville has graciously agreed to join us to present one of Mozart's great and masterful Viola Quintets. Monsieur Tourville has selected the C minor quintet, originally conceived by Mozart for an octet of winds. 
The Philadelphia Orchestra, under Yannick Nézet-Séguin, will be in the midst of a week long Mozart Festival (see www.PhilOrch.org) so M. Tourville and Liebesfreud offer this work to give lovers of Mozart one more cause for celebration. 
The program will open with two Dvorak love songs. 
(more details on the 'calendar' page) 

Better Late than ... - February 2, 2014

Probably without his inestimable contribution in the Opera genre, Giuseppe Verdi would not belong in the pantheon of great composers. 
Still though, last year Liebesfreud was so looking forward to celebrating -  with the rest of the world - the bicentennial of his birth...  especially because his STRING QUARTET -unjustly neglected! - is a truly great work of genius.
Some of you may remember our disappointment when we had to postpone its [November 2013] performance because Dave was recovering from a hand injury....
This month's 'Last Fridays' concert gives us the opportunity to celebrate, albeit belatedly, this man's single - and singular - string quartet offering.
Please come join us.

Schubert Anniversary - January 18, 2014

Philadelphia favorite, cellist Vivian Barton, joins Liebesfreud (again!) to help us celebrate this Schubert anniversary with that master's sublime C major Quintet.
The ACADEMY OF VOCAL ARTS (AVA) has graciously offered to host this special - and our 60th! - free "Last Fridays" concert.
To our loyal Art Alliance audience: AVA is  just a 5 minute walk up Spruce Street (at 1920).
(The program will begin at 5:45 to allow time for those who haven't seen this update.)
The concert will be over before 7:00.
