Night Music: The Killer B's

  • St. Stephen's Episcopal Church 19 South 10th Street Philadelphia, PA 19107 (map)

Presented by Night Music

If you enjoy music by the traditional Three B’s – Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms – you’ll love Night Music’s wide-ranging program of chamber music by the Four B’s: Bach (one of Johann Sebastian’s sons), Beethoven, Boccherini, and Brahms. Featured works include Beethoven’s beloved Serenade for flute, violin, and viola, Brahms’s “Hymn in Veneration of the Great Joachim,” and Boccherini’s string quintet in B-flat major with double bass.

About Night Music:

Night Music is a Philadelphia-based chamber ensemble dedicated to exploring and performing music of the Revolutionary era, roughly 1760 to 1825. Their repertory ranges from duos and trios to large-scale chamber works combining strings and winds, such as the imaginative symphony arrangements that were so popular around 1800, to concertos, cantatas, and concert arias.

Night Music musicians are among the country's leading players specializing in historically-informed performance. They perform with and hold leadership positions in many prominent period-instrument ensembles, including Philadelphia's Tempesta di Mare, Bach Collegium, and Franklin Quartet, and, farther afield, the Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra, the Handel & Haydn Society, Trinity Baroque Orchestra, Kleine Kammermusik, NYS Baroque, and the Washington Bach Consort.
