Concerts on Kentmere: Elegant melodies among the Pre-Raphaelites
Snow date: Sunday, February 19
In residence since 2009, Pyxis Piano Quartet returns for the Museum’s 2016–17 classical chamber music series. In the Pre-Raphaelite Galleries, guests will enjoy English composer Herbert Howells’ seldom-performed Piano Quartet in a minor and a Pyxis reprise of Antonin Dvořák’s magnificent Piano Quartet No. 2 in E-flat Major. Each concert is preceded by a short curator talk that connects the evening’s music to Museum exhibitions or artworks. The concerts feature coffee and desserts at intermission and the Thronson Café will be open for drinks and dinner by Toscana until 7:30 p.m. Seating is limited and all non-refundable tickets will be held at the door.
7:30 pm: Margaretta Frederick, Curator talk
8:00 pm: Pyxis Concert
