Programs & Events
Fabbri Chamber Concerts
Launched in October 1999, Fabbri Chamber Concerts presents an annual series of three concerts at the House of the Redeemer, offering exciting and creative programs played by the finest artists. Past performances have included the world-renowned artists Stanley Drucker, clarinetist; Andre Emelianoff, cellist; and Carol Wincenc, flutist. Pianist and Artistic Director of the series, Kazuko Hayami, praised by the New York Times for playing that “danced and glittered deliciously,” frequently joins the performances.
Presented in an ideal chamber music setting, the concerts take place in the elegant wood-paneled Italian Renaissance library of the House of the Redeemer. This beautiful space with its warm acoustics, the brief introductory remarks offered for each piece, and the opportunity to meet the artists at a reception following the concert allow audiences to share a unique and intimate musical salon experience.
The House has been noted by the New York Times as embodying “the artisanship of a bygone era.” The House and its library were first opened with a private recital by violinist Fritz Kreisler in 1917. Concerts were often performed in the library while Mrs. Fabbri was in residence. The Fabbri Chamber Concerts continues the musical tradition begun by the Fabbri family.
For its first concert of the 2022-2023 season, Fabbri Chamber Concerts is thrilled to present the American String Quartet (Peter Winograd – violin; Laurie Carney – violin; Daniel Avshalomov – viola; Wolfram Koessel – cello). Internationally recognized as one of the world’s finest quartets, the ASQ is famous for its “luxurious and beautifully sculpted performances” (The New York Times). Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear masterpieces of the quartet repertoire in our intimate Renaissance Library. The American String Quartet, in collaboration with poet and journalist Tom Sleigh, weave words and music together in a meditation on human conflict and healing the wounds of war in a program of Bach, Barber, Bartok, Shostakovich and Beethoven. The program is 90 minutes long, including a 10-minute intermission. Tickets: $40. Light refreshments to follow. Tickets are available through Eventbrite.
