After a heartwarming Jubileum concert, including a performance of the Schubert Octet, to celebrate Nancy Braithwaite’s 25 years of clarinet teaching at Codarts earlier this year, Codarts Classical Music inaugurated its Chamber Concert Series last night. I was delighted to open with the Mozart Oboe Quartet playing with Natasha Morozova (violin), Ron Ephrat (viola) and Herre-Jan Stegenga (cello). Herre-Jan Stegenga with Rob Broek (piano) then followed with an eloquent account of the Brahms E minor Cello Sonata and the evening finished with the wonderful First String Sextet of Brahms played by Natasha Morozova and Svetalana Pilipenko (violins), Ron Ephrat and Floor Feleus (violas), Jeroen den Herder and Marc Maricourt (celli).
The next concert will be at 19.00 on 3 December in the 6.35 Concert Hall, Codarts, Kruisplein, Rotterdam. The programme will include the Beethoven Septet and Dvorak Piano Quintet. Entry is free.
