Whidbey Island Music Festival Presents-
Bohemian Rhapsody: The classical oboe quartet from Krommer to Mozart
From Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven and Schubert and onwards to Brahms, Viennese classicism has become synonymous with “classical music”. Vienna drew composers from far and wide lured to the Imperial City by hopes for royal patronage, wealthy aristocratic patrons and discerning audiences. However, classicism was alive and well in other places as well, as in nearby Bohemia, home to a thriving community of musicians and composers. This program explores the uniquely Bohemian sound of classical chamber music repertoire for oboe and strings, with works by Krommer, Druschetzky, Gassmann as well as Mozart’s sublime oboe quartet in F major. WIMF is thrilled to welcome Debra Nagy, America’s leading historical oboist, back to Whidbey Island as well as new WIMF artists Cynthia Keiko Black (viola) and Eva Lymenstull (cello) along with Tekla Cunningham, violin.
