The Friends of Chamber Music present the Quartetto di Cremona
It is a particular joy to welcome another young and distinctive quartet to Playhouse stage. Named for the small city that was home to the great stringed instrument makers Amati and Stradivari, Quartetto di Cremona is the first Italian ensemble the Friends of Chamber Music have hosted in many years, and they are thrilled to have them share an all-Italian program of music with the audience. These pieces reveal the chamber music musings of composers often better known for orchestral or operatic works.
