PianoFest is the long-running keyboard spectacular at Roosevelt University, and we’re teaming up with two of our favorite pianists in Chicago for a characteristically new-old Spektral program.
Schumann - Piano Quintet in E-flat major, Op. 44
Anthony Cheung - Bagatelles
This concert is FREE and open to the public
So this is the concert for you folks who missed our Ear Taxi show and have been weeping in a darkened bedroom ever since. If you haven’t had a chance to see a show at Northwestern University’s Galvin Hall, you are in for some serious acoustic gratification. It may very well be the best-sounding chamber music hall in the city, and the back of the stage is literally a window to the Chicago skyline.

Tomeka Reid - Prospective Dwellers
Samuel Adams - Quartet Movement
George Lewis - String Quartet 1.5: Experiments in Living
Mikel Kuehn - String Quartet No. 1 "If on a winter's night..."
Mozart offers us such a specific flavor of joy, even ecstasy, and so it is at least a little bit odd that one of his sunniest quartets gets shortchanged on stage time. By now you know that Mozart died a poor and unhappy man, or at least that F Murray Abraham was constantly cramping his style.
THIS EVENT IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – String Quartet in D major, K499 "Hoffmeister"
Samuel Adams – Quartet Movement
Anthony Cheung – Bagatelles
