Composer, broadcaster, and documentarian Gerard McBurney, whom Chicago Symphony patrons will remember as the creative director of the popular Beyond the Score series, delves deep into the Chamber Music Intensive’s theme of Romantic-era music in an engaging lecture/discussion. With us on hand to perform excerpts from Ravel’s iconic string quartet as a point of departure, McBurney offers a colorful contextualization of this essential period in music history.
