THE 2014-2015 SEASON

We are thrilled to unveil our new season of great music and inspiring performances!

We will present our March 15th concert in the fine acoustics of the sanctuary of the First United Methodist Church in downtown Albuquerque. The complex, dancing South African rhythms of David Bruceís Gumboots will be surrounded by the timeless melodies of Beethovenís Sonata in c minor for violin and piano and the lyricism and exuberance of Dvorakís beloved Piano Quintet.

ACS returns to First United Methodist Church for our April 26th concert, which employs music from South America and Europe to illustrate the influence great composers have had on each other. The young Argentinian composer Osvaldo Golijovís haunting Last Round is a memorial tribute to the tango master Astor Piazzolla, whose brilliant Tango Etude no. 3 for solo violin will also be featured. J.S. Bachís Concerto for Three Violins, which opens the concert, was performed by Dmitri Shostakovich (in a version for three pianos) in Leipzig in 1950 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Bachís death. Shostakovich combined many of Bachís compositional techniques with his own unique voice in his powerful, shattering Piano Trio no. 2.

Enjoy the Music!

"Distinctive and stylish, warm and lyrical playing by some
of New Mexico's premier musicians"
--D.S.Crafts, Albuquerque Journal

"They see themselves as friends playing for is intimate,
an experience in which the audience is drawn in and embraced by
the sound, the presence and the unique programming of this dedicated group"
C. Robbins, Albuquerque Tribune
