The Amabile Flute Quartet

The second of our Chamber Music at The Playhouse concert series on January 11th gave us another wonderful evening, filling The Players Founders Room with beautiful people and with even more beautiful music!

Catherine Sherwin(flute), Michael J. McGillivray(violin), James Greer(viola) and Susan Clark Joul(cello) are all to be thanked and congratulated!

Their opening with Haydn's "London" Trio captured the audience, which was then entranced with selections from "Carmen" and Beethoven's String Trio in c minor.

After a pleasant intermission, with goodies provided by Harbortown Market, we heard some hauntingly beautiful Japanese music by Toshitsugu Ogihara. The duets for flute and violin were presented to perfection by Cathy and Mike.

And finally, we were treated to Mozart's Quartet in D Major for flute, violin, viola and cello. One certainly couldn't tell that Mozart didn't like the flute. The piece was wonderful.

Throughout the evening, I was particularly aware of the lack of noise from the notoriously sqeaky Players chairs.

I'm now looking forward with great anticipation to our next concert on February 8. Check out the details by clicking below.
