Love and Mirth - CSO Chamber Players

Presented by Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra at Music Hall, Cincinnati OH

Feb 21 2016
Love and Mirth - CSO Chamber Players

ON STAGE Music Hall is a unique, immersive experience with the CSO Chamber Players and YOU. Get up close and musical as you sit in-the-round with the CSO Chamber Players on Music Hall’s stage. Feel every note, sense every breath and connect with the music and musicians in this uniquely intimate setting.

Each instrument has a chance to shine in this captivating program! We begin with Hasenöhrl’s ingenious adaptation for only five players (from 100+!) of Strauss’ tale of the “merry prankster” Eulenspiegel.

Of the intensely expressive Clarinet Trio, a friend of Brahms’ wrote, “It is as though the instruments were in love with each other.” The program closes with Brahms at his playful and lyrical best, from the opening hunting calls and polka-like rhythms to the jubilant finale.
