2017-2018 Season

Music Among Friends

"Music among friends." For us, that means the extraordinary experience of sharing live chamber music performances together as an audience. In Chamber Music: A Listener's Guide, James M. Keller writes, "The musicians are wrapped in a web of intense communication with one another, and their parts, never so numerous as to confuse, project with a clarity that draws listeners in as rapt eavesdroppers on the conversation."

 

For over six decades, Chamber Music Tulsa has shared the transformative power of chamber music with performers and audiences alike. I hope you will join us for another stellar season.

Listen. Engage. Transform.

From the Performers:

"Our friendship has allowed us to enjoy life as a string quartet quite a bit, and we believe that music thrives when musicians are happy, confident, and enjoying each other's company on and off the stage."

ASBJØRN NØRGAARD,

violinist of the Danish String Quartet

"We are four people who are very comfortable in each other's company. With over 80 concerts a year, worldwide, we spend more time together than with our families."

EDWARD DUSINBERRE,

violinist of the Takács Quartet

"Jörg, Christoph, and I have been close friends for 20 years, and we are connected by more than just playing music together. Lots of nights, intoxicated by music, we philosophized about life, love, and - of course - art."

ALEXANDER GLÜCKSMANN,

clarinetist of Ensemble 4.1
