Bedford Chamber Concerts is offering a full season of chamber concerts in 2021/2022. We are delighted to be back with live performances!
Bedford Chamber Concerts has for the past 20 years presented great music of the baroque, classical and romantic eras, spiced occasionally with music of the twentieth century or new music composed by our Music Director, Anthony Newman.
As in the past, our concerts will offer a wide range of musical experiences. We have adjusted the number of musicians and have put in place additional protections for the health of our audience and musicians.
The May concert features works by Johannes Brahms and including the Violin Sonata No. 3 in D-Minor, Op. 108 and Camille Saint-Saens' Piano Trio No. 1 in F Op. 18 played by our music director Anthony Newman on piano and Bedford Chamber ensemble players Renee Jolles on violin and Alexis Gerlach on cello.
For the health and safety of all, proof of vaccination is required for our concerts.
We look forward to seeing you!
Mr. Newman, one of America’s leading classical musicians, is internationally recognized for his contributions as organist, harpsichordist, composer, conductor, musicologist and Bach specialist. Among more than 170 recordings, his performance of Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto was named Stereo Review’s “Record of the Year” in 1989 and his collaboration with Wynton Marsalis, In Gabriel’s Garden, in which Mr. Newman conducted the English Chamber Orchestra, was the best-selling classical CD of 1997. He has been lauded as the “high priest of the harpsichord” by Time Magazine and “high priest of Bach” by Mr. Marsalis.
