Recalling the Birds

Sunday, September 13 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm CDT

Virtual Event
NEXUS Chamber Music group shot

Watch a rebroadcast of the delightful “Call of the Birds” concert from the 2019 NEXUS Chamber Music Festival, along with newly-released artist profiles of Victor Asuncion, Alexi Kenney, and Zoë Martin-Doike. Don’t miss the post-concert Zoom hang with artists!

In late summer of 2018 and 2019, Guarneri Hall welcomed NEXUS Chamber Music Chicago to the Hall for its first and second annual chamber music festivals. Each season, NEXUS has programmed a wide variety of chamber works, from standard classics to lesser-known pieces that justly deserve a place in the canon. Co-artistic directors Brian Hong and Alexander Hersh have gathered a roster of talented young musicians from all over the world. In 2019, NEXUS also extended fellowships to two outstanding Chicago College of the Performing Arts students, who joined guest artists on several programs including this one.


Joseph Haydn: String Quartet Op. 33 No. 3 in C major, “The Bird”
Toru Takemitsu: A Bird Came Down the Walk for Viola and Piano
Gabriel Fauré: Romance for Cello and Piano
Olivier Messiaen: Theme and Variations for Violin and Piano
Robert Schumann: Piano Quintet in E-flat major, Op. 44


Brian Hong, violin
Alexi Kenney, violin
Zoë Martin-Doike, viola
Alexander Hersh, cello
Victor Asuncion, piano

Fellow: Gabriela Lara, violin

Program followed by newly-released artist profiles. Subject to minor changes.
