The Camerata RCO brings the magnificent talents of Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra to the realm of chamber music. Musicians from the orchestra band together to perform some of their favorite chamber music on their first American tour. This is a wonderful opportunity to hear the music of Hummel, Beethoven’s near-contemporary, alongside one of the pillars of Beethoven’s early chamber music. Beethoven may have complained about his septet’s popularity, but audiences have loved it from the beginning.

HUMMEL

Clarinet Quartet in E-flat major, S.78

BEETHOVEN

Septet in E-flat major, op. 20
