Williams Chamber Players offer their second concert of the season, an exciting study in contrasts of composers, musicians, instrumentation, and genres.

Inspired by a recent visit by composer Melinda Wagner, Robert Phelps performs Arabesque for solo guitar.

Jacqueline DeVoe, flute; Carl Jenkins, oboe; Stephen Walt, bassoon offer Telemann’s Tafelmusik for flute, oboe, bassoon and continuo, with harpsichordist Edwin Lawrence.

Celebrating the refurbishment of the school’s harpsichord, Mr. Lawrence also presents the Harpsichord Concerto by Manuel de Falla along with his colleagues: Jacqueline DeVoe, flute; Carl Jenkins, oboe; Paul Green; clarinet, Muneko Otani, violin; Nathaniel Parke, cello.

Bass-baritone Keith Kibler presents Songs from Shakespeare’s Tempest, collaborating with lutist Matthew Wright, who is visiting the college while performing with the early music ensemble Seven Times Salt.

The final work of the evening is by the composer Amy Beach (1867 – 1944), whose extensive musical work represents an important contribution to American music. Piano Quintet in F# Minor op. 67 is presented by Muneko Otani and Benjamin Mygatt ’20, violin; Ah Ling Neu, viola; Ronald Feldman, cello; Elizabeth Wright, piano.

The Williams Chamber Players is a faculty chamber music ensemble at Williams. The ensemble offers performers and audiences the opportunity to explore chamber music over a range of periods and styles.
