3 p.m.

Reading Room


The performance committee of the Athenaeum would like to invite all members to a winter concert in the Sawtelle Reading Room on Sunday December 2 at 3:00 pm.

Join Noree Chamber Soloists’ winter presentation of two chamber masterpieces, Mozart’s Divertimento for String Trio in E-flat Major, K. 563 and Ravel’s Sonata for Violin and Cello, both marked by exceptional scope, innovative instrumental writing, and emotional dignity. One of Mozart’s last chamber pieces, the intimate Divertimento is the most ambitious among his compositions for strings alone. Ravel paid homage to his compatriot Debussy by heeding to the latter’s notion of “depouillement” (economy of means) when he composed one of his largest and most challenging chamber works for just two string instruments, violin and cello.

A NY-based chamber group, the musicians of Noree Chamber Soloists are students and graduates of the Juilliard School, Curtis Institute, New England Conservatory of Music, and Manhattan School of Music.

Maurice Ravel (1875-1937), Sonata for Violin and Cello, M. 73 (1922)
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791), Divertimento for String Trio in E-flat Major, K. 563 (1788)

Seating is very limited. Please call (603) 431-2538 to make a reservation for this free event.
