Concert program includes music by Beethoven, Schubert, Saint Seans, and Mario Davidovsky

Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center returns to the Williams Center for the Arts for a performance at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 13.

Tickets are free for Lafayette students, $6 for students at LVAIC schools, $4 for faculty and staff, and $20 for the public. They can be obtained by calling the Williams Center box office at (610) 330-5009. The musicians will present a free talk about the evening’s program at 7 p.m. in the Williams Center, room 108.

Other performances in the 2009-10 Chamber Music series will be the Brentano String Quartet, March 31, $18, and two appearances by the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, with special guest pianist Angela Hewitt Feb. 5, $29, and with violinist Ryu Goto May 3, $29.

Entitled Generations of Masters, the program spans more than 200 years of music, including Beethoven’s Serenade for Flute, Violin, and Viola in D Major, opus 26; Camille Saint-Saens’ playful take on the Italian “Tarantella” dance, for flute, clarinet, and piano; Franz Schubert’s ever-popular Trout Quintet; and Mario Davidovsky’s evocative and luminescent Septet.

The ensemble includes five performers featured in last November’s Baroque Concertos program: violinist Arnaud Sussman, violist Paul Neubauer, cellist Fred Sherry, bassist Kurt Murocki, and flutist Tara Helen O’Connor. Other performers include clarinetist Jose Franch-Ballester and famed pianist Gilbert Kalish, who performed at Lafayette with Orpheus in its 1991 all-Ives program.

The 2009-2010 Performance Series at Lafayette College is supported in part by gifts from Friends of the Williams Center for the Arts; by provisions of the Josephine Chidsey Williams Endowment, the J. Mahlon and Grace Buck Fund, the Croasdale Fund, the Class of ’73 Fund, the Alan and Wendy Pesky Artist-in-Residence Program, the James Bradley Fund, and the Ed Brunswick Jazz Fund; and by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, the Dexter and Dorothy Baker Foundation, and New England Foundation for the Arts. Special thanks to the F.M. Kirby Foundation for its extraordinary support.
