Chamber Music: INSPIRATIONS

At a Glance

Minnesota Orchestra musicians come together in small ensembles to perform cherished classics and innovative new music on Sunday afternoons in the Target Atrium.

Did You Know?

  • Composers often write their best music while traveling abroad, influenced by new surroundings, as was the case for both Dvořák and Hindemith. Listen and be inspired as a new Chamber Music season begins.
  • Mozart and Dvořák’s quintets are both written for a “viola quintet,” or a standard string quartet with the addition of one viola. Mozart was the first composer to establish this instrumentation; he himself was a violist!
  • Dvořák wrote his String Quintet in E-flat major while living in Spillville, Iowa, in 1893. It is often referred to as his American Quintet and was composed around the same time as his very popular American String Quartet.
  • Throughout his career, Hindemith composed a sonata for nearly every instrument in the orchestra. The Double Bass Sonata was one of the final ones in his collection, composed while he was on vacation in New Mexico. It was followed only by one other—his Sonata for Tuba and Piano.
