We rounded out our 42nd season with a stellar review of two #chambermusic works performed by Escher String Quartet. The program opened with 20th-century Afro-English #composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s quintet in F-sharp minor for #clarinet and #strings. (The Escher was joined by clarinetist/Festival Co-Artistic Director Jon Manasse). "In the allegro energico first movement, Manasse’s tone was like warm caramel . . offset by the plump, juicy pizzicato of cellist Brook Speltz. The larghetto affettuoso second movement seemed to start spontaneously, with the high strings (violinist Adam Barnett-Hart, violinist Brendan Speltz, and violist Pierre Lapointe) entering like a ray of light . .
