Johannes Brahms intended his Op. 111 String Quintet to be his swan song, writing to his publisher, “with this letter you can bid farewell to my music.” And Brahms held nothing back, creating “…an extraordinary work, one of the finest in Brahms’s oeuvre and therefore all of chamber music: exuberant, elegant, subtle, original and unmistakably Brahms in nearly every bar.” In our final Celebrity Series, our renowned Heifetz faculty take their leave with Brahms, after a round of solo performances both brilliant and poignant.
A Friday night tradition in Staunton! Experience the world-renowned artistry of our virtuosic Heifetz Institute faculty members in carefully conceived 75-minute programs. Each concert is preceded by a complimentary Happy Hour at 5pm under the big Heifetz tent on nearby Page Terrace, designed to showcase the best regional wines and artisan foods.
