Mondavi Center Presents
Academy of St Martin in the Fields Chamber Ensemble
Following multiple sold-out Jackson Hall performances of the full orchestra, the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields returns with its renowned Chamber Ensemble.
Founded in 1967, the Ensemble is drawn from the principal players of the orchestra and plays in multiple configurations under Academy Director/Leader Tomo Keller. The rich program includes Britten’s lustrous arrangement of a 17th century Purcell piece, the beguiling Nielsen quintet Serenata in vano, a rare, haunting piece by Irish composer Ferguson capped off by Beethoven’s Septet.
Run Time: 1hr and 25min plus a 20min intermission.
