The Chamber Music Society of Minnesota (CMSM) violinist and artistic co-director Ariana Kim, along with pianist Ieva Jokubaviciute, will perform the Minnesota premiere of Maksimal for violin and piano at its next concert on May 7. A modern work by American composer David Tempkin, Maksimal was inspired by the music of Beethoven. Tempkin is known for crafting works filled with rich details and visceral beauty. The concert will be held at the Sundin Music Hall on the campus of Hamline University.
The program will also feature the E-flat Piano Quintet by Robert Schumann, with Kim on violin and Jocumbaviciute on piano, joined by Young-Nam Kim (violin), Sally Chisholm (viola), and Jane Cords O’Hara (cello).
Since its founding some 20 years ago, the CMSM has held superb chamber music events, featuring world-renowned guests and Minnesota’s finest artists. In addition to its subscription concerts, the CMSM presents master classes and workshops by distinguished guest artists. Its annual Northern Lights Chamber Music Institute, the educational arm of the CMSM, convenes at Camp Vermillion in Cook, Minnesota, each August.
Tickets for the May 7 are $25 ($20 senior and $15 student) and are available at the link above.
