Chamber Music Syllabus

Below is hopefully a fairly complete list of chamber works I’ve performed and coached during the course of my career.

Chamber Music Syllabus

Commission/world premiere: *
Recorded: R

My chamber music background began with my studies at the Curtis Institute of Music with members of the Guarneri Quartet, Beaux Arts Trio, Budapest Quartet and Felix Galimir (who worked with Ravel, Schoenberg, Berg, Webern and Bartok among others). In my 40+ years of chamber performance, I’ve been a member of the Muir Quartet (founding cellist), Tempest Trio, Concord Chamber Players, and guest artist with numerous chamber music societies worldwide in over 2,000 concerts throughout North America, Europe and Asia. Listed below are works I’ve performed (with the exception of some of the Haydn Quartets, all of which I’ve taught or surveyed in my Haydn seminar class).
