The Chicago Ensemble is known for its eclectic programs that combine masterworks with surprising selections by composers past and present. Join International House for a champagne reception to toast the conclusion of their 85th Anniversary year-long celebration and enjoy a chamber music concert led by virtuoso pianist Gerald Rizzer, AB’62, and members of the Chicago Ensemble. For its 41st season finale, The Chicago Ensemble departs from off-the-beaten-track programming which has been its hallmark, offering instead two towering masterworks of the piano trio literature: Beethoven’s Trio No. 1 in Eb Major, op. 1 no. 1, and Brahms’ Trio No. 2 in C Major, op. 87.
