Anything can happen (and it frequently does) when the sensational musicians of Decoda—alumni of the acclaimed Ensemble Connect—perform, whether it is works from the standard chamber-music repertoire or works written today. Their performances shatter traditional concert conventions—Decoda surprises and delights.
Stunning musicianship, daredevil programming, and some marvelous surprises are hallmarks of a Decoda performance—this concert has them all. In this eclectic program, hear the melodious splendor of Britten’s youthful Phantasy Quartet, the rambunctious energy of Prokofiev’s Quintet that depicts circus life, Wynton Marsalis’s new take on a classic tale, and David Bruce’s funky 21st-century revamped take on a Beethoven work.
