Hear some of Boston’s best virtuosi on an intimate scale and join them in lively roundtable discussions in comfortable, friendly, and eclectic surroundings. Last season’s salons featured various trios and quartets and included repertoire featuring both classics and new works by Mendelssohn, Mozart, Ibert, Tomassi, Vivaldi, Dvorak, and our own Steve Laven. We plan equally interesting and engaging works this year, and offer them on convenient weekday evenings and Sunday afternoons.
