Chamber Music Showcase: Shostakovich, Martinu, & Arensky

A flight of performances. A richness of artists. From January 14–17, 2021, New England Conservatory will fill the air with the sounds of piano trios, string quartets, and more as part of its virtual Chamber Music Showcase. Performers include NEC's faculty of chamber music superstars, and the students coached by these great artists.

In today's concert, student ensembles demonstrate the music they have worked on with faculty during the Fall 2020 semester. These recitals include groups studying on-campus and remotely, with performances recorded in-person and using layering techniques.
