Brass fanfares from past and present ring out to open the Festival, performed by the “six superb brass players” of The Brass Project (Philadelphia Enquirer). The Artistic Directors, Aaron Wunsch and Julia Bruskin, perform music by Beethoven to celebrate the 250th anniversary of his birth, and the program concludes with Dvořák’s festive Piano Quartet in E-flat Major.
