If you love dead, white, male German composers as much as we do – and are not (yet!) familiar with the greatness of Johann Nepomuk Hummel – this concert exploring the arbitrariness of fame is for you. In 1819, Hummel organized a concert for the world-premiere performance of one of his works; for the occasion, Schubert wrote the Trout Quintet for the same combination of instruments. Guess which piece is all anyone remembers? Salastina recreates this concert – so that you can be the judge of whether or not posterity was fair to jettison a composer with a name as awesome as “Nepomuk.” Wine and sachertorte reception to follow.

Program: Johann Nepomuk Hummel: Piano Quintet Op. 87 Franz Schubert: Piano Quintet D 667 “The Trout” And more…

Artists: Kevin Kumar and Maia Jasper White, Co-Artistic Directors and Violinists Meredith Crawford, Resident Violist Yoshika Masuda, Resident Cellist Ted Botsford, Guest Bassist HyeJin Kim, Resident Pianist Benjamin Smolen, Resident Flutist Brian Lauritzen, Resident Host
