High Summer Suggestion: Mostly Viennese

Music at Eden’s Edge to perform at Cape Ann Museum

Cape Ann’s resident chamber music ensemble, Music at Eden’s Edge, will present a concert at Cape Ann Museum on Saturday, August 2, 2008 at 8:00 p.m. as part of its Summer Chamber Music Series. High Summer Suggestion: Mostly Viennese celebrates the elegant musical art of Vienna. The concert balances passion, depth and delight in two great Classical Piano Trios, Mozart E Major, K. 542 and Haydn C Minor. Juxtaposed with the fiery and bold Strauss Cello Sonata, this program presents a multi-faceted profile of Vienna’s rich musical life, from its own Haydn and Mozart to the influential late German Romantic, Richard Strauss. Artists are Emmanuel Feldman, Cello; Maria Benotti, Violin; and Paul Orgel, Piano.

The Museum will open at 6:30 p.m. on the evening of the performance so that audience members will have the opportunity to visit the Museum’s galleries and special exhibitions.

Admission for this performance is $20.00 per person or $18.00 for Museum members/seniors/students. A rate of $65.00 is offered for families. Reservations are required and seats can be reserved by calling the Museum at 978-283-0455.
