The Paramount Chamber Players present “Of Bohemians and Princes” in 4 Tri-Cities venues this weekend
For the last concert of this season, The Paramount Chamber Players presents two great masterpieces. First, The Archduke Piano Trio, so named for its dedication to Beethoven’s good friend and mentor the Archduke Rudolph of Austria is recognized as one of the most transcendent works in all of chamber music for both its combination of spiritual and earth-bound qualities.
The second composition is Dvorak’s piano quartet op .87, a work filled with folk melodies and the sounds of gypsy rhythms. Brahms, who admitted a jealousy of Dvorak’s ability to pour out melody easily, championed Dvorak’s music. It’s no wonder that his music has been an audience favorite for more than one hundred years!
The Paramount Chamber Players welcomes two guest artists – cellist Sarah Kapps from Atlanta, GA and violist Daniel Lamas from New York, NY. Players appearing in the concert are Craig W. Combs, piano and George Figueroa, violin.
Performances are Thursday, May 3 at 7:30 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church in Kingsport, TN; Friday, Feb. 4 at 7:30 p.m. at Saint John’s Episcopal Church in Johnson City, TN; Saturday, Feb. 5 at 7:30 p.m. at the Paramount Center in Bristol, TN; and Sunday, Feb. 4 at 3:00 p.m. as part of the Spencer-Miller Memorial Concert Series at Sinking Spring Presbyterian Church in Abingdon, VA.

Tickets for the Spencer-Miller Memorial Concert Series performance on Sunday afternoon are available at the door for $10 for general admission.
