HYANNIS – As part of the 2018 Cape Cod Chamber Music Festival, musicians from across the nation will present works from Mozart, Beethoven, and Schumann, during their ‘Germanic Tradition’ performances.

Though each featured composer is undeniably German, their music stands out individually. Mozart’s duo for violin and viola highlights a beautiful variety of melodies, and harmonies, between the two instruments.

Beethoven’s piano trio, written for Prince Lichnowsky, a Beethoven patron, is considered to be a result of his early period of composition.

Finally, Schumann’s quartet showcases various musical ideas and devices, such as counterpoint in the first movement, syncopation in the Scherzo, and more.

Tickets for the festival, which takes place August 14th at 7:30 pm at the Cotuit Center for the Arts, and on August 15th at 7:30 pm at the First Congregational Church in Chatham, can be purchased online or at the box office.
