On WCRB In Concert with the Boston Chamber Music Society, an ode to Concord is bookended by a dazzling trio by Beethoven and an inventive quartet by Brahms. Daniel Godfrey’s Ad Concordiam, or “toward harmony,"—a 2018 BCMS commission—aims to embody the rich history and "philosophical ethos" of Concord, Massachusetts.
