On WCRB In Concert with the Boston Symphony Chamber Players and Gewandhaus Quartet, a new alliance of two great orchestras takes form in chamber works by Haydn, Ligeti, Mendelssohn, and more.

On WCRB In Concert, pianist Thomas Adès is the anchor of two of Schubert's most iconic works, the deeply evocative and emotional "Winterreise,"  and the leisurely, carefree "Trout Quintet."
