No composer embodied the blend of strict protocol and evocative sensuality of 18th century Spain better than Luigi Boccherini, court composer to Infante Luis Antonio of Spain.  The music of American composer Brian Nabors draws from combinations of Jazz Funk, R&B, and Gospel with the modern flair of contemporary classical music. These worlds collide in spectacular program of string chamber music that includes the world premiere of a quintet commissioned from Nabors by CMSCVA for our 2022-23 season.

The program includes Luigi Boccherini’s famous “Fandango” quintet, Spanish string quartets, and the world premiere of a new cello quintet by American composer Brian Nabors.

Musicians performing on this concert are the Cramer String Quartet (violinists Jessica park and Kate Goddard, violist Annie Garlid, and cellist Michael Unterman), guitarist Cameron Welke, and cellist James Wilson.
