If you’ve attended a Palladium Chamber Players concert, you know that our ensemble is composed of some of the country’s finest chamber musicians.
But just to prove it, please pick up this week’s New Yorker magazine. There on Page 6 is a full page photo of two members of our handsome quartet – Ed Arron and Jeewon Park. The husband and wife team are stars in New York chamber circles and the photo was highlighting their appearance at the Caramoor Festival, where chamber music is a staple. Last year, Jeewon was featured in the New York Times.
Here’s what The New Yorker said:
Every summer, Caramoor, the most elegant of the Northeastern music festivals, offers concerts devoted to opera, orchestral music, roots music, and jazz. But since the festival’s founding, at the close of the Second World War, chamber music has been a vital part of the enterprise. In recent years, the quietly charismatic cellist Edward Arron (pictured above, with his wife, the pianist Jeewon Park) has been a major player here; this week, he joins several fellow-alumni of the festival’s prestigious young-instrumentalists program in one of his “Edward Arron and Friends” concerts. They perform two intimately connected pieces: chamber versions of Strauss’s “Metamorphosen,” a threnody originally written for string orchestra, and of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3, “Eroica,” which Strauss quotes in his own work.
Ed and Jeewon, along with Jeff Multer, Danielle Farina, will be back next season for FOUR concerts. Kickoff show is Nov. 18, followed by 2016 shows on January 13, Feb. 17 and March 23. Season subscriptions will go on sale in September. Look for details coming soon at mypalladium.org.
