The York Chamber Players, comprised of York College faculty and guest artists, will perform a concert of chamber music for four-hands piano and four voices at 7:30 p.m. Friday in DeMeester Recital Hall on the York College campus.
The combination of six musicians and one piano was most famously employed by Johannes Brahms in his song cycle “Liebesliederwaltzer,” composed in 1869, and later a second set of “Neue Liebesliederwalzer” in 1874. Loosely translated, these "New Love Song Waltzes" feature various European folk song texts and are charming musical miniatures written in the style of the traditional “Ländler” waltz.
DeMeester Recital Hall is located in Evelyn and Earle Wolf Hall near the Country Club Road entrance to the YCP Main Campus.
