Local Chamber Music, World-Class Fare

A Preview of a Friends of Music Series at Sleepy Hollow High School

CHAMBER music long ago left the chamber, migrating to the concert hall and all manner of modest stages. But even in this age of musical democratization, it is noteworthy when ordinary music lovers year after year band together to bring first-rate chamber fare to their communities. That is what Friends of Music has done.

The Carducci String Quartet

Juilliard Baroque

With little fanfare, this group — a single-minded, self-renewing collection of volunteers who live in Westchester County — has, for nearly six decades, presented established and emerging artists in a concert series that arguably rivals some of the best. And it has done so in unassuming locations like schools in Croton, Briarcliff Manor, Ossining, Pleasantville and Sleepy Hollow, where the series has taken up residence in the high school.

Betsy Shaw Weiner, who began as a subscriber to the concert series and is now the group’s president, attributed its ability to attract world-class performers in part to a reputation, slowly and steadily built, among managers and agents who know their artists will receive a respectful presentation before a knowledgeable audience. For its part, she said, the audience, whose ranks now include about 500 subscribers, has generously supported the concerts.

This season, the concerts have presented the Emerson String QuartetTrio Con Brio Copenhagen and, in solo performance, the up-and-coming pianist Charlie Albright. Over the next six weeks, the format will expand with the appearances of the Carducci String Quartet; the cellist Zuill Bailey, playing solo and in duo with the pianist Navah Perlman; and, closing the season, Juilliard Baroque, which, at 12 pieces, will be the largest aggregation of musicians yet on a Friends of Music stage.

Ms. Weiner acknowledged that the series’ range of repertory does not always match the diversity of its formats. While it occasionally programs recently composed works, she said, “we’re still trying to draw the audience into the 20th century.” The newest, and possibly most adventurous, piece scheduled for the rest of this season is Shostakovich’s String Quartet No. 3, a postwar commentary on conflict. It will join works by Haydn, Brahms, Chopin and Bach, whose writing falls squarely in the audience’s comfort zone, though the Juilliard group’s informed approach to it may not.

In fact, it is often the performances or performers more than the repertoire that generate the most curiosity. The Carducci quartet, for example, is made up of two married couples — one, the first violinist Matthew Denton and the cellist Emma Denton; the other, the violist Eoin Schmidt-Martin and the second violinist Michelle Fleming — making for a personal dynamic that bears watching.

“You would be forgiven for expecting that the two couples would always have their own shared ideas and it would be one couple against the other,” Mr. Schmidt-Martin said. But the quartet probably agreed more readily about matters of interpretation than did groups with weaker personal ties, he said, noting that the Carducci musicians had with comparative ease found common ground on the sensitive issue of reining in the high-speed fortissimo, and thus tempering the melodrama, in the Shostakovich.

As with the Carducci quartet, which has had no personnel changes for about eight years, the personal relationship between Ms. Perlman and Mr. Bailey is reflected in their performances. Ms. Perlman said that she and Mr. Bailey, who have been playing together for 15 years, had developed a system of “checks and balances” so that “if one person is feeling in revved-up gear, the other person can, when appropriate, tamp them down.” Some moderating of “youthful excitedness” had come naturally with age, she added, notably on Brahms’s intense Sonata for Cello and Piano in E minor, which is on the Sleepy Hollow play list.

Mr. Bailey said that a period of personal and professional growth had paralleled the evolution of his relationship with Ms. Perlman, starting with their meeting at a music festival in 1997 — “It was fate that I met her at that very moment,” he said — and continuing to this day. She has, he said, offered many insights on life and the turning of a musical phrase, some of them gleaned from her father, the violin legend Itzhak Perlman. All of which Mr. Bailey has applied to solo efforts like his chart-topping recordings of the Bach cello suites in 2010. He will open the Sleepy Hollow concert with Suite No. 3.

The kind of mature relationship Mr. Bailey and Ms. Perlman enjoy is still taking shape for Juilliard Baroque, the school’s newest faculty performing unit, now in its third full season. With nine high-powered period-instrument specialists on the roster, sorting through the complexities of working relationships can be a demanding affair — one that may be slightly more complicated for the Sleepy Hollow concert, the group’s first foray into Westchester, when three Juilliard graduate students will join the current and former faculty members. Sandra Miller, the group’s flutist, said that Juilliard Baroque, which has earned accolades on stages from Madrid to Manhattan, is molding itself into a true ensemble. Still, Baroque fare performed to period standards — for this all-Bach program Ms. Miller will use a reproduction of a mid-18th-century Grenadilla wood flute — is a kind of test for the programming aspirations of Friends of Music.

Just as the contemporary repertory is often a stretch for the Friends audience, Ms. Weiner said, so is a historically informed performance. Nonetheless, the possibility of drawing new people to the series outweighed any potential down side.

“When the word gets out,” she said, “there are Baroque music groupies who I hope will show up.”

Friends of Music presents the Carducci String Quartet on April 14; Zuill Bailey and Navah Perlman on April 28; Juilliard Baroque on May 12. All concerts are at 8 p.m. at Sleepy Hollow High School, 210 North Broadway. Tickets: adults, $30 for each concert; students, $15 (free for Carducci concert).
