The season opens at Nichols Concert Hall, 1490 Chicago Ave. in Evanston on a celebratory note with a commission by composer Jim Stephenson, written in honor of local visual artist and longtime Rembrandt supporter Sandra Eiger Miller.
This exciting tribute is followed by a jewel of the 20th century by Franz Reizenstein, a child prodigy who grew into a respected composer and chamber musician greatly influenced by his studies with Hindemith and Vaughan Williams.
Closing the program is Schubert’s great Trout Quintet, one of the most familiar and best-loved works for chamber ensemble.
Guest artist Victor Santiago Asuncion, piano.
