Tempest in C Minor
The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center
The 24 keys in music mysteriously possess unmistakable personalities. Like human beings, some are more suited to one occasion than another. For whatever reason, C minor (the dark side of C major) has often been the key of choice for composers in stormy moods. Join us for Beethoven, Brahms, and Fauré at their turbulent best.
