Chamber Music in the Target Atrium

Winter Chamber Music Concert

in the Target Atrium

Orchestra Hall

~1.5 hrs including a 15 min intermission

Our chamber music concerts in the Target Atrium provide an intimate setting and unique opportunity to hear Minnesota Orchestra musicians perform in small ensembles.

A Few Things to Know

  • The title of Jet Whistle was inspired by a technique used by flute players during fast glissandi, which reminded the composer of the sounds of a jet plane.
  • Minnesota Orchestra Principal Flute Adam Kuenzel and bassist Matthew Frischman join the percussion section for Steve Reich's creative percussion-only piece, Music for Pieces of Wood.
  • Franz Schubert was so moved by Beethoven's Septet that he crafted his own, adding one violin part and expanding the virtuosity and drama from the standard Beethoven had set nearly 25 years earlier.
