Chameleon Arts Ensemble closes its milestone 25th anniversary chamber music season with a giant dose of joy. There are few works as irresistibly joyous as Schubert's Octet in F Major. He elevated the 18th century divertimento style to a supreme level, creating a towering celebration of instrumental splendor and one of the most beloved works in the repertoire. Paul Hindemith reimagines the style for the 20th century with his Kleine Kammermusik for wind quintet, and John Musto’s Divertimento offers an urban twist with nods to West Side Story and moods that range from brash to wistful, edgy to languid. Florence Price’s 1933 Fantasie for violin and piano is a remarkable fusion of post-Romantic music and African-American folksong and a window into a neglected voice.
