This weekend offers concerts of Brahms, Mendelssohn and other well-known composers by such worthy ensembles as the New World Symphony and Kalichstein Laredo Robinson Trio.
But if you want to experience a more unusual concert, you could cross the bridge to the Town of Palm Beach, enter the elegant rooms of the Society of the Four Arts and take in a concert Sunday by the American Chamber Players.
This well-regarded ensemble, founded in 1985 from participants in The Library of Congress Summer Chamber Festival, will perform a program consisting largely of neglected works from the 19th and early 20th centuries. Among the composers heard will be Louise Farrenc, a 19th-century French composer, represented by her Trio in E Minor for Flute, Cello, and Piano. From Max Bruch, the German composer known today almost entirely for his Violin Concerto No. 1, will be heard the Quintet in G Minor for Piano and Strings. The ensemble will also perform the Poem for Flute and Piano by the American composer Charles Tomlinson Griffes and Beethoven’s Trio in G Major for violin, and viola, and cello, Op. 9, No. 1.
The American Chamber Players perform 3 p.m. Sunday at the Society of the Four Arts, 2 Four Arts Plaza, Palm Beach. 561-655-7226; fourarts.org.
