Bridgehampton Chamber Music’s BCM Spring Series

BCM Spring, the annual series from Bridgehampton Chamber Music, Long Island’s longest-running classical music festival, welcomes spring in 2024 with three concerts, including a harp program, delectable French repertoire, and Mozart gems featuring some of the finest chamber musicians performing today.

An April 13 concert puts the harp at center stage with music by 19th- and 20th-century French composers Jean Françaix, Camille Saint-Saëns, and Albert Roussel, alongside a rarely heard sonata by Italian Nino Rota (composer of the score of “The Godfather”). On May 4, a work for winds and piano by young New Zealand composer Salina Fisher joins Mozart’s Quintet for Piano and Winds and Francis Poulenc’s Sextet for Piano and Winds. And on the May 18 program, great piano quartets by Mozart and Dvořák bookend another early-20th-century French gem by Philippe Gaubert.
