Live from Longy

9.22.17 Book Signing: Is It So If You Think It's So?

Edward M. Pickman Concert Hall, 7:00 pm

Join us for the launch of Longy piano faculty, Robert Merfeld’s new book: Is It So If You Think It's So?: Thoughts on Playing & Teaching Chamber Music - An Anti-Manual. This book offers an eye-opening, refreshing perspective on coaching and performing chamber music.

9.23.17 Radius Ensemble: Glimmer

Edward M. Pickman Concert Hall, 8:00 pm

SAN MARTIN – Objets Trouvés
NORMAN – Light Screens
FRANÇAIX – Wind Quartet
DVOŘÁK – String Quintet No. 2 in G major, Op.77

After years of working in virtual obscurity, Dvořák wrote his second string quintet in 1875. Suddenly, he found himself on the cusp of fame, coming to the attention of Johannes Brahms, who would change the direction of his life. Frank Lloyd Wright is known not only for his houses, but also the decorative stained glass windows adorning them, whose shapes inspired Andrew Norman’s Light Screens. Also on this program, the muscular beauty of Guggenheim Award-winner Laurie San Martin’s Objets Trouvés, and Jean Françaix’s exuberant wind quartet.

Radius Ensemble is Longy School of Music's Ensemble-in-Residence. All concerts are free with Longy ID.


10.6.17 Horszowski Trio: Sorrows of Young Werther

Edward M. Pickman Concert Hall, 8:00 pm

Brahms was a Romantic with both an upper- and lower-case ‘r’. In this concert, his third quartet is paired with two romances by Clara Schumann, and his love for her flows through a number of Brahms’ works.

10.13.17 Gessner-Schocken Concert Series: Christopher Taylor

Edward M. Pickman Concert Hall, 8:00 pm

Remarkable pianist Christopher Taylor is the featured performer of Longy’s 2017 Gessner-Schocken Concert Series. He will present an evening of works inspired by other composers; you’ll hear Corgliano quote—and Liszt rework—Beethoven, and Rachmaninoff borrow Schubert. You may experience a case of musical mistaken identity. This concert series is generously funded by the family of Ruth Gessner- Schocken.

10.14.17 Longy Hosts: Unitas Ensemble - Mujeres

Edward M. Pickman Concert Hall, 8:00 pm

Unitas Ensemble presents their first concert in the "Mujeres Project"--a series of concerts dedicated to commemorating Latina women. Promoting the work of Latinos, especially women Latinas, is a noble task which will bring together the city's classical concert audience, art lovers, and the Latino community. Performing works by Latina composers will foster discussions of important issues pertaining to the Latino community, such as domestic violence against women, gender and racial stereotypes, and how these issues affect the arts and our society in general.

10.21.17 Trumpet Day 2017

Edward M. Pickman Concert Hall, 9:30 am

Join Longy faculty Steven Emery and Andrew Kozar with special guest artist Joe Burgstaller--former member of Canadian Brass and current soloist--for an unforgettable day of classes!

10.27.17 OktoberFest: Cabaret

Edward M. Pickman Concert Hall, 8:00 pm

Longy has strong French connections, but we are embracing something that the Germans perfected. Our SeptemberFest celebration has moved to October! Journey with us into the land of bier, wurst, and pretzels in 20th century Berlin. Prost!

Between the World Wars, a vibrant subculture existed in Berlin—one that rivaled the open, accepting spirit of the 1970s. Join us for a night of satirical critiques, as we embrace the ethos of undermining gender roles and prescriptive identity that characterized this period of “divine decadence.”

Festive attire and accessories encouraged!


Longy is proud to offer many concerts free of charge and open to the public. Please consider making a donation along with your ticket reservation to help Longy continue to provide world-class musical performances for the surrounding community.
