Finger Lakes Chamber Music Festival opens June 15 at Hunt Country

Rapturous music, innovative programming, a season of the grandmasters’ works coupled with 20th century composers, and a world premiere based on the poetry of Robert Frost. It’s all a part of the Finger Lakes Chamber Music Festival’s 2019 season from June 15 through July 27.

The opening concert Saturday, June 15 at Hunt Country Vineyards, 7:30 p.m. features the ever popular Abel Family String Quartet with FLCMF artistic director, Richard Auldon Clark on viola. They will perform two beautiful string quintets, Beethoven’s Quintet in C Major, Op. 29 and Dvorřák’s Quintet in E flat major, Op. 97.

The Abel Family first performed publicly as a string quartet in Corelli’s Christmas Concerto.

Benjamin was 9 and Clara 7. Since then, the Abel Family Quartet has performed chamber music concerts around the country in Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia, Kentucky, Iowa, and New York City.
