    The Musical Offering

    Drawn from the talented musicians of the Minnesota Orchestra, the Minnesota Opera, the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra and others, the TMO takes its audience on a voyage through the exciting territory of chamber music in its many and colorful forms! 

    All Concerts on Sundays at 3:00 p.m.

    October 12, 2014:  Two pieces with Roma-like finales: Haydn’s Piano Trio in G and Brahms’ Piano Quartet in G minor, along with a wind quintet by Szervansky – a new discovery perhaps?

    December 7, 2014:  Franz Schubert and Hugo Wolf were excellent song composers – they also wrote beautiful chamber music. Schubert’s Quartet for Guitar with soloist Christopher Kachian is on this concert along with the Italian Serenade by Wolf.  Hummel’s first Septet rounds out the program.

    February 8, 2015:  Enjoy Mozart? This whole concert is devoted to his music. It’s a Mozartiade, an evening of music and food, much like Mozart and his friends would have done.

    April 26, 2015:  Beethoven’s Quartet for piano and winds, Alban Berg’s 4 pieces for clarinet and piano plus a nonet by Bohuslav Martinu make for a great afternoon of listening.

    Ticket prices are $100 for the season, single tickets are $25, except for the Mozartiade which is $50. All concerts free to HU current staff and students except for the Mozartiade.
