Sound of harp, bell


CAMBRIDGE, N.Y -- On Sunday, April 6, at 7 p.m., Hubbard Hall will present a Music from Salem chamber music concert with director Lila Brown (viola), pianist Marc Ryser, and the Julius Quartet (Boston Conservatorys honors string quartet), at 25 E. Main St.

They will perform Martinu's sonata for viola and piano, full of the sounds of ringing bells, from his childhood as the son of the village bellringer; a late romantic work by Faure's Belgian student, Charles Koechlin; and the virtuosic Concertpiece by Enesco.

Julius String Quartet will offer Beethoven's "Harp" string quartet (opus 74), and all the musicians will come together to play "Scenes from Andalucia" for viola, piano and string quartet by the Spanish composer Joaquin Turina.

Admission is pay what you can.
