BCM Autumn, Bridgehampton Chamber Music’s fall mini-series launched in 2021, expands from two concerts to three in 2022, with Saturday evening programs on October 29, November 12, and December 10, BCM’s first-ever holiday program. With BCM Autumn and BCM Spring mini-series joining the summer festival, Bridgehampton Chamber Music offers concerts virtually year-round.
On October 29, the celebrated young Calidore String Quartet makes its Bridgehampton Chamber Music debut performing selections from Wynton Marsalis’s first string quartet, At the Octoroon Balls, and quartets by Shostakovich and Smetana. On November 12, an all-star trio of pianist/composer Michael Stephen Brown, violinist Benjamin Beilman, and cellist Carter Brey perform a program highlighted by piano trios by Schubert. And “Baroque Holiday” on December 10 brings BCM Artistic Director and flutist Marya Martin together with some of BCM’s finest artists – violinists Kristin Lee and Arnaud Sussmann, violist Matthew Lipman, cellist Brook Speltz, and harpsichordist Kenneth Weiss – for a program of festive Baroque music to celebrate the holidays.
“This longtime East End festival, directed by the flutist Marya Martin, has flourished by offering concerts both effervescent and distinguished,” said The New Yorker. In the 38 years since its founding, Bridgehampton Chamber Music has become known for presenting a broad range of music performed by some of the best musicians in the world in one of the most beautiful seaside settings on the East Coast. With autumn and spring mini-series joining the summer festival, Bridgehampton Chamber Music offers programs almost year-round.
