“chamber music heaven!”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Chamber music in the US doesn't get any better than Yellow Barn. For the audience, It starts with world-class performances by aspiring young professionals playing side by side with top notch mentors in a comfortable, intimate hall that is ideal for chamber music. For the performers, it's an opportunity to rehearse in depth in a tranquil rural setting with seasoned performers, in an atmosphere that encourages experimentation and dedication to the music. The repertoire is an exciting mix of chamber music classics (Beethoven, Schumann, Ravel) and new or neglected music, including works by well-chosen composers-in-residence each season. The programs are long and demanding for the audience, but there's ice cream and blueberries at intermission to refresh your attention.
