It has been described as music among friends and in the case of a string quartet four friends conversing. Regardless, chamber music, which dates back to the early days of the Renaissance, is usually played in a small room for a small gathering. This Sunday at Thomas W. Lambs intimate art deco jewel on Miami Beach, the Lincoln Theatre, the New World Symphony will play five various examples that offer a glimpse into the world of Vienna of the late 1700s to the mid-1800s. Old Vienna starts with Franz Schuberts Quartet No. 12 in C Minor for Stings, also known as Quartettsatz, then moves on to Gustav Mahlers Quartet in A Minor for Piano and Strings; Arnold Schoenbergs arrangement of Johan Strauss Jr.s Emperor Waltzes; Richard Strauss Serenade in E-flat Major for 13 Wind Instruments and back to Schubert for his Trio No. 1 in B-flat Major for violin, cello and piano.
