Links: Kronos, Shahams, and more

A review bonanza in today’s Washington Post, after one of the busiest weekends for classical music in this town I’ve ever seen.

The Kronos Quartet plays a very strong “America Program,” by Anne Midgette. Note that Kronos is giving a concert of new works by UMD composition students at the Clarice Smith Center tonight.

The Shaham siblings warm up at the JCC for next week’s Jewish-themed concert in New York, by Robert Battey.

Charles T. Downey pondered the Kennedy Center Chamber Players’s double-barreled performance of two versions of the same Brahms trio.

A local church choir takes on Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Requiem,” with major soloists; Alfred Thigpen reports.

Joe Banno writes about the Venice Baroque Orchestra, performing in the resonant spaces of the National Gallery.

Cecelia Porter was unimpressed with Rob Kapilow’s long-standing “What Makes it Great” concept, but enjoyed the Choral Arts Society in the Mozart Requiem.
