YouTube Video,


For the fourth broadcast of our Masterworks Series, streamed on our YouTube Channel, we are featuring a concert of great significance in our 60 year history.  We have a maintained a treasured archive of recorded Bay Chamber performances, spanning decades of concerts and featuring so many astonishing artists and ensembles. This evening features a performance by co-founder of Bay Chamber Concerts, pianist Andrew Wolf. He is joined by the beloved Vermeer Quartet to perform an iconic work from the chamber music literature. The musical recording is accompanied by images from Bay Chamber and Rockport’s archives and the work of some of Maine’s most innovative painters and photographers. These are rare and beautiful recordings and we are so excited to share these transcendent performances with you in an entirely new way.
