This concert opens with one of the finest pieces in the chamber music repertoire - the 1st movement from Schubert's String quintet.

This is followed by an upbeat Old Toronto Klezmer suite by Canadian Jewish composer Srul Irving Glick. This piece is inspired by Eastern European Jewish folk music (Klezmer) and jazz melodies. Written for an nontraditional set of instruments, the piece is a musical image of various scenes from the composer's childhood.

The concert concludes with work of Czech composer Antonín Dvořák - Piano Quintet No2 in A Major. This is a masterpiece filled with tuneful melodies and exciting rhythms that evoke the folk music and dances of Eastern Europe.
