NM Tech's Presidential Chamber Music Series presents the Eric Sewell Quintet--five stellar NM musicians:  Eric Sewell, violin (curator & Socorro local); David Felberg, violin (Chatter); Laura Tait Chang, viola (principal, NM Philharmonic); Lisa Donald, cello (Chatter); Luke Gullickson, piano (Chatter). The program will feature Mahler’s Piano Quintet in A minor and Quartet for Piano, Violin, Viola and Cello; Beethoven’s Piano Quartet No. 1 in E-Flat Major; and Weinberg’s Piano Quintet, Op. 18.  Says Eric Sewell, violinist and curator of this concert: "The Mahler and Beethoven quartets were both written in their composers' middle teen years and are rarities. They also are immensely accomplished works echoing contemporary masters�"Brahms and Mozart�"and foreshadowing the iconoclastic younger composers' later developments.  Emerging as a peer of Shostakovich and Prokofiev, Weinberg's relative obscurity outside of Soviet Russia is fading as international recognition of his creative genius rises. His piano quintet (1944) is a modern masterpiece and considered one of his finest compositions."  This concert will be live at Macey Center, with an in-person audience, and also live-streamed on Facebook and YouTube, at 7:30pm.  Tickets are FREE for EVERYONE, in a gift to the Socorro-area community, courtesy of NM Tech President Dr. Stephen G. Wells and the PAS Susan Miller Memorial.  For more info, visit: nmt.edu/pas.  MASKS REQUIRED.
