Christine Payne of Ensemble SF recently asked me about chamber music programming ideas for Halloween. I have come up with a nice little bag of treats for you including perhaps a few tricks. It turns out, chamber music can be downright SCARY, chilling, black, and certainly haunting. There are even several pieces that are directly related to Halloween, ghosts, goblins, graveyards and even Edgar Allen Poe, all presented here for your bone-rattling delectation.
Note, if one searches the broader field of piano, organ, choral and orchestral music, there is a raging haunted house of material. The game here is chamber music, specifically. Surely there is more, but this is a good haul for an evening of dark revelry. There is something here for everyone.
Welcome to the CHAMBER of horrors. Boo!
