Chamber Music Festival Fills a Void

By ANTHONY TOMMASINI

AUG. 30, 2014

In recent years, the New York Chamber Music Festival has stepped up during the early September lull in the classical music calendar with innovative programs at Symphony Space featuring both established and emerging artists. This year’s festival offers some intriguing programs on Friday and Saturday.The Russian-born, Juilliard-trained pianist Konstantin Soukhovetski, who has been adopting rock star trappings of late, offers a typically unusual program at 5 p.m. Friday, including his own transcriptions of scenes from Strauss’s “Capriccio,” Massenet’s “Manon” and other operas. That evening at 8, the veteran soprano Carole Farley appears with the flutist Patricia Spencer, the Delphinium Trio and the New York Piano Quartet in “Prokofiev & Friends,” with works by Prokofiev’s colleagues Stravinsky, Gershwin and Vernon Duke.Saturday afternoon at 2, there is a free program of works by “Very Young Composers,” as the concert is billed. That evening at 8, the violinist Elmira Darvarova joins the acclaimed French pianist Pascal Roge for some French sonatas. (Broadway and 95th Street, 212-864-5400, symphonyspace.org)
