After enjoying a beautiful afternoon puttering around in the garden, I realized that I’d be cutting it close. So, without further ado, here are a few things that you can still get to today.
The Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival is putting on an evening of Haydn, Mozart and Schubert at the Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church, starting at 6 p.m. The group’s final spring series program provides a perfect snapshot of the development of music of the classical period. Haydn’s early, cheery, “London” trio (named for the city in which it was written) sets a standard for the period. Mozart’s C major trio, with its crystalline beauty and elegant lines, perhaps best exemplifies the classical period, while Schubert’s E-flat major trio pushes towards romanticism with his grand, flowing melodies, and haunting and ultimately triumphant climax. On the program: Haydn’s “London” Trio No. 1 in C major for Flute, Violin, and Cello, Hob IV:1; Mozart’s Piano Trio in C major, K. 548; and Schubert’s Piano Trio in E-flat major, D. 929. Featured musicians include: Marya Martin, flute; Ani Kavafian, violin; Peter Wiley, cello; and Juho Pohjonen, piano.
On the North Fork, the Alex Ferrone Gallery is hosting an opening reception for “Florescence” today from 6 to 8 p.m. Featured photographers are Sandra Carrion, Barbara Macklowe and Richard Gardner. Coming up on Sunday, June 5, a gallery talk and luncheon with the artists from 1 to 3 p.m.
