      And speaking of superlatives, at the Goethe-Institut, pianist Sergey Schepkin, one of the founding members of the Chameleon Arts Ensemble (and an artist who should be a lot better known than most of the current crop of celebrity pianists), has returned to Boston from a stint in Pittsburgh, and joined another co-founder, violinist Joanna Kurkowicz (maybe best known here as concertmaster of the Boston Philharmonic), in a thrilling — full-bodied, warm-blooded, rhythmically slippery (a friend called it “devilish”) — Beethoven A-minor Violin Sonata (a scintillating precursor of the later and more famous Kreutzer Sonata). These old musical partners seemed to be breathing the same air, reading each other’s minds. I didn’t want it to end.

      “From wild spring air’’ was the title of the fifth and final concert of Chameleon Arts Ensemble’s 13th season, but on Saturday night, the playing at a packed Goethe-Institut matched the weather outside: warm and pungent, with a more than a hint of rainy sorrow. The program from this all-star lineup of chamber musicians was typically imaginative and eclectic, a gathering of B’s not Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms, but Samuel Barber, Derek Bermel, Beethoven, and Ernest Bloch.
