    Now entering its 15th Anniversary Season, the Chameleon Arts Ensemble has distinguished itself as one of the finest. most versatile chamber ensembles in Boston. Since 1998, Chameleon has produced more than 100 concerts, with nearly 300 different works by 180 different composers. The Ensemble performs to capacity audiences and has received unanimous critical acclaim for its innovative concert programming and artistic philosophy: dynamic musical dialogues, integrating old and new repertoire into unexpected chamber music programs that are themselves works of art. In addition to its annual series at the Goethe-Institut Boston, the Ensemble presents a series of family and educational concerts for students in the Boston Public Schools in collaboration with the Forest Hills Educational Trust. The Ensemble is also receiving national attention, and was recently honored with 2007 & 2009 Awards for Adventurous Programming from ASCAP and Chamber Music America.

      We don’t need neurologist Oliver Sacks to convince us that classical music is one of the deepest human experiences. All you have to do is look at children. When they are exposed to it — serious, complex, soul-stirring music, I mean — their bodies shake, and they become alert and focused, taking it in. Ask them to volunteer to try instruments they have never played before, hands shoot up.

      All this was to be seen at the Chameleon Arts Ensemble’s annual children’s concert Saturday afternoon, given this year at the Boston Public Library’s Hyde Park Branch. Collapse

      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. Collapse
