    Since its founding in 1998, the Chameleon Arts Ensemble has built a reputation as one of Boston’s most adventurous chamber ensemble, integrating old and new repertoire into unexpected chamber music programs that are themselves works of art. Over the past 15 years, Chameleon has produced 150 concerts featuring a staggering array of nearly 400 different works by 105 different composers, earning critical acclaim for both its innovative programming and world-class performances. The Boston Globe hailed, “planning a good chamber music program is an art unto itself, and few in town have mastered it as persuasively.” They were recognized nationally with 2009 and 2007 Awards for Adventurous Programming from Chamber Music America and the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers. The artists of the Ensemble are among the area’s most highly respected and sought-after performers, with growing national reputations. Their superb artistry and finely honed collaborative skills ensure luminous performances and dynamic musical dialogues. The Boston Globe called them an “all-star lineup of chamber musicians,” and The Boston Phoenix hailed “A performance that was as tender as it was ferocious, as expansive as it was intimate, as mysterious as it was open-hearted...I doubt I’ll ever hear it played better.”

      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
