Off the Chamber is a concert series founded and directed by composers Ethan D'Ver and Zach Hicks celebrating chamber music written for nonstandard combinations of instruments. Each concert features classic works alongside world premieres for one or more of these oddball ensembles. Join us at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music in Park Slope in September 2024 for an eclectic and rousing program featuring Benjamin Britten’s “Gemini Variations” for flute, violin, and piano 4-hands; Camille Saint-Saëns “Caprice sur des Airs Danois et Russes” for flute, oboe, clarinet, and piano; and world premieres by the celebrated Ukrainian composer Alexander Rodin; the ever-popular composer and pianist Felix Jarrar; and Off the Chamber co-founder, composer, and flutist Zach Hicks.
