Founded in 1964, this leading American chamber music ensemble is made up of principal players from the Boston Symphony Orchestra. All are fine soloists, sought-after chamber musicians and also renowned teachers. Depending on the given repertoire the Chamber Players can call upon other BSO members or they invite stellar guests, such as composer and conductor Thomas Adès, or pianists Emanuel Ax, Paul Lewis, Jean-Yves Thibaudet and Garrick Ohlsson, who will be performing in this concert. In addition to regular tours to some of the world’s finest venues, they are annual guests of the famous festival in Tanglewood.




The Boston Symphony Chamber Players are returning to the Prague Spring festival after an absence of almost forty years, whereas Garrick Ohlsson is a frequent guest in the Czech capital, particularly of the Prague Spring, where he gave his debut back in 1973. To date he has appeared at the festival as a soloist with orchestra or in recital programmes. Fans of this American pianist now have the opportunity to hear him as a superb chamber player. Ohlsson is no stranger to the chamber repertoire, as his colourful career proves. He has played chamber music his whole life, working closely particularly with leading string quartets, such as the Cleveland Quartet, Emerson String Quartet, Tokyo String Quartet and the Takács Quartet, with whom he is appearing this season as well. He also has his own FOG Trio which he established in San Francisco, where he has made his home.
