Chamber group to perform at Purdue University on Oct. 4

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Chamber group ensemble 4.1 will perform at Loeb Playhouse on Oct. 4 at 7:30 p.m. This performance is presented by Purdue Convocations with support from Ginny Tyler. 

Chamber ensembles come in all shapes and sizes — string quartet, piano trio, brass quintet and piano — that represents the one-of-a-kind configuration for ensemble 4.1, a chamber group featuring oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn, and piano from Germany’s top orchestras. 

Founded in 2013 and facilitated by Germany’s Goethe Institute, ensemble 4.1 pays tribute to the timeless masterpieces of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Ludwig van Beethoven, and rediscovers rarely performed 19th- and 20th-century works by such composers as Walter Gieseking, Theodor Verhey, Herrman Zilcher and David Stephen. The group ensemble 4.1 has brought its singular sound to audiences around the world — including engagements in Berlin, Istanbul, New York, Toronto and Shanghai, and acclaimed festival stops in Denmark, Malta, and the Kotor Festival in Montenegro. 

The ensemble’s unique rapport and stage presence prompted the German publication DeWeZet to praise the “absolutely evident joy these musicians of (ensemble) 4.1 experience when they perform. The ensemble not only plays in total harmony together, but their dedication to the music and the performance is shining through every note.” 

Tickets are $28 for adults and $22 for children 18 years and younger, Purdue students and Ivy Tech Lafayette students. Tickets are available at the Stewart Center box office at 765-494-3933 or 800-914-SHOW. Group tickets are also available to groups of 10 more. Call 765-496-1977 for more details or visit
