Great performances in an intimate setting

Welcome from the Artistic Director
The 2012-2013 Season
  Oskar Espina Ruiz, Clarinet

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Treetops Chamber Music Society and our 2012-2013 season.

Treetops CMS is a unique place to experience chamber music, offering outstanding performances by world-class musicians in an intimate setting. Located just 45 minutes north of New York City in the Greenwich-Stamford area of Connecticut, Treetops CMS sits within the historic Treetops estate, its stage the former art studio of American artist Louis Schanker. Since its founding in 2006, Treetops CMS has presented a stellar roster of international artists, among them the American, Shanghai, Daedalus, Cassatt and Escher Quartets, the New York Woodwind Quintet and artists from the MET Orchestra.

Since 2008, Treetops CMS has also helped nurture some of the most talented young chamber musicians in the country through its J.C. Arriaga Chamber Music Competition and has complemented the musical experience with art exhibits, featuring the work of a different artist at each concert.

The Treetops CMS Board of Directors and I are looking forward to an exciting concert season, our seventh, featuring Musicians from the MET, the American and Cassatt string quartets, the Horszowski and Espina-Browne-Shteinberg trios, as well as other outstanding artists. This year, we are especially delighted to present the preeminent American String Quartet and Treetops CMS artistic director Oskar Espina Ruiz, clarinet, in the performance of two monumental masterpieces of the Romantic chamber music repertoire at the Kweskin Theatre Curtain Call in Stamford on October 21, 2012, a not-to-be-missed concert including the audience favorite “Death and the Maiden” by Schubert.

Looking forward to a new musical journey,

Oskar Espina Ruiz
Artistic Director
