This summer has been a busy one for the Elysians. In August, Rahel Inniger, Barbara Jaffe, and Louise Jaffe, travelled to Switzerland to play a short tour of concerts. In July, Barbara and Louise again participated as instructors at the Vermont Music and Arts Center’s annual chamber music “camp”. Cellist Talia Schiff was busy preparing for her September recital with pianist Karen Burgman.
After the release of their first CD last year, the group is considering recording a second one. Newly appointed to the PennPAT (PA Performing Artists on Tour) Artist Roster, the Elysian Camerata is a Philadelphia-based ensemble that began as the occasional collaboration of few close friends, who all felt a common bond in their love for chamber music. This dynamic ensemble, comprised of 2 violins, 2 violas, cello and piano, explores the unlimited diversity that exists in the chamber music repertoire. They present programs that offer a variety of ensemble sizes and types, created both from within their core group as well as with guest artists.
