    Apple Hill musicians have earned praise around the world for their concerts presenting interpretive mastery of traditional repertoire—including Haydn, Mozart, Schubert, Schumann, Beethoven, and Ravel—as well as new and commissioned works. For this Great Music at St. Bart’s program, the ensemble will perform the New York premiere of Michael Kropf’s String Quartet (2017), a work the group commissioned; Dmitri Shostakovich’s Piano Preludes, Op. 87D, arranged for string trio by Mike Kelley; and Gabriel Fauré’s Piano Quartet in C Minor, Op. 15.

    Central to the mission of Apple Hill is “Playing for Peace,” an innovative outreach program that focuses on social change and conflict resolution through music in areas of conflict, particularly the Middle East. Founded in 1971 and situated on 100 acres of fields and woodlands in rural New Hampshire, Apple Hill is a center of chamber music performance and teaching. It is stewarded today by the organization’s director, Leonard Matczynski, and ensemble-in-residence, the Apple Hill String Quartet, founded in 2007. www.applehill.org
