BRATTLEBORO – Jaime Laredo is leading a performance of both Brahms sextets with his wife, Sharon Robinson. That alone is news, but the fact that he will be joined by acclaimed violinist Pamela Frank, Marlboro Festival veterans Nokuthula Ngwenyama and Milena Pajaro-van de Stadt on viola, and cellist Keith Robinson, Sharon’s brother, makes that news spectacular.

The Brattleboro Music Center’s 2017-18 Chamber Music Series concludes with “Two Glorious Sextets of Brahms,” at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 9, at 72 Blanche Moyse Way. (The program will be repeated May 11 at the Kimmel Center’s Perelman Theater in Philadelphia).

Laredo, music director of the Vermont Symphony Orchestra, is one of the world’s foremost violinists and teachers. With his wife and pianist Joseph Kalichstein, they form the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio, one of the most successful of our time. And, residents of Guilford, they are artistic directors of the Brattleboro Music Center.
