Spooky Chamber Music
Beta Test is a new chamber ensemble based in Philadelphia that focuses on performing a unique combination of classical music, new compositions, and geeky selections from classic video games like Super Smash Flash 2 and movies like Tron. For their October program, they’ve put together a set of music around the theme Monsters. On the program they’ll be performing Franz Schubert’s spookily famous Erlkonig, as well as instrumental arrangements of madrigals by the crazed Renaissance composer Carlo Gesualdo. They’ll also be presenting new works by Douglas Laustsen and Melissa Dunphy as well as arrangements of music from the video games Chrono Trigger, Castlevania, Zombies Ate My Neighbors, and the movie Beetlejuice. It should be frightfully fun time!
