The best concerts from across the globe. With Kate Molleson. Tonight, members of the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra in Minnesota in works from the Old World and the New.

Amy Beach was Boston born and had a successful composing and performing career in and around Boston and New York, she joined a Boston based Quartet to perform quintets by Schumann and Brahms, and in 1905 performed her own Quintet we'll hear tonight.

Dvorak's 2 Serenades - one for winds and the other for strings are Dvorak at his most informal. and we'll hear the one for strings tonight, written in 1875 at a time when Dvorak's chosen career as a composer was beginning to pay off.

Both performances are by members of the St Paul Chamber Orchestra.

Piano Quintet in F sharp minor, Op 67
