The Galliard String Quartet, considered Hawaii’s premier string quartet, performs programs including the works of such favorite composers as Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Schubert, and Brahms. Music of the masters is the Galliard’s forte, but the group’s repertoire also includes Strauss waltzes, romantic interludes, light classics, Hawaiian music, popular music and more.

Spring Wind Quintet

The Spring Wind Quintet, recognized as one of the country’s leading wind quintets, has been a major force in the development of chamber music in Hawaii. Many new works have been composed and arranged especially for the Spring Wind Quintet. The group has an extensive and varied repertoire earning several national grants and offers educational programs for all ages.

So what IS a “Tresemble?” Chamber Music Hawaii coined this new word to describe its combined ensemble of mixed instrumentation drawing from all three of the resident ensembles. Tresemble concerts can program many great pieces of chamber music that do not fit into one of the typical categories. We even bring in guest musicians, such as pianists, harpists or vocalists to perform this often neglected repertoire. Sometimes a Tresemble concert uses a larger group of musicians to perform works such as Mozart’s Grand Partita for winds, Dvorak’s Serenade, or Stravinsky’s L’Histoire du Soldat.
