Best Chamber Music Afloat (2008)

Barge Music

The intimate, floating concert hall BARGE MUSIC makes its home on a former coffee barge for the Erie Lackawanna Railroad, yet another successful New York marriage between art and retired industrial spaces. A fireplace, sunsets over lower Manhattan, and superb musicians add the atmosphere. Performances tend toward standard classical repertory: Brahms, Mozart, and Debussy, with all-Beethoven and all-Schumann programs in past seasons.
