The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum’s winter-spring season will open on Jan. 13 with violinist Corey Cerovsek and pianist Paavali Jumppanen beginning a multiconcert series of the violin sonatas of Beethoven, with the second concert following on April 7. This sort of project — frequent visitors devoting themselves to multiple works by a single composer — is a hallmark of the Gardner’s programming, and it provides continuity in the new season, both with ongoing concerts and with its approach more generally.
The season, which the Gardner recently announced, also includes two entries in a similar series already underway. The Borromeo String Quartet continues its “Dvorak Project” with a concert devoted to the String Quartet in E-flat, Op. 51, and the Double Bass Quintet, Op. 77, with bassist Donald Palma (Feb. 3); and one that features the String Quartet in G, Op. 106, and the String Sextet, Op. 48, with violist Yura Lee and cellist Paul Katz (April 14).
