This Weekend: Bargemusic Returns With Classical Fare

It’s been a while since we’ve featured Bargemusic, the floating classical locale just south of Fulton Ferry Landing at the entrance to Brooklyn Bridge Park. This weekend brings characteristic variety to the barge, with works for violin and piano by Brahms, Beethoven, Schubert and Sarasate.

On Wednesday June 6, string arrangements of Bach, Rachmaninoff and De Falla by Steve Cohen are featured, as well as the premieres of Cohen’s “Song for Strings” and Dina Pruzhansky’s “Song of Songs.”

Performances are at 8 p.m. Saturday & Wednesday, and 2 p.m. Sunday. Admission: Saturday & Sunday: $35, $30 for 65+, $15 for students; and Wednesday: $40, $35 for 65+, $20 for students. More info: 718-624-2083 or

    Bargemusic is a real treasure. The artists are almost always top-flight and the space is perfect for chamber music. They also have series devoted to jazz and contemporary classical music too.

    The founder of BargeMusic, Olga Bloom, died recently. It’s good to see that institution she began with a vision and an old rusted out barge has outlived her.
