Seattle Chamber Music Society has announced the lineup for its 2013 Winter Festival, now spanning two weekends (Jan. 18-26). Highlights include performances of J.S. Bach’s complete “Brandenburg Concertos” (Jan. 24), Bartók’s dazzling Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion (Jan. 20) and Steve Reich’s somber Holocaust-themed “Different Trains” for string quartet and voices (Jan. 19). Works by Beethoven, Schumann, Schubert, Brahms and Britten are also featured. The roster of stellar musicians includes some Seattle Symphony players — most notably, flutist Demarre McGill — who’ll be making their SCMS debuts. There’s a children’s program, too: “Musical Tales” (Jan. 26), with a musical instrument “petting zoo” preceding it. For more information, go to www.seattlechambermusic.org.
