Paris was a city of creative vibrancy in the early 20th century. Rejecting romanticism, these prolific composers expressed jazz idioms, Neo-classicism and general high spirits and irreverence in their compositions. Tonight’s program gives a lively musical glimpse into the City of Lights at a rich artistic moment.

Cataract Canyon, Colorado River

Event Description: 

Lovers of music, nature, and outdoor adventure will find the custom 4-day /3-night Musical Raft Trip on the Colorado River to be the experience of a lifetime. Called "a feast for all senses”, the trip begins with participants floating to the Festival’s signature Grotto Concert. Continuing down the river, patrons enjoy daily concerts by world-class artists in extraordinary settings, rafting on a serene, flat-water section, swimming, hiking, and relaxing as they bring their inner rhythms in tune with the River. The last day and a half complete the trip with a "splash" – an exhilarating run of the Class III and IV rapids of world-famous Cataract Canyon. At Lake Powell's Hite Marina, participants catch a scenic flight over Canyonlands National Park and the Colorado River. Participants return to Moab late on the evening of the last day.

Each day's unique, intimate concerts may include beautiful classical chamber music as well as exuberant traditional music.

Description

KODÁLY Serenade for Two Violins & Viola, Op. 12

ROLF WALLIN Stonewave for Three Percussionists

BEETHOVEN Piano Trio in B-flat Major, Op. 97, “Archduke”

Beethoven’s trailblazing “Archduke” Trio, dedicated to the composer’s friend, pupil, and patron, the Archduke Rudolph of Austria, is a landmark work in the chamber music repertoire. Kodály’s Serenade, scored for the unusual pairing of two violins and viola, was praised by Kodály’s fellow countryman Béla Bartók as “a genuine, modern product of Hungarian culture” that’s “extraordinarily rich in melodies.” The program also includes a late-20th-century work by Norwegian composer Rolf Wallin, Stonewave for Three Percussionists.

Concordia Chamber Players Subscription Concert III

“Our final subscription concert is an incredible discovery of exciting and thrilling music. We will be featuring two works by composer Andy Akiho, described by the NY Times as “mold breaking,” “dramatic,” “vital.” To open the program we present “21” for cello and marimba. This composition, inspired by the 21st measure of the Fugue movement of Bach’s Violin Sonata No. 1, calls for the cellist to also play the kick drum and trigger a looping pedal joined by the marimba player who uses many techniques in addition to playing the marimba. You will then hear the String Quartet No. 2 of Sergei Prokofiev based on Kabardinian themes. I chose this work to compliment the rhythmic vitality of the Akiho compositions while immersing you in the sounds of strings only. We all come together then for a performance of another Akiho composition, “LIgNEouS” meaning “made, consisting of or resembling wood” for marimba and string quartet.”

“21” for cello and marimba — Andy Akiho 

String quartet no. 2 “Kabardinian” — Sergei Prokofiev

LIgNEouS for marimba and string quartet — Andy Akiho

The club's Grand Salon lends both grandeur and intimacy to a program of chamber music by female composers, performed by the finest chamber music artists of their generation. Enjoy Clara Schumann’s (1819-1896) masterful Piano Trio (in g, Op. 17), Louise Farrenc’s (1804-1875) buoyant and lyrical Piano Quintet (No. 2, Op. 31) and Amy Beach’s (1867-1944) lushly romantic Piano Quintet (in f-sharp, Op. 67).
