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.”

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.

Great Lakes Chamber Music Festival: Bernstein: Arias and Barcarolles

After Bernstein's performance at the White House in 1960, President Eisenhower remarked, "You know, I liked that last piece you played: it's got a theme. I like music with a theme, not all them arias and barcarolles." Inspired by the President’s response, Leonard Bernstein would go on to be create his Arias and Barcarolles, a charming and entertaining work for soprano, baritone and piano four hands. Join pianists James Tocco and Robert Conway alongside soprano Lauren Skuce Gross and baritone Daniel Gross for a performance of this playful piece. Other featured pieces include Fauré’s Piano Quartet in C minor and a piece by Festival Composer-in-Residence, Shen Yiwen.

Often called “the crown of his chamber music” and hailed as a masterpiece, Brahms’ Piano Quintet combines adventurous melodic passages with a consistently dark mood to create what Brahms scholar Jan Swafford describes as: "at times anguished, at times (in the scherzo) demonic, at times tragic."
