Featuring percussion stars Andy Akiho and Ian Rosenbaum in an evening of vibrant, viscerally driving music. Hailed as “a perfect encapsulation of today’s trends in chamber music” (Washington Post)

Seeking a deep and irresistible groove along with some food for thought? Then you will want to join us for our Annual Winter Gala. This year will feature the masters of rhythm, Andy Akiho and Ian Rosenbaum, both percussionists extraordinaire joined by strings and things. This evening will cook up not only music that will have you tapping your toes but also a meal that will have you licking your lips. All this will be shared in the sublime setting of the barn at Cradle Valley Farm. Our gala sells out each year, so be sure to reserve your spot early.

We bring you Amy Beach’s unusually beautiful String Quartet in One Movement built upon three Inuit melodies. Then we will explore Diacritical Marks for string quartet of Nico Muhly. Still in his 30’s, the prolific and versatile Muhly wrote the score for the Academy Award winning film, The Reader, the music for Broadway’s revival of The Glass Menagerie, the opera Marnie performed by the Metropolitan Opera in the fall of 2018 along with numerous other commissions. His Diacritical Marks is comprised of 8 short movements creating a sense of urgency and rhapsodic lyricism with great attention to detail. Bartok’s Piano Quintet in C Major will astound you with its beauty but will not sound like what you have come to expect of Bartok. It is lush with melodies and grand in scope in the category of works by Brahms, Schumann, and Dvorak. These beautiful qualities are precisely the reason this masterpiece has gone ignored by most. People preferred the voice Bartok developed with age and unfairly regarded this quintet as inferior. You will be thrilled to hear Concordia’s veterans, William Wolfram at the piano, Kristin Lee and Yoojin Jang on violin, Daniel Kim on viola, and Michelle Djokic on cello for this breathtaking program.

Program:

String Quartet in One Movement — Amy Beach
Diacritical Marks for string quartet — Nico Muhly
Piano Quintet in C major — Béla Bartók

Artists:

YooJin Jang – violin
Kristin Lee – violin
Daniel Kim – viola
Michelle Djokic – cello

Age of Exploration:  Baroque Music of  Spain & Latin America

Age of Exploration:  Baroque Music of Spain & Latin America
 
 
This year, ChamberFest will feature the works of the Spanish and Latin American Baroque. Soprano Nell Snaidas, praised by the New York Times for her “vocally ravishing” performances, curates this program which will take us from the Spanish Baroque to the music of Peru, Guatemala, and Mexico in the New World. Joining Nell will be Daniel Swenberg on lute and theorbo, Rex Benincasa with all things percussive, Francisco Fullana and Siwoo Kim on violin, and Michelle Djokic playing cello-continuo. This is certainly a destination event. Our first offering is a free open rehearsal in the charming Free Library of New Hope on Friday, September 13 at 10:30 AM. That same evening at 6:00 PM we will present a “Musical Offering” of baroque works to be discovered by you like a box of truffles in the magical setting of The Chapel at Kings Oaks. On the evening of Saturday, September 14 will be the main offering of our Fandango in the Barn at Glen Oaks Farm where the music will be ringing from the rafters.

Silenced Voices

Sunday, October 27, 2019

3:00 PM

Tickets will also be available at the door.

Alongside of the concert, the ArtYard will be presenting a very special exhibit. Janet Ruttenberg: Beholder, is an exhibition featuring eleven of Ruttenberg’s recent ten-by-fifteen-foot canvases and watercolors celebrating Central Park’s famous Sheep Meadow. Her works of this monumental scale have been exhibited only once before, in 2013 at the Museum of the City of New York. As a rule, Ruttenberg has pursued her work with rigor and focus while avoiding art-world dicta and public recognition. Since 2013 her art has become ever more experimental, as she integrates photography and video with her complex paintings to seize the day in every way possible.

The October Concordia Chamber Music program, titled Silenced Voices, is an homage of music, with a visual element, to all those in the art and literary world who have been banned for political or religious reasons. The more profound intention of our programming is to allow us all through hearing these works, to reflect on the many voices that have been and are currently being silenced for reasons including, religious, political, racial and sexual identity. 

 
Much of Sibinga's music was lost during his internment in the Dutch East Indies. In spite of a stellar career as a young cellist and composer, Hermann, who was Jewish, was sent to the interment camp of Darncy. Hans Krasa was put to death at Auschwitz soon after completing his string trio Tanec. Meyerbeer's delightful clarinet Quintet was banned during WWII due to his Jewish roots. Shostokovich was twice formally denounced by the government for the "western influences" in his music and ultimately his music was also banned for a time. His String Quartet is dedicated to "the victims of Fascism and war."
 
With the exception of the Shostakovich String Quartet these compositions have rarely been enjoyed live and deserve to be heard and performed in honor of the many voices who have been silenced.  Concordia is proud to present this music to the public.
 
 

Program:

String Quartet in C Major (selections) — Theo Smit Sibinga
Grand Duo for violin and cello (selections) — Pál Hermann
Dance for string trio — Hans Krasa
String Quartet No. 8 — Dmitri Shostakovich
Clarinet Quintet — Giacomo Meyerbeer

Artists:

Sibbi Bernhardsson – violin
Alexi Kenney – violin
Richard O’Neill – viola
Michelle Djokic – cello
Romie deGuise-Langlois – clarinet
