Concordia’s second concert of the season will be on February 4th, 2024 at 3PM. Entitled “The WolfganG,” it features music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart as well as Igor Stravinsky and Bohuslav Martinů. Mozart was a great “influencer,” pre-social media, touching nearly every composer who followed him and especially the two others featured on the program.

The program opens with Stravinsky’s Elegy for solo viola. Stravinsky referred to himself as “Mozart’s continuer” in the context of opera. Since Mozart himself loved and played the viola, it seems fitting to shine a light on the instrument that he often featured so prominently with a performance of this solo piece by Stravinsky. This will be followed by the Madrigals by Bohuslav Martinů which were inspired by Mozart’s Symphonia Concertante for violin, viola, and orchestra. In addition to also being scored for violin and viola, these pieces share a similar structure with the Mozart work, but are expressed with the unique voice of Martinů. The capstone of this concert will be the Divertimento in E-flat Major, K. 563 by Mozart, a serene and happy work, arguably the one of the most inventive compositions in the limited string trio literature.

We will gather in larger numbers for a thrilling program. We open with the Phantasy Quartet by English composer Imogen Holst, the daughter of Gustav Holst. This composition, pastoral in nature, was awarded the Cobbett Prize in 1928. Our program is named after our next offering: Thirty Thousand Days for clarinet and string quartet by the young American composer, Chris Rogerson. Chris, whose father was a statistician, explains his father’s desire to measure life’s progress by 10,000 day increments. In Chris’ words, “When my sister and I reached our 10,000th days soon after turning 27, he excitedly called to make sure we knew the milestone we had reached. With a sharp memory he recounted stories of his own 10,000th and 20,000th days. While we were amused by his enthusiasm for this seemingly random day, I came to realize the value of looking at life from a broader perspective. Thirty Thousand Days explores this idea of life’s three stages. In the first movement, I try to evoke the joy, innocence, and sweetness of youth. The second movement depicts struggle, coldness, and fury. Finally, the last movement imagines acceptance, resignation, loss, and love.” We then close the concert and the season with the ravishingly beautiful and singular String Quartet in G minor, Opus 27 by Norwegian composer, Edvard Grieg.

Sam Reider & Jorge Glem

“one-of-kind fusion of  folk music”

“It’s a very special thing when two musical cultures come together to create something that didn’t exist before.” – NPR

Grammy-nominated, Venezuelan, cuatro virtuoso Jorge Glem teams up with American accordionist, pianist, and composer Sam Reider to create a one-of-a-kind fusion of folk music. With jaw dropping virtuosity and infectious chemistry, these musicians and friends are breaking down all the boundaries between their two continents, languages, and cultures.

Jorge and Sam blend Venezuela’s driving dance rhythms with American folk music and jazz. Their debut record, Brooklyn Cumaná, features a mix of Venezuelan and American traditional music, original compositions, and collaborations with special guests. Brooklyn Cumaná was released in November 2022 at a concert at Lincoln Center. In February 2023 Glem and Reider performed on NPR’s Tiny Desk.

The duo will be playing selections from Brooklyn Cumaná on June 9th at 7pm at SummerFest 2023 at Cradle Valley Farm in New Hope, PA.

Both friendly and approachable in person, you’ll also have a chance to meet them after the show! The evening includes delicious food, cocktails, and great fun with good friends in the beautiful, warm, June weather!
Tickets will not be sold at the door, so please either buy tickets online or send a check for $175 per ticket. Thanks as always for supporting Concordia and we hope to see you at SummerFest!
