Come hear Lorna McGhee, principal flutist of the Pittsburgh Orchestra, play on Frank and Diana Cohen's Chamberfest Cleveland series! This free-wheeling, ethnically diverse program features an Appalachia waltz and toe-tapping reel by Bluegrass and classical fiddler extraordinaire Mark O’Conner. Dvořák’s gorgeous song is from a folk-inspired set, while Kohán’s work is influenced by the Klezmer tradition.
Experience Voice of the Whale as Crumb intended, with the stage bathed in deep blue light to evoke the oceanic depths that are home to the humpback whale, “singer” of fascinating songs. Following his mother’s passing, Dvořák penned a magisterial trio now revered as a preeminent work of the genre. Berg’s Chamber Concerto honored the 50th birthday of his mentor, Schoenberg.
Handel’s trio contains the sprightliness and stateliness of the operas and oratorios for which he’s better known. Brahms’s great piano variations on a Handel theme were transcribed for orchestra and conducted by Toscanini; we are thrilled to present Roman Rabinovich’s inspired transcription for nine players. Ligeti wrote an intriguing homage to Brahms for the rare trio of piano, violin and French horn that Brahms also composed for.
