Concert In The Style Of 1810

MOZART:  Oboe Quartet in F Major, K 370
POULENC:  Trio for Oboe, Bassoon, and Piano
SAINT-SAËNS:  Étude en Forme de Valse

PRYOR:  Thoughts of Love
MAURER:  Concertante for Four Violins and Piano

James Austin Smith  oboe,  Scott Hartman  trombone,
André-Michel Schub  piano,  with  Norfolk Festival Fellows

The concert experience in 1810 was very different from today. With a variety of performers, single movements, opera excerpts, virtuosic showpieces and lovely melodies, all on one concert, it was truly a feast for the audience. Here we offer our take on that model, with works ranging from Mozart to the 21st century.

FELIX MENDELSSOHN:  Piano Trio in d minor, Op 49
FANNY MENDELSSOHN:  Piano Trio in d minor, Op 11
FELIX MENDELSSOHN:  Octet for Strings, Op 20

Wendy Chen  piano,  with  Norfolk Festival Fellows

Composers and performers have always sought instruments that enlarge sonic and expressive possibilities, and instrument makers have responded, making instruments capable of greater power and finesse. This program allows you to hear the step from harpsichord to piano, from natural horn to the modern horn, as well as the introduction of the metronome in Beethoven’s music, where the composer establishes a greater power over the performer by dictating with specificity how fast or slow the music should be performed.

Popular Music Friday, August 2, 2019 8:00PM   ·   More Info »

SCHOENBERG:  from Brettl-lieder (cabaret songs)

All four works in this program incorporate elements of popular music into the world of art music. You will hear elements of jazz, of cabaret, of the sophisticated parties of the 1920s jazz age, and in the piece by Michael Daugherty, hints of rock and roll.
