Concordia Chamber Players Open Rehearsal

Saturday, February 29, 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

In advance of their March 1 concert in Solebury, Pa., the Concordia Chamber Players invite the community to a free, open rehearsal.
They will begin with Amy Beach’s String Quartet in One Movement built upon three Inuit melodies and then explore “Diacritical Marks” for string quartet by Nico Muhly. The rehearsal will conclude with Piano Quintet in C major by Béla Bartók.
Still in his 30s, 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 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.
Performing will be Concordia veterans William Wolfram at the piano, Kristin Lee and Yoojin Jang on violin, Daniel Kim on viola and Michelle Djokic on cello.
