    Night Music – Debussy and Bruce

      The magical sounds of the harp inspired this dreamy collection of music evoking evenings in the salons of Paris, the night sky in India, and the feverish dreams of Franz Schubert.  Two French masterpieces anchor the program: the revolutionary Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp by Debussy (the first major work to combine these three instruments) and the elegant  Fantasie by Saint-Saëns. These are paired with the mysterious Eye of Night by David Bruce, and Onutė Narbutaitė’s Winterserenade, an atmospheric envisioning of Franz Schubert’s song “Good Night.” Harpist Charles Overton makes his CMSCVA debut, joined by flutist Mary Boodell,...

    Baroque Spring: Pachelbel and Vivaldi

    Coffeehouses in 18th century Germany were much like today – places where people could enjoy stimulating conversion, a comforting beverage, and musical entertainment. Travel back in time with us to enjoy a program you might have heard at Leipzig’s most famous and elegant coffeehouse, Café Zimmermann, where famous composers like Bach and Telemann ran their own concert series that featured a wide range of music performed by chamber ensembles and small orchestras. Keeping with this tradition, our Baroque musical evening includes chamber music and concertos by Pachelbel, Fasch, Pisendal and Vivaldi, performed by a complete 15-piece orchestra of period instruments....

    Eight Immortals: Schubert and Li

    We end our season as we started it, with an epic work of Franz Schubert paired with a spectacular piece of music from our time. This time we combine the celebratory Octet in F major by Franz Schubert, with the world premiere of “The Eight Immortals and the Sea” by Georgia-based composer and conductor Shuying Li.
