Quotes & Highlights
- “The best chamber music reason to get out of the house” --Los Angeles Times
Camerata Pacifica highlights masters of the twentieth century and pays tribute to their predecessors in February’s thoughtfully curated series of concerts, featuring works by Penderecki, Kurtág, Bartók, Kodály, Schnittke and Schumann.
Artistic Director, Adrian Spence, says, “This music is the work of serious musicians responding to complicated times. That two of the works pay homage to other composers reflects the twentieth century’s great musical struggle: how to move music forward in the present without losing sight of the past.”
Performed by Principal Violist Richard Yongjae O’Neill, Penderecki’s fierce Cadenza for Solo Viola reflects the composer’s egalitarian style, blending tradition and innovation, consonance and dissonance. Other works include Bartók’s Sonata No. 2, Kodály’s Serenade for Two Violins and Viola Schumann’s Märchenerzählungen, Kurtág’s Hommage a R. Sch., (a brilliant tribute to Schumann’s character pieces,) and Schnittke’s Praeludium in Memoriam D. Shostakovich. Joining O’Neill are Principal Violinist Catherine Leonard, violinist Nurit Pacht, clarinetist Carol McGonnell and pianist Kevin Fitz-Gerald.
Called “the best chamber music reason to get out of the house” (Los Angeles Times), Camerata Pacifica, now in its 18th season, undertakes its first international tour in April 2008. Major chamber music venues on the tour are the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.; the Morgan Library in New York; London’s Wigmore Hall; the National Concert Hall in Dublin; the Guildhall in Derry; and St. Anne’s Cathedral in Belfast.
