This piece is based on the poems of Denise Levertov, and was commissioned by, and written for the duo.

10.6.17 Sorrows of Young Werther

Edward M. Pickman Concert Hall, 8:00 pm

Brahms was a Romantic with both an upper- and lower-case ‘r’. In this concert, his third quartet is paired with two romances by Clara Schumann, and his love for her flows through a number of Brahms’ works.

10.13.17 Gessner-Schocken Concert Series: Christopher Taylor

Edward M. Pickman Concert Hall, 8:00 pm

"Those who know the pianist Christopher Taylor tend to speak of him in the hushed, reverent tones typically reserved for natural wonders if not the otherworldly. Colleagues trip over words like "innocence," "fervor," "beauty" and "vision" in an attempt to capture his elusive personality. Critics praise his virtuosity, his cerebral interpretations tempered by an aching tenderness, his unconventional programming and his advocacy of late-20th-century music." So goes the opening of the recent New York Times preview article about this remarkable young American pianist, an artist pursuing a varied and truly acclaimed career.

10.29.17 Liberty Tree: Early Music for the American Soul

Harvard Memorial Church, 4:00 pm

Boston Camerata in collaboration with Longy School of Music of Bard College

Music, say our American ancestors, may soothe the heart, but it also sustains the search for values. This program will explore, in a present moment when American ideals are undergoing such deep challenge, the vital and life-affirming sounds of the young Republic, as its citizens sang and played forth their love of freedom and their rejection of tyranny. The rough-hewn sounds of citizen-composers, such as the Boston tanner Billings or the Vermont tavern-keeper Ingalls, still ring true and strong to our contemporary ears.

Harvard Memorial Church is located at One Harvard Yard, Cambridge, MA 02138
