Santa Cruz Chamber Players 9/18/22
September 18 @ 3:00 pm
Santa Cruz Chamber Players presents “Beethoven, Bagatelles, and Music for Winds and Piano” at Christ Lutheran Church.
Music by Beethoven, Françaix, Ligeti, Jon Scoville, Couperin performed by Ivan Rosenblum, Concert Director and Piano; Lars Johannesson, Flute; Peter Lemberg, Oboe; Erica Horn, Clarinet; Michelle Reem, Bassoon and Susan Vollmer, French Horn.
Beethoven’s 250th birthday celebrations started in 2020 and haven’t stopped yet! Proclaiming Beethoven’s genius is always in order and this concert delivers the best of the best. The bagatelle “genre” was a Ludwig favorite, so naturally we’ll include a few of his own, along with those of Couperin, Ligeti, Kapustin, and Santa Cruz’s very own Jon Scoville. For even more variety, the concert includes a rarely performed gem for wind quintet by Jean Françaix, and concludes with Beethoven’s Wind & Piano Quintet.
As a master of unconventionality in both his music and personality, we know Ludwig would applaud our unusual programming!
