Beethoven, Bermel, Brahms

Derek Bermel’s Tied Shifts emerged from a month making and learning music alongside Bulgarian folk clarinetist Nikola Iliev. The title refers to the complex interplay of metre, rhythm, and stress that characterizes the Thracian style – and which, to the uninitiated listener, produces the effect of a music in constant flux. Framing Bermel’s work are two Viennese classics, composed at opposite ends of the nineteenth century.

LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN
Sonata for Violin and Piano No. 6, Op. 30 No. 1
Almita Vamos, violin • Eugenia Monacelli, piano

DEREK BERMEL
Tied Shifts
Yi Xiang, flute • Ning Zhang, clarinet • Renée Jolles, violin • Daniel McDonough, cello • Peter Basquin, piano • Luke Rinderknecht, percussion

JOHANNES BRAHMS
String Quintet No. 2 in G Major, Op. 111
Itamar Zorman, Robin Scott, violin • Dimitri Murrath, Kirsten Docter, viola • Edward Arron, cello

Please join us following the performance for a reception at The Daniel.

Sponsored by HM Payson. 

 

Cost: $45.00
