October 2015 - Turn it Up - Taos Chamber Music Group
Creativity and artistic excellence continue to be the hallmarks of the Taos Chamber Music Group’s twenty-third season. Eight programs combine chamber music masterpieces with more contemporary surprises, as well as works that reflect our home in Taos, New Mexico.
In addition to favorites by Mozart, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Schubert, Brahms, Ravel, Debussy and Fauré, highlights include a world premiere written for TCMG, an all Spanish program, a collaboration with sound and light artist Sasha vom Dorp, music and poetry informed by dreams, and the return of special guests, the American String Quartet and virtuoso pianist Gleb Ivanov.
Concerts take place in the Arthur Bell Auditorium at the Harwood Museum of Art where TCMG is the Resident Chamber Music Group. All performances begin at 5 p.m so that you can enjoy dinner out afterwards at one of our participating restaurants.
TCMG’s 23rd season opens with masterworks by Mozart and Mendelssohn featuring virtuoso Russian pianist Gleb Ivanov. An unusual arrangement of Mozart’s Symphony No. 40 for piano, flute, violin and cello will be performed as well as Mendelssohn’s Variations Serieuses in D minor, op. 54 for solo piano, Mozart’s Andante in C Major for flute and piano, and Mendelssohn’s Piano Trio No. 1 in D minor.
