Monday at last – Day 3

The Monday At Last concert series celebrates 10 years with a jam-packed chamber music festival: Monday All Week!

Monday All Week is exactly what it sounds like: Monday At Last concerts every day, with tons of guests.

Max Bruch is primarily known for his divinely beautiful and masterful Violin Concerto. Sometimes it seems as if this distracts listeners from all the other pieces by this German composer, who wrote a great number of orchestral works and instrumental concertos, songs and three operas. He also composed a piano trio, two string quartets and a bouquet of Swedish Dances for Violin and Piano (!). And of course, this beautiful String Octet, which the trio ZilliacusPerssonRaitinen will perform with Cuarteto Quiroga and violinist Irina Simon-Renes.

As the title suggests, American composer George Crumb’s Vox Balaenae – Voice of the Whale – is inspired by whale song. The piece is composed for electric flute and amplified piano; it is dedicated to and was premiered by the New York Camerata. For contrast, we will also hear music by Joseph Haydn and Francis Poulenc.
