"The Joy of Fritz Kreisler" Fritz Kreisler was born in 1875 in Vienna.  He made astounding advancement in his violin studies, entering the Vienna Conservatory at the age of 7 and completing his studies at the Paris Conservatory as a 12 year old.  After a couple years of touring, he was refused a position with his hometown Vienna Philharmonic. He left the violin to pursue studies in art and medicine and became an officer in the Austrian Army. He returned to the violin and performed worldwide for the next 40 years to critical and popular acclaim.  His programs were rich with compositions of his, that were written in the style of generations of composers before him.  His compositions show technical mastery and great charm.

“Strauss Family Spectacular”

 

    Enjoy this year end celebration of a very successful musical family. Johann Strauss I organized a highly praised orchestra and provided it with hundreds of compositions answering the popularity of a growing public enthusiasm for  dance and the waltz in particular. He made vigorous efforts to dissuade his sons from pursing music but failed in this regard – all three of his sons performed, conducted and composed.  We will play great examples from each of the brothers and their father in arrangements made especially for the Trillium Piano Trio.

“Gabriel Faure Flourishes”

 

            We present a program of the music of Gabriel Faure.  His music represents the gentle transition from the restrictions of the tonal system.  He employed many of the harmonic devices of Richard Wagner in a refined and elegant style. His music is classical in its balance and organization and romantic in its enriched harmonic palette.  His music is a perfect fit for chamber music performances-he wrote no symphonies or concerti. We’ll present several of his well known works along with a few of our treasured discoveries.

"Pablo de Sarasate: The Queen Violinist"
Remarkable natural ability evident from a young age
combined with great support and instruction resulted
in one of the great violinists of the 19th century.  Pablo
de Sarasate benefitted from his youthful exposure to music
in general and the violin in particular. Drawing from his
recollections from youth he composed memorable and
distinctive Spanish themed pieces years after his departure
from Spain at age 12.

"Water Music"


From a trickle to a torrent, there is music in the motion of water.  At

times the serenity and immensity is a comforting presence. When driven

by a storm or excess the sound can be urgent and imposing.  We've

found water in the sea, river, lake and brook portrayed in music.  No

less important in spite of it's small scale is the music in tears.

"Love Notes; music of Frederic Chopin"


Chopin employed his prodigious technical skill

on the piano to craft compelling compositions frequently

as expressions of love. Some of the expressions are

specific as in the dedications and gifts of pieces. Others

are more general but no less heartfelt, as the love of the

country which infused polonaises and mazurkas

composed throughout his life. Some show a joy and an

ardor we can sense immediately, while others share

something bordering on melancholy or anguish.

"Bach and Bach Again"



There is something inevitable about the

music of J. S. Bach. Although orphaned at 10, he

represented a bright spot in over 2 centuries

of continuous music making by the Bach family.

In spite of the struggles and obstacles, J. S. Bach

emerged as one of musics greatest creators.

From his masterful solo works for the violin, cello

and keyboard, to wonderful concerted music

as his sonatas and concerti, Bach's catalogue is

full of memorable, compelling compositions.

For this concert we will present music of J. S. Bach

 as well as his sons, who helped shape the musical

style to follow.

music).  His first employment came as a violinists in poplular orchestras

and then in theater orchestras. His rhythms are varied and vigorous, his

harmonies rich and pleasing and his melodies are sure to stay in your

as well as stir your heart.

 Nordic Notes



We readh north to lesser-known composers from
the Nordic countries.  While many of our examples
come composers strongly influenced or educated by
European composers, there is a character which
shines through attesting to the strength of the influence
of their native lands. Grieg, Svendsen, Gade and
Sibelius are just a few of the composers whose works
we will present.

"Vivacious Vivaldi"

There was a period of time when the music of Vivaldi had run its course with the concert-going public.  It's difficult to imagine that period lasted from 1750 to 1926.   With the propitious discovery and publication of a large collection of rare editions and manuscripts, the world heard the second most recorded Baroque composer's music again, fresh as it ever was.
  Our challenge will be to bring this concert to conclusion.  Come hear the joyous sounds of this composer, teacher, opera impresario, vrtuoso violinist, priest and knight and imagine the treasures still left to be unearthed.

"Gypsy Journey"

 After their expulsion from Northern India about 1500 years ago, the Gypies (or Romani) experienced slavery, death sentences, beatings and exclusion from standard rights as they gradually spread across Europe and eventually to the Americas.  While enduring deplorable treatment in almost every region, the Romani maintained a nomadic lifestyle and practiced refined crafts and age-old traditions. The music we will present comes from composwers inspired by hearing their traditional music. Liszt, Lehar and Lecuona are just a few composers who willingly acknowledged the source of these poignant, exuberant and varied pieces.

Recognized as an American original, Ragtime
 represents the successful blending of African
drumming, British Isles fiddle and hornpipe tunes
 and European dance music with a premium on
 the vitality of the rhythm. The treble part is
characterized by frequent (almost continuous)
 syncopation over a steady eighth note bass
outlining the harmony.Our selections will

legendary Tom Turpin and the obscure
 Louis Chauvin.

  "Handel"
 
 Handel's early musical efforts were surreptitious,
  self-directed and they were scorned by his father. We can
  only wonder at the disappointment expressed by Handel's
 father when G. F. Handel left the study of law to pursue
 music. He became an able violinist and superb keyboardist.
He wrote music in all fields pursued at that time and was
 an acknowledged master at most. His organ concertos and
concerti grossi provided incidental music for his very
  popular operas. He redirected his skills to writing oratorios
when the opera  seria lost favor.

"Romance"

 

 Let our selections speak for a vast variety of heartfelt expressions.  Romance appears frequently as a movement title, especially in the romantic and modern eras, but was also employed in the classical era as well.
    At times poignant, pensive or plaintive, the romance can be reflective of the composers personal life or a response to inspiration as in the cases of Clara Schumann and Antonin Dvorak.
        The title doesn't refer to a specific form, but offers a context for music of ardent and urgent nature such as the music of Sergei Rachmaninoff.

     Come and celebrate an early birthday observation for a much respected and beloved violinist and composer.
     From his earliest efforts playing in the family music circles to his signal successes winning and sharing first prize honors in the Vienna and Paris Conservatories as a 10 and 13 year old, Fritz Kreisler showed great command of the violin and a profound gift as an interpreter.

    His success as a touring artist was prodigious and marked by breadth and volume. He traveled extensively and worked tirelessly. His reputation can now rest on the wonderful pieces he created to enrich his own concerts.

Bright Baroque

We can rely on the titans of the 18th century for sparkling streams of beauty and splendor. Bach offers profound thoughts illuminated by organization and logic. Vivaldi polished the beauty of singing lines with brilliant figuration. Handel takes the best of both of these and makes a most memorable sound. From a musical era founded on the mission of expressing human emotion, hardly a discouraging sound will be heard

Reflect and Rejoice 
    Music's place in enhancing reverential moments is timeless.  As an expression of joy, music has almost no limits.  From the cathedral to the castle, from public places to private salons, thoughtful, prayerful and celebratory music abounds.  Bach spent much of his career in charge of church music and offers music from cantatas which could provide service music for a church for 3 years without repetition. Handel offers great compositions from his many oratorios, a genre he approached in his mature years after he had already experienced great success in composing opera.  With Schubert and Schumann the expressions become more intense, both in devotion in a religious vein and joyous expression in the world.
 Let your mind wander through the varied venues as we present our collection of thoughtful and thankful music.

Beethoven Resounding

 

 

Mozart's assessment of a 19 year old Beethoven was that the world would hear much from this man. From his first published works to the performance of the 9th and final symphony (which he conducted, already completely deaf for 30 years), Beethoven produced music of great vitality, vivid imagination and stirring drama. Beethoven was a pivotal figure in the end of the classical era and development of the romantic movement. His replacement of the menuetto with the more rigorous scherzo, expansion of classic forms, use of cycle form, increasing the intensity of expression and breaking free of the patronage system all pointed to the next century of music. We'll play arrangements of a scherzo from an early symphony, a movement from his only opera and a trio that Joseph Haydn recommended withholding from a publication for fear of public disapproval.

"Our Schumann Romance"

           I cannot imagine a better couple than Robert and Clara Schumann as husband and wife as well as composers and performers.  Although Robert ended his piano performing career in a misguided attempt at a shortcut to dexterity, he worked as a conductor.  Although Clara has many compositions from her early years, she composed infrequently, focusing on helping the family finances by performing. Clara was the inspired performer of Robert's challenging and innovative pieces and Robert was the guide constant source of encouragement to Clara's varied repertoire.  Although brief, their relationship brought 8 children and a wealth of wonderful music.

     "Roots"      
 
   How often do we relish the flavor and revel
in the vitality of those two American products:
Jazz and Blues? It's difficult to imagine the style,
mood, method and richness not there to elevate,
propel, and transport us with spontaneity and
power.
   We'll play early examples of Jazz and Blues
and examine the connections with sources and
styles that preceded them. We'll bend some
notes, run some changes and swing that thing.

"Travels with Turina"  
 
There is the appeal of the exotic in Joaquin
Turina's early life.  His birthplace of Seville 
conjures thoughts of the varied influences
and thousands of years of turmoil. For
Turina it was too provincial and he left
for studeis in Madrid.  After 3 years of
stimulation from a more developed musical
community, Turina left for Paris in hopes of
furthering his study as a composer as well
as a pianist. There is a luster to the names
of the company he keptwhile in Paris;
Manuel de Falla, Isaac Albeniz, Maurice
Raveland Claude Debussy.  They were
supportive and figuredprominently in
Turina's decision to focus on writing music
of aSpanish nature. In his music, we can
savor the stimulation of the synthesis of
the rich culture and creative exchange.
We will play pieces which are Spanish
and timeless, refined and rhapsodic.
