AN EVENING OF CHAMBER MUSIC-“Two Dead Guys & One Live Guy”
AN EVENING OF CHAMBER MUSIC - “Two Dead Guys & One Live Guy”
We’re happy to announce another performance of our “Two Dead Guys & One Live Guy” concert, first performed this past May at the Riverdale-Yonkers Society for Ethical Culture. We are now moving downtown a bit to the Upper West Side in the lovely sanctuary of Christ and St. Stephen’s Church where Jim Lahti will be joined again by Timothy Maureen Cole, soprano; Jeff Adler, clarinet; and Matt Goeke, ‘cello performing works of Ludwig Van Beethoven (dead), Gerald Finzi (dead), and – at least as this is typed, Jim Lahti (not dead).
As well as the delightful and somewhat quirky “Trio for Clarinet, ‘Cello, and Piano” by Beethoven and the lyrical “Five Bagatelles for Clarinet and Piano” by Gerald Finzi, we will also be performing Jim Lahti’s “Four Love Poems” on texts of poet Theodore Roethke, “Six Poems of Robert Mitchell for Soprano, Clarinet, and Piano”, “Sonata for “Cello and Piano” – dedicated to Mr. Goeke, and “Portraits for Clarinet, “Cello, and Piano”, dedicated to Mr. Adler.
