Shandelee Music Festival: An Evening of Chamber Music featuring Neave Trio - The Boston-based Neave Trio will perform a concert presented as part of the Shandelee Music Festival. The concert will be performed for a live audience at the Shandelee Music Festival's Sunset Concert Pavilion and livestreamed online. Tickets are available for purchase at https://shandelee.org/sunset_series/evening-of-chamber-music-6/, and instructions to watch the stream will be sent to registrants via email. Neave Trio's program includes Rachmaninov's Trio élégiaque No. 1 in G minor, Ravel's Piano Trio in A minor, and Brahms' Piano Trio No. 1 in B Major, Op. 8. Neave will record this masterful program on Chandos Records during the 2021-2022 season. Rachmaninov was inspired to write Trio élégiaque No. 1 after hearing Tchaikovsky's Piano Trio in A Minor, which was composed in memory of Tchaikovsky's deceased friend Nicolai Rubinstein. Though Rachmaninov composed his trio when he was just 19 years old, it is completely characteristic of his compositional brilliance which would continue to develop in his adult life. Brahms' Piano Trio No. 1 was the first of the composer's chamber works to be published. The work is notably grand in both scope and sound, often emulating an orchestral symphony within its organization and harmonic structure. Ravel composed his only piano trio after nearly six years of sketching and planning. But following the beginning of World War I in 1914, Ravel was motivated to quickly complete the work before enlisting in the French army. In a letter to Igor Stravinsky, he wrote, "The idea that I should be leaving at once made me get through five months' work in five weeks! My Trio is finished." click here

Muzzy Ridge Concerts presents: Duo Coquelicot - Composer Robert Sirota launches the inaugural season of a new concert series, Muzzy Ridge Concerts, with two performances in August. Both concerts will take place in the studio where Sirota has composed much of his music over the past 35 years, in Searsmont, Maine. Concerts will be approximately 60 minutes long, without intermission. Indoor seating is limited to 40 vaccinated patrons, with some additional outdoor seating. The address and directions will be supplied to ticket buyers. On Sunday, August 15, 2021 at 3pm, Duo Coquelicot - Grammy-nominated flutist Carol Wincenc ("Queen of the flute," New York Magazine), and Boston-based Parisian cellist Velléda Miragias, with Sirota at the piano - will give a concert featuring a wide-ranging program that includes the music of J.S. Bach, Haydn, Fauré, Debussy, Saint-Saëns, and Villa-Lobos, plus a new work by Meira Warschauer. The duo will also perform Robert Sirota's 2016 piece, Broken Places. Robert Sirota says of Muzzy Ridge Concerts: "Since 1986, we have owned a home on a 10-acre property in the town of Searsmont in central coastal Maine: a landscape of small farms, low-bush blueberry fields, and woodlots inhabited by deer, wild turkeys, numerous species of birds, and the occasional moose, black bear, and coyote. Our home sits on a gently sloping parcel on the eastern side of Muzzy Ridge. It is in this setting that I have composed many works in the past 35 years. About ten years ago, we built an 800-square-foot studio onto our house: the perfect intimate venue for chamber music. You are invited to join us for two special events inaugurating Muzzy Ridge Concerts. We hope that these two Sunday afternoons in August will be the start of annual celebrations of chamber music in this place we love." click here
