Music on the Hill presents "Dumka"
This Event Occurred in the Past.
The Music on the Hill series (MOTH) is pleased to present the third concert of its 2019-2020 season with a program entitled Dumka. The great Czech composer Antonin Dvořák is showcased in his eloquent and sometimes tempestuous Piano Quintet No. 2 in A Major. In addition, the Dumka program includes works by Gustav Mahler and Rebecca Clarke. Mahler, known famously for his outsized symphonies, wrote a fragment of piano quartet, giving us a glimpse into his chamber music mind. Rebecca Clarke is a pioneering female composer, whose Piano Trio, composed in 1921,Her Piano Trio, shows passion and brilliance. This performance welcomes the return of Francesca Anderegg and Nicholas Tavani on violin, Mary Jo Gothmann on piano, and MOTH artistic director Richard Belcher on cello. Violist Jenni Seo makes her MOTH debut with this concert.
