Chamber music has often been the most intimate and complex work of composers. In this edition of the Dazzle Classical Music Series, we will present musical conversations in their most intimate setting–music for two performers. This will be an evening of classical duets by some of the finest performers in the Rocky Mountain area.
A diverse group of composers and combinations await us, including:
The famous duos for two violins by Bela Bartok, a piece for clarinet and cello by the exotic Greek composer Iannis Xenakis , two operatic duets by Emmerich Kalman and Amilcare Ponchielli for soprano and baritone, a duet for two percussionists titled 49th St. Rondo by Wayne Siegel, a set of haunting vocalise by Ralph Vaughn Williams for soprano, and a brilliant set of songs for tenor and guitar based on a famous composer’s personal letters by another brilliant American composer, Dominick Argento.
The performers will be stellar: members of the CSO, university professors and graduate students, and leading freelance artists. As usual, we will also feature a young student performer.
We hope you can join us for this entertaining evening. It will be a perfect opportunity to sit back, relax with a cold Dazzle cocktail, and enjoy superb musicianship and fascinating composing.
