New this year! We’ve moved our usual Wild Wednesday fare to Fridays and turned Wednesdays into an evening of exploration and discovery. You can expect to dive deeply into the music and learn a few things about yourself, too.
All Fresh Perspectives concerts take place in the Dunlop Pavilion (new location) at 7:30 pm – $35.
Discover your musical tastes in this varied program that highlights the unexpected familiarities in new music and the experimentation of the old! The music of Mozart and Vivaldi is paired with a world premiere commission by Daron Hagen and a stunning sonata by unsung Romantic heroine Louise Farrenc. Featuring violinists Elisabeth Adkins, Gerald Greer, Sharan Leventhal, Jim Lyon, John Meisner, Andrea Schultz, and Ross Monroe Winter – in addition to all of the Academy strings under the direction of Stephen Mulligan.
We begin this concert with an exploration of one of the most iconic pieces of transformation ever written: Schoenberg’s romantic Transfigured Night. We’ll provide musical examples to guide you through this epic work inspired by the poetry of Richard Dehmel. The evening concludes with Dvořák’s feisty and joyous Piano Quartet, Opus 87.
We have heard about Beethoven’s early, middle, and late periods, but do we really hear the evolution of his musical style? In this unique concert format, we present three distinctly different Beethoven string quartets. Veritas Vineyard & Winery and Andrew Hodson will be on hand with carefully selected wine pairings chosen to highlight this composer’s artistic transformation.
This unique evening of music, art, and storytelling features the singer-songwriter stylings of guest artist Natalia Zukerman with classical selections performed by Wintergreen Festival Artists – all telling the tales of the bold and powerful women who have influenced our artistry.
