Spotlight on Faculty – Music of Schubert and Kreisler
Event summary
Featuring Tyler Cassidy-Heacock, soprano; Cora Swenson Lee, cello; and Warner Iveris, guitar, performing works by Schubert and Kreisler, including pieces associated with David Hochstein. Part of Hochstein’s Centennial Celebration!
Event details

The program is built around two pieces David Hochstein is known to have played on violin: Schubert’s lied “Ave Maria” and Fritz Kreisler’s “Liebesleid.”

Schubert is now well known for his song cycles for piano and voice, but there is anecdotal evidence that he may have also played guitar. Using arrangements made by 19th-century Parisian guitarist Napoléon Coste, Tyler Cassidy-Heacock will be singing three Schubert songs accompanied Warner Iveris on guitar.

Cora Swenson Lee will perform Schubert’s famous Arpeggione Sonata, originally written for a type of bowed guitar-like instrument of the same name and piano, on cello with guitar accompaniment.

Austrian-born violinist Fritz Kreisler was one of the most famous classical musicians in the world during the first decade of the 20th century and his original compositions remain staples of the violin repertoire. Lee and Iveris will perform Kreisler’s “Liebesleid” as an homage to David Hochstein.

Since 1991, Spotlight on Faculty has highlighted the prestigious Hochstein faculty in a variety of ensembles and musical genres from chamber music and dance to jazz, contemporary, and classical.

In music, we explore various possibilities: we blend strings and winds, sticks and hammers, fuse tranquility with chaos, jest with seriousness, and walk through old and new, then and now.

This concert features diverse styles of chamber music pieces by four composers. The program includes the classical/jazz musician Claude Bolling’s swinging and playful Jazz Suites, Jewish klezmer music introduced in Shostakovich’s Piano Trio No. 2 finale, Arvo Pärt’s serene and solemn Mozart-Adagio for Piano Trio, and Alfred Schnittke’s quirky and boisterous Gogol Suite for Two Pianos.

Music matters. Making music matters more.

The Hochstein School, founded in commemoration of genius and dedicated to providing access to opportunity, is a vibrant community of musicians, dancers, and supporters who choose to come together in this historic and inspiring place to develop in themselves, and in each other, the ability to speak and communicate through the making of music and dance. We do this with the conviction that music nurtures, enriches, and energizes every human life, and that the joy of making music, and all the expressive arts that it inspires, holds the key to creating a better world.

 

 

Mission Statement

The mission of the David Hochstein Memorial Music School is to provide people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities
with access to excellent music and dance education in a community that nurtures and encourages personal achievement.
