Event details

Lost is My Quiet: Love Songs for Voices, Guitar, and Theorbo presents songs of Barbara Strozzi and Henry Purcell as well as music for solo guitar, exemplifying the fiery and passionate love songs of the Baroque period. Though the music was written in the 17th century, these works express emotions that resonate powerfully with our contemporary experiences. Ranging from the tortured longing illustrated by the groundbreaking female composer Barbara Strozzi in L'Eraclito Amoroso to the celebration of partnership in Henry Purcell's duet "You Say 'Tis Love," we explore the drama and beauty of Baroque love songs and instrumental music.

The Rochester Early Music Festival presents two weeks of music from the 13-17th centuries every year in celebration of the richness and depth of our region's early music community. This special repertoire includes instrumental, solo vocal, and choral music for modern and historical instruments. Most performances take place in the historic Calvary St. Andrews Church, a beautiful venue nestled in the heart of the eclectic South Wedge neighborhood, and festival offerings are largely offered free of charge or at a nominal price.

Live from Hochstein: Amenda Quartet
Event summary
Featuring the Amenda Quartet performing selections by Schubert and Beethoven.
Event details

Two towering masterworks, Schubert's String Quartet No. 13, "Rosamunde," and Beethoven's String Quartet No. 3, Op. 59, were written just 15 years apart.

Schubert's quartet, written in 1824, is typically overflowing with tunes from history's greatest melodist. 

Beethoven's string quartet was composed in 1808 around the same time as the Eroica Symphony, his Violin Concerto, and the Waldstein and Appassionata Piano Sonatas. This quartet is also in the "heroic" style and boasts a meltingly beautiful slow moment and concludes with a giant fugue, one of the most exuberant and virtuosic of all of Beethoven's creations. 

The Amenda Quartet is: David Brickman & Patricia Sun-Woo, violin; Melissa Matson, viola; Mimi Hwang, cello.

The Hochstein School’s free lunchtime “brown bag” Live from Hochstein concert series takes place in the Hochstein Performance Hall and is broadcast live on WXXI Classical 91.5/ 90.3 FM.

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.
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. A key feature of the Spotlight on Faculty concerts is that Hochstein faculty members work together to create their own program and submit proposals to perform on the series.

Each concert begins at 7:00 pm, lasts about an hour, and is followed by a “meet the artists” reception.

Admission is $10 per person, with a $20 family maximum. Concerts are free to Hochstein students/families, faculty, and staff.

The Spotlight on Faculty concert series is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

Event summary

Event details

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. At Hochstein, we work together and perform all kinds of music, be it classical, jazz, folk song, or newly created music by living composers.

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.
