Spotlight on Faculty – Celtic-Classical Connection

20 May, 2022 7:00 PM — 20 May, 2022 8:00 PM    50 North Plymouth Avenue Rochester New York United States
Event summary
This concert explores the connection between classical music and Celtic music with works by the Italian guitar virtuoso Mauro Giuliani; the Irish harpist, singer, and composer Turlough O’Carolan; and influential Italian violinist Niccolò Paganini.
Event details

Featuring Shannon Nance, violin; Kathleen Murphy Kemp, cello; and Tim Shannon, guitar.

Giuiliani’s Serenade and Paganini’s Terzetto – both written for a trio of violin, cello, and guitar – bookend the program and represent the purely classical repertoire.

“My Lodging is on the Cold Ground” (more widely known as “Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young Charms”) is a solo guitar piece that represents a true marriage of Celtic and classical styles. The main theme is a traditional Irish melody with variations by Giuliani.

Though O’Carolan mostly wrote jigs and reels and other traditional Irish dance music, he wrote his concerto in the style of Corelli, an Italian Baroque composer whose music was popular in Ireland at the time. O’Carolan’s “Farewell to Music” was written in a more traditional Irish style.

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

Please note that masks will be required at Hochstein for all persons age 2 and older, regardless of vaccination status. Distancing is encouraged. Click here to read Hochstein's COVID safety protocols.

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