Presented by Context at Rice University - Alice Pratt Brown Hall - Duncan Recital Hall
January 13, 2013
CONTEXT, a Houston-based chamber-music ensemble, presents CONTEXT: Faure, Sunday, January 13 at 4pm in Rice University-Duncan Recital Hall.
CONTEXT presents two major works by French master Gabriel Faure.
The rarely-heardSecond Piano Quartet is startling in its invention and drama, prescient in its innovation, and ravishing in its melodic and harmonic beauty. The gorgeous song-cycle 'La Bonne Chanson' is performed in Faure's lush version for voice with chamber ensemble.
The piano used for this concert is a stunning 1890 Bluthner, a favorite instrument of the French Late-Romantics.
Led by violinist Stephanie Chase (pictured above), the program features the CONTEXT debuts of violinist Aloysia Friedmann and the great American baritone, William Sharp.
