Chamber music season to open

By
October 31, 2012 |

The first concert of chamber music in the 2012-13 season of the Mother Lode Friends of Music takes place on Sunday, Nov. 11, starting at 2 p.m. at the Church of the Nazarene, 14050 Ridge Road in Sutter Creek. The concert is free and open to the public.

The concert features the return of Barcelona classical guitarist Jaume Torrent, joined by a quartet of string players, in a performance of some of history’s greatest music composed for this exceptional musical combination.

A highlight will be the world premiere of Torrent’s own composition for guitar quintet, “Music and Commitment,” a musical homage to his famed compatriot, the late cellist Pablo Casals.

Also on the program are the highly popular and familiar “Concerto for Guitar” of Antonio Vivaldi and the thrilling “Fandango” quintet of Luigi Boccherini.

The “Ricordanza di Paganini” for string trio, a medley of the great violinist’s and composer’s greatest music, will be performed as well as the atmospheric “L’Oración del Torero” (The Toreador’s Prayer) for string quartet by Spanish composer Joaquin Turina.

Torrent is one of Spain’s leading guitar virtuosos and composers for the guitar. He has performed around the world under such conductors as Philippe Entremont and Raphael Frubeck de Burgos. He recently returned from a tour of Poland and St. Petersburg, performing his own concerto “Rialp” with the Philharmonia Orchestra of Gdansk.

Local audiences will remember his stunning performance of the “Concierto de Aranjuez” with the Friends of Music Orchestra (broadcast on Calaveras Public Access TV).

Joining Torrent will be his long-time musical colleagues and favorite Friends of Music performers, violinists Joseph Gold and Debbie Dare.

As the Paganini Trio, the three have performed in concerts throughout the United States and Europe. Completing the ensemble are violist Raphael Gold, recently returned from a tour of duty as a performer in Mexico, and cellist Tom Fattaruso, a popular chamber and orchestra player based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
