Program features contemporary chamber music concert

April 04, 2014 |

The Mother Lode Friends of Music, the regional organization of classical music performances, presents a program of contemporary chamber music on Sunday, April 6, starting at 2 p.m. at the Church of the Nazarene, 14050 Ridge Road in Sutter Creek.

The program features music for winds by three modern French composers: the “Trio d’Anches” (Reed Trio) for oboe, clarinet and bassoon of Pierre Max Dubois, the “Vent de Folie” (Crazy Wind) for woodwind quintet (flute, oboe, clarinet, horn and bassoon) by Didier Favre and the “Quintet in C” of woman composer Claude Arrieu.

Soprano Marie Bedard of Fiddletown, long familiar to Friends of Music audiences, makes a return appearance with two arias, “The Letter Song” and “The Willow Song,” from “The Ballad of Baby Doe” by American composer Douglas Moore.

The program concludes with the “Piano Trio No. 1″ by the young New York-based composer Patrick Zimmerli. Full of jazz and Latin motifs and engaging melodies and requiring virtuoso performances from all three players, the work has been described by Fanfare magazine, the leading journal of classical music reviews in the United States, as “sensational.”

The instrumentalists are all regular players on the Friends of Music roster: flutist Janet Telford of Soulbysville, oboist Jane Buzzard and bassoonist Gail Buzzard of Sonora, clarinetist Hank King of Pioneer and hornist Bill Minkel of Camp Connell.

Performing the Zimmerli trio are concert violinist Corina Stoian of Hayward, cellist Erik Urbina of Stockton and pianist Ron Brickman of West Point. Urbina was recently acclaimed as the cello soloist in a performance of Haydn’s second cello concerto with the Friends of Music Orchestra.

Supported by its membership base, the Friends of Music offers the concert to the public without admission charge.
