Serenata of Santa Fe: Music from the heart
The program “Music from the Heart” is inspired by sensitive and poignant works of Romantic composers Robert Kahn and Robert Schumann, and the contrasting work of one of today’s young important composers, Kenji Bunch. The performers will be David Felberg, violin, Sally Guenther, cello, Pamela Epple, oboe, Scott Temple, horn, and Debra Ayers, piano
The Serenade op. 73 of German born composer Robert Kahn dates from the 1920s, though its heart is very late 19th century. It was written for the unusual combination of oboe, horn and piano in a lyrical, intimate style reminiscent of Mendelssohn, Schumann and Brahms.
German composer Robert Schumann was profoundly influenced by literature, as well as an arduous battle for the love of his life. His music truly reflects the deepest of all human emotions. The Piano Trio No. 2 in F major (op. 80) was composed in 1847 and is one of his most adventurous works harmonically.The marking of the second movement (With heartfelt expression: with sentiment) describes the mood perfectly.
Kenji Bunch’s “Nightflight” is a movement from his delightful and rhythmic Piano Trio, “Swingshift.” It interprets and masters the extreme complexities of temp and nuances with a driving, funk flavor.
Poet Patrick Donnelly has performed as an actor, worked as a professional chef and food writer, and helped to coordinate a meal program for people with life-challenging illness. His spiritual curiosity has led him, at different times, to study for the Roman Catholic priesthood and to live as a Buddhist and a Muslim. He is the author of two books of poems, an editor of “Poetry International,” and Director of the Advanced Seminar at The Frost Place, a poetry conference center at Robert Frost’s old homestead in Franconia, NH. With Stephen D. Miller, he translates classical Japanese poetry and drama.
