Clarksville, TN – The Claremont Trio, widely regarded as the premier piano trio of its generation, comes to Clarksville this Friday, October 14th as part of the Clarksville Community Concert Association 2011-12 series.
The Claremont Trio is sought after for its thrillingly virtuosic and richly communicative performances. These truly remarkable and personable musicians are known to “put the life back into music” says Dr. Morton Goldberg of Lebanon, Tennessee who heard them in concert in Boston.
The Gateway Chamber Ensemble has been making waves in the tight knit classical music community since they first formed in the fall of 2008. The group kicked off their 2010-2011 concert series with what they describe as a new beginning. “The recurring thread this season will be composers we’ve heard of but approached in ways they aren’t usually done,” Dr. Gregory Wolynec, APSU associate professor of music and director of the ensemble, said. “It included works that we might not have heard of before, that don’t have a natural home. They are too small to be done by a full symphony or orchestra, and yet they are too large to be done by a typical chamber group. All our works will be done with 10 to 25 players. For most of these pieces, these are the only performances in these conditions they’ll get all year.”
The evening’s performance featured the ensembles interpretation of masterworks such as Joseph Haydn’s Symphony No. 6 “Let Matin,” Samuel Barber’s “Adagio for Strings” and Aaron Copland’s “Appalachian Spring.”
The Clarksville Community Concert Association held the fourth of their planned five concerts in their 2009-2010 Concert series with a performance by the Gateway Chamber Ensemble at Austin Peay State University on Monday evening. The Community Concert Series is co-sponsored by the APSU Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts, and brings in world class performers to give concerts in our city.
World Class is a description which easily fits the Gateway Chamber Ensemble, which is based around Austin Peay State University’s outstanding performing faculty and supplemented with the area’s leading professional musicians. Members of the ensemble include Lisa Vanarsdel-flute, Jeanette Zyko-oboe, Mingzhe Wang-clarinet, Brian Horner-saxophone, Dawn Hartley-basson, Francis Massinon-horn, Emily Hanna Crane-violin, Shu-Zheng Yang-viola, Michael Samis-cello, Timothy Pearson-bass, and the group is conducted by Gregory Wolynec. They perform milestone works of chamber music both from the past and from the present.

When you think about Paris, you can’t help but to think of the arts. In addition to the wonderful paintings from that period, Paris was also the center of what amounts to a perfect storm in music. The rise of Jazz in America had reached Paris with the influx of Americans musicians, after the end of the first World War. That was what was showcased during the Dimension’s New Music Series a free concert hosted by the Austin Peay Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts. The evenings program delved into the wonderful music that came out of the city of Paris Between the Wars: 1918-1939.
The first set featured Maurice Ravel’s Noble and Sentimental Waltzes, which were a look back at a France that could no longer exist after that city passed through the maelstrom of the first world war.
Patricia Halbeck takes her seat and The piano starts to play a series of almost harsh and somewhat discordant notes with an upbeat refrain hinting at that innocence that was lost never to be found again.
She was followed by Stanley Yates who played a selection from Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos, his Twelve Études for Guitar which was written in 1928. In his playing You could hear the intertwining of European and Latin sounds and rhythms.
For artists living in the years between World War I and World War II, only one city mattered – Paris. Ernest Hemingway scribbled down short stories in its cafes. Pablo Picasso hurried down theChamps-Élysées with paint-stained fingers to make a dinner party.
The great figures of all artistic genres came and worked in the city. But what inspired them? Maybe it was the music, created by other artists seeking the inspiration provided by Paris.
That eclectic blend of music will be the focus of the next Dimensions New Music Series Concert, “Paris Between the Wars: 1919 – 1939.” The free concert, which begins at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 14 in the APSU Concert Hall, will feature works by a wide range of musicians swept up by the city’s creativity.
