Extractions: *** PROGRAMME NOTES *** JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH (1685-1750) For music lovers more familiar with the rigorous Bach of the Well-tempered Clavier or the pious Bach of the cantatas, the joyous and carefree Italian Concerto (1735) will come as a delightful surprise. Bach was a great admirer of the Italian composers of his day and, in accordance with the then accepted practice, he freely appropriated Italian themes, stylistic ideas, indeed entire works for his own purposes. The Italian Concerto , a brilliant reworking of a violin concerto borrowed from Vivaldi, is considered a superb example of Bachs genius in marrying the clarity and melodic transparency of the Italian style with the sturdy musical architecture of the German school.

Extractions: The only appellation that seems appropriate for Austrian Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) is genius. He had by the age of 8 performed for Emperor Francis I of Vienna, France's Louis XIV and Marie Antoinette and England's George III. Mozart's father, Leopold, a man of mild musical talents, was the assistant director of the Archbishop's chapel, an author of a treatise on violin playing and a composer of some ability and reputation. Mozart's prodigious musical apparatus caused his father to abandon all other ambitions and devote himself solely to handling his son's musical education. Mozart made many public performances between the ages of seven and fifteen, often with his older sister Nannerl. Concerts involved not only performing existing works, but also reading concertos at sight and improvising variations and fugues. His many trips abroad meant Mozart came into contact with myriad contemporary music and all of the leading musicians of the day. "Papa" Haydn exclaimed to Leopold that, "Before God and as an honest man I tell you that your son is the greatest composer known to me either in person or by name. He has taste and, what is more, the most profound knowledge of composition."

Extractions: Sunday, March 9, 2003 A growth spurt at 60 is rare, but the Chamber Music Society of Detroit knows when it's time to celebrate. In honor of its 60th anniversary season, the society is expanding its 2003-04 series from eight to nine concerts. Also featured will be a non-subscription performance by cellist Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble. The season includes an exceptional number of high-profile recitals, including Russian baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky. The society has sharpened its artistic profile in recent years, presenting a wider variety of artists, repertoire and special events. Subscriptions are also at an all-time high 513. Many concerts sell out the 720-seat Seligman Performing Arts Center in Beverly Hills [Chamber Music Society president Lois] Beznos said the preponderance of recitals this year was less a matter of planning than a happy coincidence. Also on the bill are return appearances by the Juilliard String Quartet, the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio with violinist Jennifer Koh, and the Shanghai Quartet with violinist Arnold Steinhardt and pianist Rieko Aizawa.
MSO: Jon Kimura Parker, Piano negotiated daunting technical thickets, conductor John DeMain brought himself andthem to feverpitched intensity, and pianist jon kimura parker earned two well http://www.madisonmusicreview.org/doc/r_199903_mso.html
Extractions: In the Madison Symphony Orchestra's penultimate subscription pair the players negotiated daunting technical thickets, conductor John DeMain brought himself and them to fever-pitched intensity, and pianist Jon Kimura Parker earned two well-deserved standing ovations. In a way topping even that, the program itself was a tribute and a challenge to performers and audience alike: three very serious works, none of them commonly heard these days. Parker's command of the solo part in Schumann's Piano Concerto in A Minor was as close to note-perfect as it gets. Verging on a quibble, I would have preferred a somewhat less driving bravura in the first-movement cadenza, but there was also ample very poetic playing there and everywhere else in the score. The audience response was hugely enthusiastic, prompting Parker to offer a brief but brilliant jazz encore, Art Tatum's improvization on "Running Wild." New to me, Parker is quite a find, and I hope we can have him back.
