Skylark Music presents Brahms at the Cathedral
May 21, 23, 26, 2013
Pianist Jane Coop has wanted for a long time to present a series of concerts devoted to the chamber music and solo piano music of one of her favourite composers – Johannes Brahms. In May 2013, in partnership with Christ Church Cathedral, this will become a reality, and Ms. Coop has invited 3 of the most distinguished chamber music musicians in North America to collaborate with her.
According to Jane Coop, “The chamber music of Brahms is, in my opinion, one of the most thrilling and moving bodies of work in all of Western music. Both performer and listener inevitably come away from a Brahms experience with a rich sense of the highest human endeavour, to say nothing of being touched at the deepest emotional level.”
Joining Ms. Coop for the series will be two musicians from New York: violinist Laurie Smukler and cellist Darrett Adkins, as well as VSO clarinetist Cris Inguanti. Each concert will include a number of solo piano pieces, a sonata for violin/piano or cello/piano, and one of the composer’s great trios.
