Poet Emily Dickinson
A note from Artistic Director Stephanie Chase: Please join us for a concert that explores new and recently-discovered music composed between 1800 and 2012.
We will feature the premiere of “At last, to be identified!” – with poetry by Emily Dickinson in a new chamber music setting by the American composer Richard Pearson Thomas (born 1957) – along with works by Mendelssohn and Paganini that were first published in 1953 and 2009, respectively. The Piano Trio No. 2 by Camille Saint-Saëns concludes the program and is a work that I “discovered” only last year and want to share with you.
Violinist Stephanie Chase will be joined by cellist James Wilson, pianist Todd Crow, and soprano Hope Hudson.
The concert will take place at Christ & St. Stephen’s Church, located at 120 West 69th Street, New York, NY and will begin at approximately 8:15 pm. Admission is at the door: $30, $15 student/seniors, requested contribution, cash or check only. Please note that the doors open at 7:15 pm.
Pre-concert talk at 7:30 by Stewart Pollens (included in concert admission): Casino Paganini

The opening season of Le Salon de Musiques, an ensemble of Los Angeles’ most renowned chamber music performers, continues its season of eight concerts with Debussy, Saint-Saens and Ravel, performed on the 5th floor of the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion on Sunday, March 20, 2011. The one-hour concert, which will feature Debussy’s Sonata in Trio for Flute, Viola and Harp L 137, Saint-Saens’ Fantasie in A for Harp and Violin opus 124 and Ravel’s String Quartet in F Major will be followed by a one-hour interactive discussion between the musicians and the audience where they will share ideas, concepts and impressions about the music performed, while enjoying French Champagne provided by Montesquieu and a gourmet buffet prepared by Patina. Tickets are $65 (that includes the food and Champagne!) and can be purchased by going to www.lesalondemusiques.com or calling (310) 498-0257.
By removing the stage, Le Salon de Musiques offers a more personal touch to listeners eager to familiarize themselves with Chamber Music. The goal is to bring together an audience of disparate backgrounds…music lovers who believe that this form of melodic artistry brings out the best in humanity.
The series of eight concerts are performed every third Sunday of the month through May 15, 2011 between 4:00pm – 6:00pm on the 5th floor of the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.
