This cmh@home program features the many musical talents of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. The beautiful online concert experience includes Intermission conversations with CMS Artists and Co-Artistic Directors David Finckel and Wu Han and the artists during intermission.

 

This program demonstrates the incredibly diverse talent of Gilles Vonsattel on piano. He takes us on a journey from Beethoven’s Trio for Clarinet, Cello, and Piano to Dussek’s lament for Marie Antoinette, in The Sufferings of the Queen of France. Next, Vonsattel shares an emotional response to the 1848 Hungarian Revolution, in “Funerailles” from Franz Liszt. In the theme of protest, Frederic Rzewski’s “Winnsboro Cotton Mill Blues” provides the creative energy of the worker’s movement. In conclusion, Vonsattel introduces us to Greg Anderson, contemporary composer of Carmen Fantasy, that “weaves together several scenes from Bizet’s beloved opera.”
