The Up­lands Cham­ber Play­ers Con­cert

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Len­noxville

TheU­p­lands Cham­ber Play­ers will be un­veil­ing a won­der­ful se­lec­tion of ro­man­tic rare gems on Satur­day Novem­ber 19th at 8 pm in St. An­drew’s Pres­by­te­rian Church (256 Queen street, Sher­brooke in the Bor­ough of Len­noxville). The Trio mem­bers in­clude Ch­eryl Stroud, who is an ex­pe­ri­enced soloist and cham­ber mu­si­cian and is also a vo­cal coach; Erich Kory whose cello ca­reer in­cludes live per­for­mance tours with com­pa­nies such as the Cirque du Soleil as well as col­lab­o­ra­tions with artists such as Leonard Bern­stein and St­ing; and Pauline Far­ru­gia who has been per­form­ing solo and cham­ber mu­sic for over 25 years and has worked with en­sem­bles such as the Cathe­dral Bluffs Sym­phony, the Slee Sin­foni­etta, the So­ciété de Musique Con­tem­po­raine du Québec to name a few.

These three tal­ented mu­si­cians will be pre-Saint- sent­ing works by Camille

Saëns, Samuel Barber, Michael Glinka and Ladis­las de Ro­hozin­ski. This last com­poser has a re­cent lo­cal con­nec­tion in that de Ro­hozin­ski’s grand­son, Olivier (along with his wife, Beatrice), has be­come a res­i­dent of Sher­brooke over the last few years. This French com­poser was a con­tem­po­rary of Claude De­bussy and Al­bert Rous­sel. His mu­sic is won­der­fully im­pres­sion­is­tic and the duet for clar­inet and cello that is on the evening’s pro­gram is sure to please any­one who loves the mu­sic of these other French com­posers. The Rus­sian com­poser Michael Glinka is per­haps best known for his opera “Rus­lan and Lud­mila” but his cham­ber mu­sic is rarely ever heard. On this oc­ca­sion the Up­lands Cham­ber Play­ers will be per­form­ing his Trio Pathé­tique for clar­inet, cello and pi­ano, a won­der­fully ro­man­tic work. Com­plet­ing this pro­gram of new dis­cov­er­ies will be Samuel

Saint-Barber’s Cello Sonata opus 6 and Camille Saëns’ Clar­inet Sonata opus 167. These two large works are main sta­ple reper­toire for each of their re­spec­tive in­stru­ments and they present a daunt­ing chal­lenge for both recital­ist and pi­anist.

Tick­ets are now on sale at The Up­lands Cul­tural

Speid-( 564- and Her­itage Cen­tre (9, rue 819) 0409). Reser­va­tions for this event are strongly rec­om­mended.
