Columbus, OH US

Columbus Dance Theatre’s beloved holiday classic Matchgirl returns for its 18th year – a highlight of the Columbus Holiday Season! This timeless tale written by Hans Christian Andersen was created as CDT’s annual family ballet more than a decade ago by CDT Artistic Director Tim Veach. It continues to move Columbus audiences with its poignant message of forgiveness, hope, and joy. CDT is pleased to continue its collaboration with the Department of Music of Ohio Wesleyan University for the production. “Associate Professor of Music Jason Hiester serves as our conductor for the production and has assembled a terrific ensemble of singers and instrumentalists for Matchgirl," says Veach. “The music for Act I of the ballet features various works by Aaron Copland, and the music for Act II is John Rutter’s Magnificat."

PAST PERFORMANCES and EVENTS

McConnell Arts Center Chamber Orchestra, Conductor

11.19.17 |3pm

Worthington , OH US

Program:
BEETHOVEN: Coriolan Overture, op. 62
MOZART: Clarinet Concerto in A Major, K. 622
SCHUBERT: Symphony No. 5 in B-flat Major, D. 485
David Thomas, clarinet

The First Viennese School or Viennese Classic denotes a style in Western art music that emerged in the 18th century and informed the music of the early 19th century. The beginning of the Classical period dates back to as early as 1720, but the music of the mature Classical period that we have come to love was refined by four composers centered around Vienna – Franz Joseph Haydn, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig van Beethoven, and Franz Schubert.

This program presents Beethoven’s impassioned Coriolan Overture, which portrays through music the drama of a Roman patrician who softens from a mindset of vengeance to one of forgiveness. The Columbus Symphony’s principal clarinetist, David Thomas, will be featured in Mozart’s beloved Clarinet Concerto. The work written shortly before Mozart’s death, showcases the sublime sound of the clarinet in a delicate interplay between soloist and orchestra. Schubert’s sunny Symphony No. 5 will round out the program. In character, the music is often said to resemble Mozart. Schubert was infatuated with the composer, writing in his diary on June 13 of the year of composition, “O Mozart! Immortal Mozart! What countless impressions of a brighter, better life hast thou stamped upon our souls!"

Chamber Music for Clarinet and String Quartet

Antoine T. Clark, clarinet

Performing:
Caprice No. 3 for Solo Clarinet- Anton Stadler
Clarinet Quintet in A Major, K. 581- W. A. Mozart
Adagio for Clarinet and Strings- Carl Baermann
Clarinet Quintet in Bb Major, Op. 34- Carl Maria von Weber

Muses have inspired many composers to write masterful works. This was in fact the case for Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Carl Maria von Weber, who each wrote quintets for the leading clarinetist of their day. Respectively, Anton Stadler and Heinrich Baermann were muses for Mozart and Weber. From these two composers we received the pillars of the clarinet’s literature composed during the Classical and Romantic periods. Not only did Mozart and Weber write clarinet quintets for their muses but they also wrote concertos, symphonies, operas, and other chamber works that featured the clarinet. Through their music, Mozart and Weber featured the clarinet as a sensual and virtuosic solo voice.

Members of the Columbus Symphony, Robert Firdman, violin; Ariane Sletner, violin; Karl Pedersen, viola and Luis Biava, cello will join clarinetist, Antoine Clark in a performance of these two great chamber works. Also, featured on the program are works by Anton Stadler and Heinrich Baermann.

Dr. Tony's Original Ragtime Band, one of only a handful of ragtime bands in the country, plays Ragtime! - simply the most popular music at the turn of the 20th century and the forerunner of jazz. Not to be confused with a Dixieland band, Dr. Tony's Original Ragtime Band is an 8-piece ensemble that plays the real thing: Scott Joplin, Jelly Roll Morton, Eubie Blake, W.C. Handy, James P. Johnson, plus the Tin Pan Alley hits of Irving Berlin and George Gershwin, and more. We bring the high-energy original American sound of dandy melodies and syncopated rhythms that no one can resist.

Dr. Tony's Original Ragtime Band is a professional ensemble made up of some of the finest musicians in the greater Columbus area. We present a variety of music, from straight ragtime to blues and early jazz to popular tunes and even classical music in ragtime style, all interspersed with lively commentary about the music, composers and their times.

Masterworks III pairs two of classical music’s revolutionaries, Ludwig van Beethoven and Dmitri Shostakovich, in a program that reaches across several musical generations. It begins with Beethoven’s Symphony No. 1 in C Major, as the Westerville Symphony continues its Beethoven cycle, which powerfully demonstrates the composer’s mastery of the Classical form, paying homage to Haydn and Mozart while illuminating an originality all its own.
In his Symphony No. 5 in D Minor, Shostakovich moved away from his some of his earlier avant garde leanings and follows the classical symphonic form, often evoking the spirit of Beethoven, creating what many believe is his most accessible symphonic work.

This special concert also features the world premiere of The Spirit of Christmas by local

Columbus composer Bradley Sowash. Integrating orchestra with the improvised stylings of a jazz trio, the piece's five movements evoke the seasonal emotions many of us experience on the annual journey from late Fall through Christmas day.
