Program: Ives Sonatas Stefan Jackiw and Jeremy Denk are recognized as two of today’s most significant chamber music artists, captivating audiences with playing that combines purity of expression with impeccable technique. Having performed together for the better part of a decade, they have developed such a natural rapport that one reviewer speculated that “the legendary 19th-century recitals of violinist Joseph Joachim and pianist Clara Schumann couldn’t have sounded better than Jackiw and Denk”? (Seattle Times). But leave it to the ever-candid Denk to define his recital partner best: “Stefan’s a rare combo: super-smart, perhaps even analytical, but not remotely cold or cynical. He helps you to remember that classical music is not just erudite crap for snobs and nerds–it’s supposed to take your exhausted, stultified synapses and give them a thrill they won’t soon forget.”

Music and intrigue from the court of Frederick the Great fill this noble program. A standard-setting hub of ideas and influence throughout much of the Enlightenment, Frederick’s court employed C.P.E. Bach, son of J.S. Bach, whose progressive music the king preferred over his famous father’s. Yet the elder Bach would prove his mettle: after being challenged by Frederick to improvise over a complex 21-note theme the king had written, Bach responded with his sublime Musical Offering—the heart of which is heard here alongside music by the king’s court composers of choice: Quantz, who taught Frederick the flute; Graun, who served as his Kapellmeister; and C.P.E. himself, rumored to be the real author of the Musical Offering theme. Program also being performed at the Brooklyn Museum on April 29 at 2:00 PM.

Mozart: Requiem

What is it about Mozart's Requiem that makes it a perennial favorite? From the time it was completed in 1792 by Mozart's student Franz Süssmayer, it has never been out of the repertoire. Perhaps the appeal lies in its sheer beauty and the intimacy, not always apparent in large-scale performances, with which Mozart sets this timeless text. With characteristic genius and grace, Mozart connects musical and spiritual realms, and by overlaying the natural restraints of neoclassicism with the passion of Romanticism, he depicts in music the peace of eternal rest alongside the bone-chilling fear of eternal torment. Composed just as Mozart was reaching the height of his creative powers, the Requiem offers exquisite melodies, rich orchestration, and a dramatic sweep that remain compelling after more than two centuries. The program also includes Michael Tippett's Five Spirituals from A Child of Our Time, stunning arrangements of African-American spirituals that form the structural pillars of this World War II oratorio.

Music and intrigue from the court of Frederick the Great fill this noble program. A standard-setting hub of ideas and influence throughout much of the Enlightenment, Frederick’s court employed C.P.E. Bach, son of J.S. Bach, whose progressive music the king preferred over his famous father’s. Yet the elder Bach would prove his mettle: after being challenged by Frederick to improvise over a complex 21-note theme the king had written, Bach responded with his sublime Musical Offering—the heart of which is heard here alongside music by the king’s court composers of choice: Quantz, who taught Frederick the flute; Graun, who served as his Kapellmeister; and C.P.E. himself, rumored to be the real author of the Musical Offering theme. Program also being performed at the The Church of St. Luke in the Fields on April 23 at 8:00 PM.
