Merz Trio Presents: Macbeth

Following concerts with visual artists, novelists and chefs, Merz Trio finishes its first season with its most ambitious cross-disciplinary concert experience to date:

MACBETH

Merz Trio reimagines Shakespeare's play as a theatrical, immersive concert experience. This through-performed show brings together passages from the play with a program of music that recreates the haunting, brooding atmosphere of the original drama. Dance soloist Caroline Copeland lends her talents to a program that interweaves music, text, movement, narrative, and more. Featuring trios of Beethoven, Brahms, Schumann and Charlotte Bray, as well as arrangements of works of Haydn, Verdi, and Shostakovich.

Stay tuned for more details.

YIVO and CANTATA PROFANA present Mahler's 'Das Lied Von Der Erde'

For this program YIVO joins forces with the young, “intrepid” (New Yorker) vocal and instrumental chamber ensemble Cantata Profana to present Gustav Mahler’s epic song symphony, Das Lied von der Erde (The Song of the Earth) in Arnold Schoenberg and Rainer Riehn’s chamber orchestra arrangement. The program places this work in the context of its German and Jewish milieu pairing it with short works by Arnold Schoenberg, Johann Strauss IIGiacomo Meyerbeer, and Louis Lewandowski, as well as a new work by composer Alex Weiser. Alex Weiser will introduce the program with a brief discussion of Mahler’s Jewish identity, both from Mahler’s perspective and from that of those around him.

MERZ TRIO plays BRAHMS AT THE NYACK LIBRARY

Merz Trio presents "Brahms - Summer, 1886," featuring three of the composer's most striking and contrasting chamber works from that year: the sweet-tempered A Major Violin Sonata, the brilliant and passionate F Major Cello Sonata, and the tempestuous, inspired C minor Piano Trio. Brahms often performed these three works together himself as set, though they are rarely programmed together today. Merz Trio recreates that historic program.
