Portland Chamber Music Festival: Homecoming

8/19/21

A musical immersion in four centuries of human expression, commemoration, and celebration from around the world.

Immerse yourself in four centuries of human expression, commemoration, and celebration from around the world. English composer Arnold Bax had an intense love of Ireland, and his otherworldly Elegiac Trio, a tribute to the tragic aftermath of the 1916 Easter Uprising, “bear[s] the scars of some just-healed wound” (AllMusic). Disco-Toccata is a musical “adrenaline pill” by one of today’s most acclaimed French composers, and a dazzling lead-in to a set of works for solo guitar, the mellifluous Nadiya (“rivers” in Hindi), and Saint-Saëns’ charming Fantaisie. The program closes with the festive humor and colorful pyrotechnics of Weber’s beloved Clarinet Quintet.
