Oct. 26, Richmond Public Library

The Aeolus Quartet – violinists Nicholas Tavani and Rachel Shapiro, violist Gregory Luce and cellist Alan Richardson – opened the Chamber Music Society of Central Virginia’s 2013-14 season, “Aspects of Time,” in performances over the weekend at the Ellen Glasgow House and in the Gellman Room of the Richmond Public Library.

I was unable to attend the Oct. 25 Glasgow House gala because it conflicted with the eighth blackbird-Agua Dulce Dance Theatre evening of premieres at the University of Richmond (scroll down for review); but did make it to a sampler of string quartet history that the Aeolus staged before a full house at the library.

The sampler included movements of the three works played the night before – Haydn’s Quartet in D major, Op. 76, No. 5; Beethoven’s Quartet in F major, Op. 59, No. 1 (first of the “Razumovsky” set); and Christopher Theofanidis’ “Ariel Ascending” – as well as bits of Beethoven’s Quartet in B flat major, Op. 18, No. 6, and Sibelius’ “Voces intimae” (“Intimate Voices”) Quartet and “Black Bend,” a miniature tone poem by Dan Visconti.

The ensemble, which performed for the Chamber Music Society two years ago, nicely balances warm, robust tone with sharp focus and high energy. Its members also are audience-friendly musical guides in their spoken introductions. Adding to their local appeal, cellist Richardson is Richmond-bred.

The Haydn and Beethoven selections gave sound evidence that the Aeolus’ musicians, like many young string players, have absorbed the technical and interpretive lessons of the historically informed performance (HIP) movement, without going full tilt into its more provocative or pedantic practices.

In the slow movement of the Sibelius, a wrenching memento of the composer’s battle with throat cancer, the group reverted to a more traditionally romantic string style. And the foursome proved expert in the more virtuosic, color-centric and effects-laden techniques of contemporary music in the Theofanidis and Visconti pieces.

The finale of “Ariel Ascending” showcased the Aeolus’ technique as the players negotiated its jittery figures and generally frenetic energy (Ariel’s ascent doesn’t quite break the speed of sound, but comes close). Violinists Tavani and Shapiro audibly relished the nature and train-whistle effects in “Black Bend,” Visconti’s evocation of a famous train wreck on a river bend in northern Ohio.

“Black Bend,” which appears to exist in string quartet, quintet and orchestra versions, is a bluesy delight clearly indebted to country-bluegrass fiddling – the whistle effects recall Lester Flatt’s in the Flatt & Scruggs rendition of “The Wreck of the Old 97.”

Visconti’s 7-minute piece is one of the finest examples of folksy classicism this side of Peter Schickele. You can see and hear the Aelous perform a bit of it here:

with Agua Dulce Dance Theatre
Oct. 25, University of Richmond

The new-music sextet eighth blackbird opened its 10th season in residence at the University of Richmond with the premiere of Amy Beth Kirsten’s “Colombine’s Paradise Theatre,” perhaps the most subtle and elusive music-theater work that the group has staged to date.

Kirsten’s dream-like opus is based on commedia dell’arte, whose theatrical format and archetypal characters were developed in 16th-century Italy. Colombine is commonly its lead female character. Here, she hovers between life and death, torn between the fantasy of romance with Harlequin, the prankish seducer, and reality, represented by Pierrot. The Harbinger, a presence more than a character, “serves as a guide as well as a witness to Colombine’s struggle,” Kirsten writes in her program note.

The story is told primarily through mime-like movement. Dialogue is limited to three poems, adapted from the work of Isabella Andreini (1562-1604), a leading actress of commedia dell’arte, recited by Colombine with greater emphasis on rhythm and expression than on the words themselves.

True to the tradition of these itinerant theatrical troupes, the staging (by Mark DeChiazza) is skeletally minimal – basically, metal towers and chairs draped in patterned fabric. The costumes of Colombine and Harlequin are traditional; Pierrot is garbed in a white jumper not unlike the suits of hazardous-material disposal teams (minus the face mask). The Harbinger is not costumed.

Members of eighth blackbird double as actors and music-makers. Pianist Lisa Kaplan plays Colombine. Percussionist Matthew Duvall is Pierrot. Harlequin is portrayed by flutist Tim Munro, shadowed by clarinetist Michael Maccaferri and violinist Yvonne Lam. Cellist Nicholas Photinos is the Harbinger.

Rhythmic breathing and expressive exhalation figure almost as much as instruments and vocalizations in Kirsten’s composition.

Theatrically, the piece is a tour de force for Munro, whose leering stage presence and sinewy movements makes one wonder whether he might have opted for modern dance instead of playing the flute. Kaplan effectively conveys Colombine’s life/death, fantasy/reality state, often in near-stasis as she lies on the floor in a “nest” formed by her costume. Duvall’s Pierrot is a physically and emotionally distant figure, more engaged in playing percussion instruments, perched precariously on a high ladder, than in acting per se.

As eighth blackbird has frequently staged in Schoenberg’s “Pierrot Lunaire,” one wonders whether “Colombine’s Paradise Theatre” is destined to be a companion piece. Pairing the two would be fascinating, if exhausting for the six performers.

Another premiere shared the bill of this program: “passing through,” a piece staged by the Agua Dulce Dance Theatre, a troupe led by dancer-choreographers Alicia Díaz and Matthew Thornton, both on the UR faculty (he is also a martial artist).

The 20-minute piece is billed as a collaborative work, also created by video artists KimSu Theiler and Alexis Raskin, sound designer Oliver Lyons, lighting designer Patrick Kraehenbuehl and composer Andrew Clay McGraw. McGraw, director of UR’s Gamelan Raga Kusuma, an Indonesian-style gamelan orchestra, and members of that ensemble form the pit band for this production.

According to Díaz, “passing through” is the product of a creative process that continued through “the end of tonight’s show.” (And will resume in subsequent performances?) To its credit, it doesn’t play like a committee effort or work in progress.

The story line, if that’s the right term, is “the process of becoming, taking shape and then moving on,” we’re informed in the program note. Nebulous? To be sure.

The piece begins with “inception,” a slow-motion, mirror-image dance by a female duo, which segues into “fire,” a more frenzied set of movements by a male dancer with a video fire backdrop. “Forming” and “passing through,” the most eye-catching sections, are plays of physical movement and striking lighting effects.

with soloists, Richmond Symphony Chorus
Steven Smith conducting
Oct. 19, Richmond CenterStage

Like certain locusts, the Verdi Requiem arrives every seven years or so on Richmond Symphony programs. This year, there’s also the anniversary factor: 2013 is the bicentenary of Verdi’s birth. The Requiem has been treated to a variety of interpretations over the years, but performances have been remarkably consistent in quality.

A concert chorus rarely gets to be more dramatic than in this piece, and there’s no better concert showcase for Italianate operatic voices. This time around, the solo quartet – soprano Kelley Nassief, mezzo-soprano Jennifer Feinstein, tenor Marco Panuccio and bass Kevin Deas – proved to be unusually complementary, with Nassief and Feinstein producing especially fine duet-singing in several of the most emotionally potent sections of the Mass.

Deas, who performs frequently with this orchestra, was a sonorous if rather stoic presence; Panuccio contributed the most Italianate accents, singing with heated intensity even in the tenor’s most quiet passages.

Intense quiet was one of the most effective tones of voice in this choral performance. From the opening “Requiem” through the conclusion of the Mass, the Symphony Chorus created striking effects of shadowed tone and distance in its sotto voce singing. In louder and more turbulent passages, notably the recurrent Dies Irae, the choristers projected energy and passion, and demonstratred gratifying attention to detail in more complex sections.

Erin R. Freeman, who this season is dividing her time between the Richmond Symphony, where she is associate conductor and director of the Symphony Chorus, and a new post as director of the Buffalo Philharmonic Chorus, prepared the Richmonders well for the Verdi Requiem. She also sang with her charges in the weekend performances.

Steven Smith, the orchestra’s music director, showed an interesting sensibility in his first go at a major Italian score in four seasons in Richmond. Under his direction, this Requiem emphasized the lyrical, emotional and spiritual. The drama, in the Dies Irae and elsewhere, was not especially hard-edged.

A temperate Verdi Requiem? Relatively so, and surprisingly effective in its aversion to excess.

with New York Chamber Soloists
Oct. 12, Virginia Commonwealth University

At the beginning of the second half of the VCU Rennolds Concerts performance by pianist Menahem Pressler and the New York Chamber Soloists, the ensemble’s clarinetist, Allen Blustine, turned to the audience:

“Anyone here have perfect pitch?”

Few if any hands went up.

“Good,” he said.

’Nuff said, I’d say, about the intonational (and other) problems that plagued the wind ensemble in Mozart’s Divertimento in B flat major, K. 439b, and Quintet in E flat major, K. 452, for piano and winds during the first half of the program.

The four wind players also joined the pianist in Beethoven’s Quintet in E flat major, Op. 16, for piano and winds to close the program; but like a number of concertgoers, I left before that performance.

Pressler, the longtime pianist of the Beaux Arts Trio, was the star of this outing. He turns 90 later this year. Age has robbed him of some facility – he dropped some notes and muddled some figurations in six bagatelles from Beethoven’s Op. 33 set and of Mozart’s great Rondo in A minor, K. 511; but his tone production remains crystalline, and the musicality developed and deepened over a 70-year career more than compensated for technical flaws in his performances.

Especially so in the Mozart rondo, a work that could be cited as proof of the comment (attributed to Artur Schnabel) that Mozart is too easy for children and too hard for adults. Introducing the rondo, Pressler recalled the great pianist Mieczyslaw Horszowski observing that pianists choosing to play K. 511 in competitions inevitably lost.

Pressler himself delayed adding the piece to his repertory until he was in his 80s. “I have to play this piece,” he told the audience. “If I fail, I fail.”

His performance was a tutorial on how to handle the ambiguities of minor-key Mozart. While playful, as a rondo should be, and as Mozart almost always is in his keyboard music, Pressler also captured the rueful, “if only” tone that pervades this remarkable work.

The Mozart rondo tends to tower over other works with which it’s programmed. In this program, it towered even higher.
