Ives Collective – October 23, 2016

Ives Collective

Roy Malan, violin; Susan Freier, violin; Nancy Ellis, viola; Stephen Harrison, cello; Keisuke Nakagoshi, piano

Joaquin Turni Il Circulo for Piano Trio, Op. 91
Ernst von Dohnányi String Quartet No. 2 in D-flat major, Op. 15
Gabriel Fauré Piano Quartet No. 2 in G minor, Op. 45

Please join the Ives Collective for performances that adventure beyond the familiar. The Fall IC program (one of three the IC will be performing for OFC), features rarely heard works, including Joaquin Turina’s Il Circulo, a work for piano trio that evokes the passing of a single Spanish day. About his Second Piano Quartet Gabriel Fauré recalled: “I remember having translated, almost involuntarily, the far-off memory of a peal of bells…” Lastly, the IC perform “one of the great… post-Brahmsian romantic string quartets”, Dohnanyi’s brilliant Quartet No. 2 from 1906.

Old First Concerts has volunteer opportunities available!

Our concerts rely on the generosity of volunteers to assist with simple tasks like:

Scheduling is flexible — you choose when to work! We especially need helping hands for our Friday and Saturday night performances.
