What is up Leavenworth? The International Chamber Music Festival

Posted By CotoBlogzz

Leavenworth, WA – The Icicle Creek International Chamber Music Festival today  reaches a new pinnacle as  this Friday and Saturday the beloved faculty-artists perform two extraordinary concerts that range from Mozart through Brahms to Bartok, with excursions to lesser-known masterpieces by Schubert, Arensky and Taneyev.


Icicle Creek also introduces  a new festival artist, Ray Furuta, in two pieces featuring the flute. On Friday, he will play what is arguably Schubert’s most overtly virtuoso piece with Christina Dahl at the piano and on Saturday will join Anthony Elliott, Marie Wang and Tony Devoye in the Mozart Flute Quartet.

Those of you who are dedicated Festival followers will recall an amazing performance last summer of the Taneyev Piano Quintet, an unjustifiably neglected Russian masterpiece full of the kinds of melodic and technical writing found in Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff.

As a follow up to last summer amazing performance of the Taneyev Piano Quintet, an unjustifiably neglected Russian masterpiece full of the kinds of melodic and technical writing found in Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff another work by Taneyev is featured this Saturday -  a string quintet full of the melancholy and passion associated with the Russian school.

In addition, the Volta Piano Trio will play the Arensky Trio, a major Russian blockbuster on Friday, and the Avalon Quartet will play the Bartok Fifth Quartet, a piece of unparalleled creativity and technical difficulty.

Institute’s remarkable Young Artists take center stage on Sunday in what promises to be a thrilling concert featuring chamber works of Beethoven, Drovak, Zemlinsky and Faure. Chamber music of this nature offers the audience the experience of being absolutely inside the process of making music, and the concert space of Canyon Wren enables everyone in attendance to, in effect, participate in the performance itself. Join us for these rare summer weekends of world-class music making in a setting of unrivaled beauty and
