Birdfoot Festival presents: 桜 SAKURA in Concert

Birdfoot is excited to welcome the unique and versatile cello quintet 桜 SAKURA for its 2018 Spring Artist Residency.

Showcasing the great warmth and scope offered by the sound of five cellos, 桜 SAKURA’s repertoire includes a set of Renaissance a cappella works ranging from the vulgar to the sublime, Debussy’s evocative piano preludes, Rachmaninoff’s Vocalise, and selections from Leonard Bernstein’s enduring West Side Story, and more!  This engaging ensemble, joined by Birdfoot’s Artistic Director Jenna Sherry, will delve deeply into Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony in the latest edition of the popular Birdfoot Backstage series and will close out their residency with a dazzling and eclectic program of works spanning five centuries.

Birdfoot Backstage: 桜 SAKURA

Join the the dazzling 桜 SAKURA and Birdfoot’s Artistic Director Jenna Sherry “backstage” in a conversation about Beethoven’s riveting Fifth Symphony and Anne Wilson’s Lament in Memory of Matthew Shepard.

Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony is the latest work that SAKURA has arranged for five cellos (an epic feat in itself), and one of the most-performed and recognized pieces of music of all time. Beethoven’s “Fifth”  is like a fortress build from a simple rhythmic “lego block”—the famous “da-da-da-dum” opening rhythm.

Anne Wilson’s Lament in Memory of Matthew Shepard, on the other hand, was one of the first pieces that SAKURA ever performed and one of only a few in their repertoire that was originally written for five cellos. This loving and compassionate work paints a picture of the tragic story of the young gay man who was tricked, savagely beaten, and ultimately killed as a result of his sexual orientation.

This edition of “Backstage” is an opportunity to get inside this powerful music alongside the musicians of SAKURA. Join the conversation!
