Birdfoot Festival Season Finale: Death and the Maiden

Birdfoot’s Finale presents music born of the lover’s sigh, the heroine’s last gasp, and life’s emotional highs and lows. Few works of chamber music are as thrilling as Schubert’s “Death and the Maiden” quartet, named for the composer’s song in which a maiden pleads with Death to pass her by (and whose haunting melody is the centerpiece of the quartet). Surrounding Schubert’s masterpiece are musical gems of equally intimate and acute emotion: Monteverdi’s madrigals open up the fresh pain of heartbreak, Purcell’s heroine Dido (the mythic queen of Carthage) laments her last moments, John Dowland’s “teares” flow in sweet sorrow, and composer-in-residence Patrick Castillo’s Dreamers Often Lie explores the bizarre real-as-life experience of dreams.

Henry Purcell: Chacony

John Dowland: Selections from Lacrimae or Seaven Teares

Patrick Castillo: Dreamers Often Lie

Claudio Monteverdi:

Piagn’e sospira

Lamento della Ninfa

Lamento d’Arianna, “Lasciatemi morire

Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber: Mensa Sonora III

Franz Schubert: String Quartet in D minor, “Death and the Maiden”

Birdfoot Festival: Let There Be Night

Surely you’ve had them: late-night existential conversations, sleepless meditations, monsters under the bed that disappear with the light of dawn. Darkness and night have long been playgrounds for the imagination and metaphors for the unknown and unknowable. For J.S. Bach, music and text come together to re-enact and glorify spiritual mystery, while for contemporary composer Georg Friedrich Haas, mystery is revealed in the hidden spectrums of sound. Dive into the deep end for a program of music that reaches beyond.

Please note:
• The second half of the concert will be performed entirely in the dark.
• At 7 PM, this concert will be preceded by an Introduction to the Music by renowned speaker and presenter Patrick Castillo.

Program:

J.S. Bach arranged W.A. Mozart: Adagio & Fugue in D minor, K. 404

Sean Harold: Nachtlied

J.S. Bach: Cantata 54 —Widerstehe doch der Sünde

Carlo Gesualdo: Feria Quinta from the Tenebrae Responsories for Maundy Thursday, Eram quasi Agnus Innocens

Birdfoot Festival: Nothing But the Truth

Framed by Dvorak’s “American” Quartet, this concert examines the complex subjects of identity, experience, and truth. Inspired by African-American spirituals and songs, Dvorak’s quartet is an outsider’s portrait of America’s energy and potential approaching the turn of the century. Juxtaposed with this, spirituals, arranged by New Orleans’ own Moses Hogan, and the musical voice of Florence Price, reveal a complex counterpoint to Dvorak’s optimism. Works by Ruth Crawford Seeger, Caroline Shaw, and Johann Christoph Bach (J.S. Bach’s uncle), will also be featured, while the cherished concept of justice itself is examined in Garth Knox’s Nothing but the Truth, a musical courtroom drama without a predetermined outcome…will the musicians be found guilty or innocent?

Ruth Crawford Seeger: Andante

Johann Christoph Bach: “Ach dass ich Wassers gnug hätte”

Garth Knox: Nothing but the Truth

Antonín Dvořák: String Quartet No. 12, “American”

Caroline Shaw: By and By

Florence Price: Songs to the Dark Virgin

Moses Hogan, arranger: Spirituals
