A Song by Mahler – Digital Premiere!

We are proud to have joined a coalition of outstanding chamber music producers from across the country to commission a brand-new chamber opera entitled A Song by Mahler. This 75-minute piece follows an opera singer who is diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Over the course of the work, she and her husband, also a musician, grapple with the increasing severity of her symptoms. With incredibly moving music and words composed by Marc Neikrug, and a unique set by renowned creative Doug Fitch, this is a must-see presentation by LCCMF. Singers Jennifer Johnson Cano and Kelly Markgraf are joined by clarinetist David Shifrin and the FLUX Quartet.

Filmed at Elley-Long Music Center. Video access to this concert will be available until October 31.

ELEGY – Digital Premiere!

Elegy begins with Anglo-African composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor's clarinet quintet. This work, historically under-performed despite praise it has received over decades, draws heavy influence from many romantic composers, especially Antonin Dvořák. The evening finishes with Smetana's famously emotional piano trio, written as an elegy to his eldest daughter, who tragically died at the age of four.

Filmed at Elley-Long Music Center. Video access to this concert will be available until October 31.

LOVE SONGS – Digital premiere!

Composers Robert and Clara Schumann were married in 1840. During the blissful second year of their marriage, the two collaborated on a set of art songs based on the poetry of Frederick Rückert. Hear these beautiful love songs, as well as Robert's famous piano quartet op. 47, an iconic work that many have lauded as the foundation of piano quartet writing going forward.
