Join us for an evening of art-inspired classical music!
Chamber Music on the Mountain (CMM), the newest addition to the Creative Spaces NWA program at Mount Sequoyah Center, is a year-round concert series bringing high caliber musicians to collaborate with local musicians, artists and organizations. Led by the Artistic Director and pianist Tomoko Kashiwagi, CMM will partner with non-classical music organizations or artists for every concert, instigating a cross-fertilization of various art forms.
The CMM Summer Festival 2021, July 19th-31st, will present five concerts at Mount Sequoyah, as well as an outreach concert at the Fayetteville Public Library, the Momentary and the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.
American Canvas, Jennifer Higdon
Pulitzer Prize winner composer, Jennifer Higdon (b. 1962), composed her American Canvas for flute, cello and piano inspired by three American painters: Georgia O’Keeffe, Jackson Pollock, and Andrew Wyeth. Higdon effectively captures the styles of each artist into sound using a familiar tonal language with a modern twist.
Lyric Quartet, William Grant Still
William Grant Still (1895-1978), a leading figure in the Harlem Renaissance and known as the “Dean of Afro-American composers,” was raised in Little Rock, Arkansas. Still’s Lyric Quartet, subtitled “Musical Portraits of Three Friends”, is an intimate and personal work that embraces the audience with warmth, tenderness and joy.
Piano Quintet in E-flat Major, Op. 44, Robert Schumann
Piano Quintet in E-flat Major, Op. 44, by Robert Schumann (1810-1856), was dedicated to his beloved wife Clara, a virtuoso pianist. Composed in one of Schumann’s most productive years, 1842, the Quintet was composed in just five days. The piece, described by Schumann as “very spirited and full of life,” has become a favorite chamber music for performers and listeners alike. Schumann’s piano quintet inspired many later composers such as Brahms and Faure to also write piano quintets.
