Meet the Masters: Discovering a Masterpiece
April 6 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Marta Krechkovsky, Jennifer Orchard, Tatjana Mead Chamis, and Bronwyn Banerdt (all colleagues in the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra), became the Clarion Quartet to share their passion for chamber music and their particular interest in exploring Entartete Musik, works that were termed “degenerate” by the Nazis and banned during the years leading up to the Holocaust through the immediate aftermath of the World War II. The Clarion Quartet and pianist Dimitri Papadimitriou are preparing the Piano Quintet by Mieczyslaw Weinberg (written in 1944) for an upcoming performance on the Carnegie Mellon Chamber Series. Mieczysław Weinberg was a composer of Polish-Jewish origin who lived in the Soviet Union and Russia from 1939 and lost most of his family in the Holocaust. As this virtuosic group prepares for their upcoming performance, you are invited to hear excerpts from this masterpiece and learn how professional musicians feel about “discovering” a masterpiece for the first time at the height of their careers!
