- Have you ever wondered why classical music, written by long-dead composers from a bygone age, is relevant to you today?
- Have you ever attended a “new music” concert, only to wish you had stuck with the long-dead composers, instead?
- Have you asked yourself whether there is still a place for melody and beauty in contemporary classical music?
- Have you ever wanted to know more about the process of musical composition, only to be frustrated that you couldn’t pick up a phone and ask Beethoven or Brahms how they did what they did?
Well, have we got the concert for you!
Join us on a wonderful journey into the world of a living composer, Mark Carlson, whose music has been described as lyrical, emotionally powerful, and stylistically unique. We will present a variety of works from Mark’s long and illustrious career, including chamber works, a song cycle, and even an aria from his new opera, The Scarlet Letter – all performed by some of the best musicians to be found anywhere. Mark will speak about these pieces, about the process of composing them, and will also answer your questions.
