Concerts in the Village: Master, Mentor, and a Contemporary

WAMozart-JCBach-JMHaydn2:00 pm • Sunday, September 17th 2017
Van Buren Hall • Kinderhook, NY

Despite the warmth and humidity in the air, the autumn colors appearing in the trees and the garden are telltale signs that fall is around the corner. With that comes various “season openers” through out the region. This Sunday afternoon, Concerts in the Village (CITV)  opens its 2017-18 season with a performance that features the Broad Street Orchestra and clarinetist Paul Green with a program entitled “Master, Mentor, and a Contemporary.”

Despite his extraordinary precociousness, W.A. Mozart was not without the important influence of others, most notably J.S. Bach’s youngest son, Johann Christian. The music performed in this CITV program makes clear how remarkably strong J.C. Bach’s influence was on Mozart’s stylistic development, including compositional features that remained throughout Mozart’s brief, but productive life. The Mozart and Haydn families were fairly close and Michael Haydn, younger brother of the more famous Joseph, has been described as a “musical kinsman.”
David Smith leads the Broad Street Orchestra with a program that highlights the connections between the master, the mentor, and the contemporary:

  • J.C. Bach — Overture to Artaserse
  • Michael Haydn — Incidental Music to Voltaire’s Zaïre
  • W.A. Mozart — Clarinet Concerto in A Major, K. 6222
  • J.C. Bach — Sinfonia in D Major
  • W.A. Mozart — Symphony No. 33 in B-Flat Major, K.319

The Concerts in the Village performance takes place in the long-neglected, but acoustically wonderful performing space on the second level of the Kinderhook Village Hall, which has recently been restored and renamed Van Buren Hall.
