Beethoven to Bartók with Saratoga Chamber Players Jill Levy & Margaret Kampmeier

Margaret Kampmeier & Jill Levy3:00 pm • Sunday, January 28th 2018
Filene Hall, Skidmore College • Saratoga Springs

While it’s a quiet weekend in the neighborhood this weekend, we’ll point you to the Saratoga Chamber Players first concert of 2018 that takes place on the Skidmore campus this Sunday afternoon.

Exemplifying the intimacy we cherish in chamber music, the performance of sonatas featuring the violin takes place in Filene Recital Hall. The program presents violinist Jill Levy and pianist Margaret Kampmeier and is to include:

  • Ludwig van Beethoven — Sonata No. 8 in G Major, Op. 30, No.3
  • Olivier Messiaen— Thème et variations
  • Béla Bartók — Violin Rhapsody No. 1, Sz. 87
  • Sir Edward Elgar — Violin Sonata in E minor, Op. 82

Many of us are familiar with Jill Levy as the concertmaster of the Albany Symphony Orchestra, but she is the long-standing Artistic Director of the Saratoga Chamber Players and also a long-time member of the Sherman Chamber Ensemble based in Connecticut. Pianist Margaret Kampmeier has a varied career as soloist, collaborative artist and educator and has appeared many times with the Saratoga Chamber Players as well as the St. Petersburg Chamber Philharmonic, New York Philharmonic Ensembles, Kronos Quartet, Sherman Chamber Ensemble, Richardson Chamber Players, and Peter Schickele. Sunday’s concert promises to deliver some wonderful playing as Levy and Kampmeier bring that intimate interplay that comes from working together over the course of a least a decade.

Tickets range from $15 to $20, can be purchased at the door, online, or by calling (518) 584-1427. Here’s a little something to warm you up in the anticipation of Sunday’s concert.

Happy musicking this weekend!
