Musicians of Ma’alwyk with Nacre and Creative License | Bach, Schumann, Mozart, and more

Sunday, February 19th 2017 at 3:00 pm

The Musicians of Ma’alwyck has put together a program celebrating the music, movement, and poetry of that grand, elusive feeling of love. Love-music somber and love-music sweet are the heart of a Valentine’s Day concert “Suite of Love,” which weaves poetry and dance into a garland of musical selections written by Bach, Robert Schumann, W.A. Mozart, and others.

Agustín BarriosLa Catedral for solo guitar; songs by Robert Schumann and Henry Purcell will be offered alongside the Suite Espagnole for violin and guitar by Joaquin Nin-Culmell – whose sister, Anaïs Nin, penned fervent erotica – and Blue Third Pieces by Libby Larsen.  Musicians of Ma’alwyck members Ann-Marie Barker Schwartz, violin; Sten Isachsen, guitar; and Norman Thibodeau, flute; are joined by soprano Tess McCarthy.

Choreographer Beth Fecteau is creating dance pieces for her company, Nacre, to both the words and music; the text, much of it inspired by the writings of the composers themselves, is being written by the eternally love stricken wordsmith Byron Nilsson; the words will be realized by actors from Creative License.

Note: This performance is the rescheduled from the original date of February 12th 2017.
