Welcome to Year II of the RESONATE FESTIVAL with Artist-in-Residence ANTHONY MCGILL, clarinet

PROGRAM 1: MCGILL, SAINT-GEORGES & BEETHOVEN

Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges—violin virtuoso, composer, son of an enslaved mother, colonel in Europe’s first Black regiment, and champion fencer—has finally been rediscovered by the classical music world! In an exciting new guise, the transcribed Clarinet Concerto—replete with both technical flamboyance and lyricism—gets its world premiere performance by Anthony McGill. In the same year Bologne passed from this earth, 1799, Beethoven was deeply immersed in creating his First Symphony, a beautiful amalgam of the classical style and—with unexpected key changes, unusual dynamics, and bold tempos—an audacious step into the new century.

ARTISTS

Eric Jacobsen, conductor

Anthony McGill, clarinet

PROGRAM

BOLOGNE, CHEVALIER DE SAINT-GEORGES– Clarinet Concerto (transcription of Violin Concerto in A Major, Op. 5, No. 2, Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra commission; World Premiere)
BEETHOVEN– Symphony No. 1

PROGRAM 2: DEBUSSY & BEETHOVEN

We dive into Resonate Festival chamber music with Anthony McGill & Co. playing Beethoven’s delightful Op. 11, with our own maestro joining the festivities on cello! Opening the concert is Debussy’s Violin Sonata, the last completed work by a man profoundly affected by war and illness. Still, his swan song captivates— with ferocity, radiant colors, sprinklings of folk music, and, the composer said, “tumultuous joy.” In between, Three Romances by the until-recently-woefully-neglected Clara Schumann—finally out from behind her husband’s shadow—with her last and most popular chamber work. The keyboard part is testimony to her vast talents as a star pianist.
