Early Debussy will be on the program as Marnie Breckenridge sings and Keisuke Nakagoshi plays four versions of “Clare de Lune” as well as Trois Chansons de Bilitis. Susan Waterfall and Daniel Lockert will perform Six Èpigraphes Antiques. After a piano visit to L’Isle Joyeuse and the Children’s Corner, Mindy Rosenfeld, Elizabeth Prior, and Anna Maria Mendieta will perform the Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp.
This year, Susan Waterfall’s composer series will feature the innovative and influential Claude Debussy. Immerse yourself in his world and his music, and understand how his music evolved over his lifetime, through a multi-media lecture and two narrated chamber recitals featuring exciting guest artists.
“Waterfall’s productions always present exciting, absorbing playing of great music, but are also rare, distinctive examples of what can be called music education, though they’re more conversational, truly a sharing of perspective, interest, anecdote. There’s a sense of immediacy to her delivery, weaving in and out of the playing, an intimately conceived present awareness of this heritage. It’s something unique that needs to be experienced.” Ken Bullock, Berkeley Daily Planet
