Chamber music feast
Five varied ensembles from SAMC Music at Trinity Western University serve up an evening of chamber music, ranging from the Renaissance to Danzi and Shostakovich, and from Bach to Bon Jovi and the blues. TWU’s piano trio, woodwind quintet, saxophone quartet, guitar quartet, and Renaissance Singers will perform November 28 at 7:30pm.
The guitar quartet will kick off the evening with a varied set, including Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody. The piano trio (piano, violin, and cello) follows with a portion of Shostakovich’s dramatic Piano Trio No. 2 in E minor, Op. 67, written in 1944 in the shadow of the Holocaust.
After the woodwind quintet delivers Danzi’s G minor quintet from 1821, watch them switch things up—literally—as they pick up saxophones for some fun with a Bach fugue, and an arrangement of the St. Louis Blues.
Then it’s back in time as the 8-member Renaissance Singers give us a taste of the smooth choral polyphony of Tomas de Luis de Victoria with his motet and mass on the Christmas text O Magnum Mysterium.
