Heifetz on Tour: Portland Chamber Music Festival (ME)

October 11, 2023 @ 8:00 pm

Introducing an exciting new collaboration! PCMF Artistic Director Melissa Reardon joins Heifetz on Tour, which pairs professional musicians with promising young alumni of the Heifetz International Music Institute, connecting “rising stars” of the chamber music world with diverse communities around the country.

​In “Songs, Dances, and Romances,” violin, viola and cello each take a turn in the spotlight, then all join together for a powerful Piano Quartet by Brahms. Clara Schumann’s Three Romances, lush and poignant, are followed by a set of Spanish folk songs that all deal with the theme of love and courtship. A passionately expressive movement of a Robert Schumann violin sonata makes for an intriguing pairing with a virtuosic Rondo by Sicong Ma, known in China as “King of the Violinists.” Clara Schumann herself played the piano part in the 1861 premiere of Brahms’s captivating G minor Piano Quartet, with its famously rip-roaring “Gypsy rondo” finale.
