What could be better than an extended weekend spent with 12 cellists playing music of Bach/Gabrielli/Telemann, to cutting-edge contemporary unaccompanied, to Julius Eastman’s stunning Holy Presence of Joan d’Arc (set to Dreyer’s 1928 film with ten celli)? The plan is for performances at the New Skete Monastery and Salem Art Works, followed by a final performance on Sunday, June 11th at 4:00pm, when Music from Salem’s Cello Seminar will perform a concert at Hubbard Hall in Cambridge NY. The Cello Seminar is an intensive weeklong seminar for young professionally bound cellists, led by Music from Salem Cello Seminar interim director Scott Kluksdahl as well as cellists David Russell and Helga Winold.
Welcome in the summer with this end-of-the-week cello-bration concert!

Works by Glazunov, Glass, Yun, Hindemith, Aperghis
On Sun April 9th at 4 pm, a beautiful and fascinating afternoon of music for viola and piano and solo piano Hubbard Hall will feature the romantic Fantasy Sonata by Paul Hindemith, very much influenced by Brahms.
The performers are Music from Salem directors, Lila Brown and Judith Gordon. Two unusual pieces on this program are Phillip Glass‘s mesmerizing 15 minute work, Mad Rush, for solo piano, and Isang Yun‘s Duo for viola and piano. Though Yun, who tried to make cultural contact with North Korea, was sentenced to death by the South Korean Secret Service, and was given asylum in Germany, his virtuosic music is not discordant, but gentle and delicate, using infinitely varied permutations reflecting the natural world. The program opens with the melting melodies of Glazunov‘s Elegy for viola and piano. Besides a busy performance schedule, Gordon is a professor of piano at Smith College, and Brown teaches at the Boston Conservatory and the North Carolina School of the Arts
