Classical Evolution with harpsichordist Jory Vinikour promises to be quite the concert with a world premiere of composer Max Wolpert’s piece, “Baroque in Mirror.”
Classical Evolution explores the evolution of classical music in this century, and the inspiration from previous eras and multiple cultures, with the use of an instrument choice from the Renaissance and Baroque periods, the harpsichord. World-renowned harpsichordist, Jory Vinikour, joins Pro Music Colorado Chamber Orchestra on this musical journey.
The concert opens with a World Premiere of composer Max Wolpert’s “Baroque in Mirror.”
“Max Wolpert’s new composition is a wonderful homage to the Baroque Era in general and the folk fiddlers of the time,” says Cynthia Katsarelis, Music Director and Conductor of Pro Music Colorado Chamber Orchestra. “The work starts with a well-crafted, Baroque-sounding fugue that bursts out into an exhilarating fiddle tune! The outer movements honor Scottish and Welsh fiddlers while the middle movement comes closer to home. It is based on the Jewish fiddle music of 18th century by Abraham Caceres.”
Wolpert says, “It was written in memory and mourning for the victims of the Tree of Life Synagogue massacre, October 27, 2018. A portion of the music is labelled ‘Kaddish’ and quotes from that prayer. Music of our time, knitting together music of the past that speaks to the present.”
Also on the concert are J.S. Bach’s Harpsichord Concerto in D minor and Haydn’s Symphony No. 22, the Philosopher.
