We dive into Resonate Festival chamber music with Anthony McGill & Co. playing Beethoven’s delightful Op. 11, with our own maestro joining the festivities on cello! Opening the concert is Debussy’s Violin Sonata, the last completed work by a man profoundly affected by war and illness. Still, his swan song captivates— with ferocity, radiant colors, sprinklings of folk music, and, the composer said, “tumultuous joy.” In between, Three Romances by the until-recently-woefully-neglected Clara Schumann—finally out from behind her husband’s shadow—with her last and most popular chamber work. The keyboard part is testimony to her vast talents as a star pianist.
