SOUVENIR DE FLORENCE—AN ITALIAN HOLIDAY CELEBRATION
Great Barrington, 6 p.m.
Brought to you by Close Encounters With Music -- www.cewm.org for tickets Performance takes place at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center 14 Castle St, Great Barrington, MA An Italian fixation runs deep in the collective artistic psyche. It was de rigueur for 19th century painters, musicians and literary types—Byron, Tchaikovsky, Mendelssohn—to make the Grand Tour to Rome and Florence, imbibe the classicism, passion, bel canto, and expressivity that are hallmarks of Italian art, and bring them home to their studios where memories of the sunshine sustained them in chilly northern Europe. The centerpiece of the program is Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir de Florence, written as he recovered from a disastrous marriage and developed an infatuation with the city that spawned the Renaissance. Florence worked its magic on Tchaikovsky, and the result is one of the most delightful and charming pieces in the repertory, for string sextet. This Italian showcase includes Chrysanthemums, the only chamber music Puccini ever wrote; works by the Venetian Vivaldi; Hugo Wolf’s Italian Serenade, and a Verdi string quartet. Bellissimo! The Amernet String Quartet: Misha Vitenson, violin; Franz Felkl, violin; Michael Klotz, viola; Jason Calloway, cello; with Xiao-Dong Wang, viola; Yehuda Hanani, cello
