Saying Large Things with Small Voices

Saturday, October 16, 2010

First Presbyterian Church
Cedar Rapids

Jan Boland (flute)
John Dowdall (guitar)
David Miller (viola)

Relevant and beautiful things can be found by looking back in time. Chamber music can say large things with small voices. The heritage of chamber music is important, so we travel far and wide to dusty libraries and private collections to find musical gems unavailable in modern edition. Music of Mauro Giuliani, Francesco Molino and Anton Diabelli is performed on period instruments (circa 1830) – a wooden flute and gut-strung viola and guitar. This masterfully crafted and enchanting music recalls Vienna’s golden age. (Photo by Barb Gordon)

Sponsor: This concert is sponsored by the Giacoletto Foundation. Artist sponsorship comes from Victor and Janice Naxera

Ready for an all-Iowa adventure? Then step into the philosophical milieu of small-town Iowa in the 1950’s. Perhaps Gilead for flute, guitar and string quartet by Marion-born, prize-winning composer Harvey Sollberger receives its world premiere at the hands of six masterful Iowa musicians. Sollberger’s Perhaps Gilead is inspired by the novels (Home and Gilead) of Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Marilynne Robinson (Iowa Writer’s Workshop), which spring from her fictional Iowa town of Gilead. Relive the history and spirit of our great state through great new works of Iowa art! (Photo by Forrest Tomes)
