Announcing the new Schubert Club Composer-in-Residence: deVon Russell Gray plus two additional financial awards for Minnesota composers

By | News | No Comments

Saint Paul, MN (May 29, 2019) — Schubert Club is pleased to announce the appointment of deVon Russell Gray as its new Composer-in-Residence beginning September 1, 2019. Gray will serve a two-year term in this position for the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 seasons.
 
The role of the Composer-in-Residence is to create music, to participate in Schubert Club education and community programs, to advise on artistic projects and to be an advocate on behalf of Schubert Club. The position was created with flexibility to allow the composer to shape their residency activities around their individual strengths and interests.

Schubert Club Artistic & Executive Director Barry Kempton said of Gray’s appointment: “The committee’s decision was unanimous.  We were certainly impressed by the composition samples that deVon submitted with his application, but we were also won over by his sense of who he is as a musician and where he hopes his musical journey will take him.  He is a musician with a broad range of interests and influences and a keen desire to share his knowledge and musical interests with fellow music enthusiasts, young and adult.”Gray stated: “My work has always been about the exploration of intense personal inner spaces as well as the communal imbibing of the resultant magic. Through this residency with Schubert Club I have the opportunity to further grow into my path as a creator and composer. I look forward to working with Schubert Club in both their educational and programming work. Schubert Club’s recent inclination to address contemporary concerns in classical music presentation and programming is laudable and relevant. I am glad to be part of this new direction.”In addition, Schubert Club will award financial support to the creation of new works by two other Minnesota-based composers, Asako Hirabayashi and Aleksandr Brusentsev.  Both composers were identified during the Composer-in-Residence search process.
 
About the Selection Process
Minnesota composers were invited to submit an application in early 2019. There were 18 candidates in total. The search committee comprised Artistic & Executive Director Barry Kempton and Education & Museum Director Kate Cooper,  together with composers Reinaldo Moya and Vivian Fung.
 
About deVon Russell Gray
deVon Russell Gray’s music reflects equal reverence for Eric B. & Rakim, Mingus, and Bartók. Factor in true love for contemporary poetry, Afrofuturism, astrophysics, Sci Fi animated series, cooking, libations, and other Renaissance activities, and a picture of Gray begins to come into view. Gray envisions a world in which socially constructed divisions fade into oblivion and where concert offerings seamlessly program twentieth century modernists alongside spiritual jazz and free improvisation, adjacent to electronic music and progressive hip hop producers.
 
Gray began writing original music and compositions at age eight. Drawing on his upper Midwestern upbringing and 1980s hip hop, dVRG developed a deep and profound connection to his community. Today, he is a proud part of the Twin Cities’ rich, diverse, and vibrant arts culture, whether collaborating on theater projects, art shows, radio broadcasts or mentoring younger composers and performers. May of 2018 saw the ninth annual awarding of the HEIRUSPECS Scholarship; a fund began by deVon and his bandmates at their alma mater, St. Paul Central High School which benefits graduating students who demonstrate ties to the arts. He also created a work entitled All Kinds of Blues, Right?!, commissioned and performed by the Central High School Jazz Band, dedicated to the greater Central High community and to the memory of Philando Castile.
 
Gray’s achievements in composition include a McKnight Fellowship, participation in the Gabriela Lena Frank Creative Academy for Musicians, guest lecturing at St. Olaf College, and most recently Gray was awarded one of the inaugural Jerome Hill Artist Fellowships. 
 
About Asako Hirabayashi
Harpsichordist and composer, Asako Hirabayashi’s first recording on Albany Label, whose program is entirely composed and played by herself, was selected as one of the 5 best classical CDs of the year 2010 by Minneapolis Star Tribune and was well-reviewed internationally. Hirabayashi has won numerous grants and awards including the 2009 -10 McKnight Fellowship for Performing Musicians and 2 Minnesota State Arts Board’s Artist Initiative grants as a soloist. As a composer, she has won 2016 McKnight Fellowship for Composers, several first prizes in competitions such as Alienor International Harpsichord Composition Competition (won the 6th, 7th and 8th consecutively) and NHK International Song Writing Competition in Japan and wasawarded 2012 Jerome Fund for New Music by American Composers Forum to write an opera. She has appeared as a featured guest soloist in international festivals and concert series worldwide since her New York debut recital at Carnegie Hall. She holds a Doctoral degree from the Juilliard School.
 
About Aleksandr Brusentsev
 Aleksandr Brusentsev tells abstract stories with sound. His music has been performed internationally and has been lauded by artists and audiences alike. Highlights include premieres by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the CHROMA Ensemble, the Royal Academy of Music Manson Ensemble, and Alexandra Wood and Huw Watkins. Currently, Brusentsev is working on a flugelhorn concerto for soloist Imogen Hancock, conductor Toby Thatcher, and Ensemble Eroica. Additionally, he is collaborating with filmmaker Sky Ainsbury to create a series of videos that will engage with the human side of global affairs and feature a member of Brusentsev’s solo works. Brusentsev also received “high recommendation” in both the Alan Bush and Eric Coates composition prizes at the Royal Academy of Music, as well as an award from the Jerome Fund for New Music. Brusentsev is an alumnus of the London Philharmonic Orchestra’s Young Composer program, and associate in the London Symphony Orchestra Soundhub scheme, and a member of the American Composer’s Forum.

Grammy Award-winning Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov – winner of Gramophone’s 2016 Artist of the Year award – has made a spectacular ascent in the classical music world as a solo artist, champion of the concerto repertoire, chamber and vocal collaborator, and composer. Combining consummate technique with rare sensitivity and depth, his performances are a perpetual source of awe. Trifonov recently added a first Grammy Award to his already considerable string of honors, winning Best Instrumental Solo Album of 2018 with Transcendental, a double album of Liszt’s works that marks his third title as an exclusive Deutsche Grammophon artist. As The Times of London notes, he is “without question the most astounding pianist of our age.” Born in Nizhny Novgorod in 1991, Trifonov began his musical training at the age of five, and went on to attend Moscow’s Gnessin School of Music as a student of Tatiana Zelikman, before pursuing his piano studies with Sergei Babayan at the Cleveland Institute of Music. He has also studied composition, and continues to write for piano, chamber ensemble, and orchestra. When he premiered his own Piano Concerto in 2013, the Cleveland Plain Dealer marveled: “Even having seen it, one cannot quite believe it. Such is the artistry of pianist-composer Daniil Trifonov.”

Formed in 2013, the Montrose Trio is a collaboration stemming from a long and fruitful relationship between pianist Jon Kimura Parker and the now disbanded Tokyo String Quartet. Mr. Parker was the quartet’s final guest pianist, and a backstage conversation between Parker, first violinist Martin Beaver and cellist Clive Greensmith led to the Montrose Trio’s creation.Named after Chateau Montrose, a storied Bordeaux wine long favored after concerts, with a nod to the Montrose Arts District of Houston and the street in Winnipeg where Mr. Beaver was raised, the Montrose Trio has quickly established a reputation for performances of the highest distinction. In 2015 the Washington Post raved about their “absolutely top-notch music making, as fine as one could ever expect to hear…they are poised to become one of the top piano trios in the world.” Their program features Dvorak’s Trio in E Minor “Dunky” and Schubert’s Trio in E Flat.

2018-2019 INTERNATIONAL ARTIST SERIES

Igor Levit, piano

Tuesday, October 30, 2018, 7:30pm
Ordway Music Theater

Winner of Gramophone’s “Recording of the Year 2016” award and most recently named the 2018 recipient of the prestigious Gilmore Artist Award, a $300,000 international piano prize conferred every four years, Igor Levit has now progressed from rising star to “one of the essential artists of his generation” (The New York Times). Born in Nizhni Nowgorod in 1987, Levit moved with his family to Germany at the age of eight where he currently resides. As the youngest participant in the 2005 Arthur Rubinstein Competition in Tel Aviv, Igor Levit won the Silver Prize, as well as the Prize for Best Performer of Chamber Music, the Audience Favorite Prize, and the Prize for Best Performer of Contemporary Music. After making his U.S. debut in 2015 and his International Artist Series debut in 2016, the Schubert Club enthusiastically welcomes this phenomenal young artist back, this time to the larger Ordway Music Theater, for a predominantly Germanic recital program featuring the music of Bach, Busoni, Schumann, Wagner and Liszt.

Samuel Hasselhorn, baritone
& Renate Rohlfing, piano

Thursday, November 29, 2018, 7:30pm
& Saturday, December 1, 2018, 10:30am
Ordway Concert Hall

Young German baritone Samuel Hasselhorn won first prize in the 2017 Das Lied International Song Competition in Heidelberg, Germany and in doing so established himself as an outstanding interpreter of art song in the tradition of Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau and Thomas Quasthoff.  Recognized for his charismatic stage presence and stunning vocal ability, his performances have been praised for offering “moments of emotion and pure musicality that will not soon be forgotten” (Crescendo Magazine).  Having recently made his U.S. debut and still a relative newcomer to American concert halls, the Schubert Club is pleased to be among the first U.S. presenters to welcome this fast rising vocal talent. For his Twin Cities debut performance in the Ordway Concert Hall, Hasselhorn will be joined by the pianist he collaborates with regularly, Renate Rohlfing.


Nicola Benedetti, violin
& Alexei Grynyuk, piano

Friday, January 18, 2019, 7:30pm
& Sunday, January 20, 2019, 3:00pm
Ordway Concert Hall

The Schubert Club is honored to announce Scottish violinist Nicola Benedetti as its first Featured Artist, giving us an opportunity to develop a deeper relationship with an artist or ensemble over the course of a season.  Nicola’s residency includes a recital on the International Artist Series.  She is one of the most sought-after violinists of her generation and performs on the Gariel Stradivarius (1717).  Her ability to captivate audiences with her innate musicianship and dynamic presence, coupled with her wide appeal as a high-profile advocate for classical music, has made her one of the most influential classical artists of today. Born in Scotland of Italian heritage, Nicola began violin lessons at the age of five. She has since gone on to collect many awards and titles including “Best Female Artist” at both the 2012 and 2013 Classical BRIT Awards and the Queen’s Medal for Music in 2017, the youngest ever recipient. In addition to her busy orchestra and recital schedule, Benedetti is fiercely committed to music education and has her own education initiative called “The Benedetti Sessions” that give young string players the opportunity to rehearse, undertake and observe masterclasses culminating in a performance alongside Nicola. For her International Artist Series debut in the Ordway Concert Hall, she will give the U.S. premiere of a new work for solo violin written for her by Wynton Marsalis and will be joined for the rest of the program by her regular duo partner, pianist Alexei Grynyuk.

Joyce DiDonato, mezzo soprano
& Craig Terry, piano with jazz trio

Monday, February 25, 2019, 7:30pm
Ordway Music Theatre

“Perhaps the most potent female singer of her generation” (the New Yorker), multi GRAMMY Award winner Joyce DiDonato returns to the Schubert Club’s International Artist Series to perform a song recital in the Ordway Music Theater. With a voice that is “nothing less than 24-carat gold” as proclaimed by The Times, she is among the world’s most entrancing performers. Born in Kansas, Joyce has soared to the top of the industry both as a performer and a fierce advocate for the arts, gaining international prominence in operas by Handel and Mozart, as well as through her wide-ranging, acclaimed discography. Joyce’s program for this concert will feature music from her upcoming recording, SONGPLAY. In her own words, “this is a project of experimentation and play, aimed at giving a joyful (playful!) experience to the listener.” We expect this concert to sell out quickly and encourage you to get your tickets early!

Gautier Capuçon, cello
& Yuja Wang, piano

Wednesday, April 3, 2019, 10:30am
& Thursday, April 4, 2019, 7:30pm
Ordway Concert Hall

The musical duo partnership of Gautier Capuçon and Yuja Wang is one to anticipate with real excitement.  Gautier Capuçon is a true 21st century ambassador for the cello. Born in Chambéry, France in 1981, he performs each season with many of the world’s foremost conductors and instrumentalists, and is also founder and leader of the Classe d’Excellence de Violoncelle at the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris – based in the stunning new Auditorium designed by Frank Gehry. Gautier is acclaimed internationally for his deeply expressive musicianship and exuberant virtuosity, as well as for the glorious sonority of his 1701 Matteo Goffriller cello. Joining him for this pair of recitals is the charismatic pianist Yuja Wang, the 2017 Musical America Artist of the Year. After she made her Schubert Club International Artist Series debut in 2011, the Star Tribune stated “Wang… is no mere ‘virtuoso’ — a word cheapened by overuse. Hers is demonic, more-than-human pianism, of the sort that gets you thinking about Faustian bargains.” Yuja’s way of making music connects with a strikingly broad demographic. It appeals to everyone, from classical music newcomers to devoted pianophiles, and has attracted an exceptionally youthful following. Her love for fashion, recognized by her induction into Giorgio Armani’s Sì Women’s Circle, has also contributed to the popular appeal of an artist who is armed with the ability to challenge the status quo and to welcome fresh converts to the concert hall. For their Ordway Concert Hall performances, this exceptional duo will present two different programs on April 3 and April 4, and we encourage you to attend both!

2018-2019 MUSIC IN THE PARK SERIES

Miró Quartet

Sunday, September 23, 2018, 4pm

The 2018-2019 Music in the Park Series will open with the return of Miró Quartet. Hailed by The New York Times as possessing “explosive vigor and technical finesse”, the dynamic Miró Quartet, one of America’s highest-profile chamber groups, enjoys its place at the top of the international chamber music scene. Founded in 1995 at the Oberlin Conservatory, the quartet met with immediate success winning first prize at the 50th annual Coleman Chamber Music Competition in April 1996, and taking both the first and grand prizes at the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition two months later. In 2005, the Quartet received the Cleveland Quartet Award and was the first ensemble ever to be awarded the coveted Avery Fisher Career Grant.  The quartet’s program comprises quartets by Schumann and Mendelssohn and, honoring their fierce devotion to contemporary music, Kevin Puts’ third string quartet entitled “Credo”. The Miró Quartet is named for the surrealist Spanish artist Joan Miró.

Trio con Brio, Copenhagen

Sunday, October 14, 2018, 4pm

Making a welcome return to Music in the Park Series is the piano trio, Trio con Brio Copenhagen, hailed for their “unique sound and unity of interpretation” (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung). Founded in Vienna in 1999 with the concept of pairs coming together, the two Korean Hong sisters and Jens Elvekjaer (who is married to Soo-Kyung Hong) have been exploring the piano trio repertoire with freshness and curiosity as well as with respect and reflection. Their Mendelssohn CD was chosen by Britain’s Classic FM as its Chamber Disc of 2011. Their program features piano trios by Beethoven, Brahms, and the Piano Trio in G minor by Czech composer Bedrich Smetana written in response to the death of his daughter. Soo-Jin plays a violin built by Andrea Guarneri from the 17th century and Soo-Kyung plays a Grancino cello. Jens is Denmark’s first Steinway artist.

Alexander Fiterstein and Friends

Alexander Fiterstein, clarinet
Elena Urioste, violin
Nicholas Canellakis, cello
Michael Brown, piano

Sunday, November 18, 2018, 4pm

Clarinetist Alexander Fiterstein, Twin Cities-based until recently, is considered one of today’s most exceptional performers of the instrument. He won first prize at the Carl Nielsen International Clarinet Competition and received the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant. As a Juilliard graduate, he won first prize at the Young Concert Artists International Auditions and received awards from the America-Israel Cultural Foundation.  Alex has invited his friends Elena Urioste (violin), Nicholas Canellakis (cello), and Michael Brown (piano) to join him for this program of Mieczysław Weinberg’s Clarinet Sonata and Olivier Messiaen’s much loved Quartet for the End of Time.  Urioste, Canellakis, and Brown have established themselves as three of the most sought-after young virtuosos on the classical music scene today. Each are winners, like Fiterstein, of an Avery Fisher Career Grant.  Among the various other prizes and recognition they have individually won are inclusion in the BBC New Generation Artist Scheme, Sphinx and Concert Artists Guild competitions, and Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center auditions.  They have performed in many of the most prestigious venues across the United States and Europe.

Ensemble Caprice

Sunday, February 10, 2019, 4pm

Highly regarded in early music circles, Ensemble Caprice is renowned for its innovative and expertly informed interpretations of baroque music. The Montreal-based ensemble has received national and international acclaim for its performances under the artistic direction of recorder and baroque flute virtuoso Matthias Maute (who recently added the role of Artistic Director for the Bach Society of Minnesota to his musical activities).  Ensemble Caprice, whose members play recorder, cello, guitar and percussion returns to the Music in the Park Series with a program titled ‘iLove baroque”.  Their program weaves together eight short stories featuring music of two centuries from five countries.  Music by Bach, Falconiero, Schmelzer, Purcell, and Vivaldi (among others) highlights the drama, tenderness, joy, humor, and melancholy of being in love.  A perfect way to celebrate St Valentine’s Day.

Horszowski Trio with
Masumi Per Rostad, viola

Sunday, March 17, 2019, 4pm

Music in the Park Series is proud to debut the Horszowski Trio, joined for part of the program by Masumi Per Rostad, violist of the renowned Pacifica Quartet.  Hailed by The New Yorker as “destined for great things,” the members of the Horszowski Trio, who are also long-time friends, are Jesse Mills (violin), Raman Ramakrishnan (cello), and Rieko Aizawa (piano). Two-time Grammy-nominated violinist Jesse Mills first performed with Raman Ramakrishnan, founding cellist of the prize-winning Daedalus Quartet, at the Kinhaven Music School when they were children. In New York City, they met pianist Rieko Aizawa, who, upon being discovered by the late violinist and conductor Alexander Schneider, had made her U.S. debuts at the Kennedy Center and Carnegie Hall. Their musical bonds were strengthened at various schools and festivals around the world, including the Juilliard School and the Marlboro Festival. Ms. Aizawa was the last pupil of the legendary pianist, Mieczysław Horszowski (1892-1993), at the Curtis Institute. The Trio takes inspiration from Horszowski’s musicianship, integrity, and humanity. Like Horszowski, the Trio presents repertoire spanning the traditional and the contemporary. Their program features Schumann’s Piano Trio No.1 in D minor, a Brahms Piano Quartet, and Piano Trio by Charles Wuorinen.

Brentano String Quartet

Sunday, April 14, 2019, 4pm

Since its inception in 1992, the Brentano String Quartet has appeared throughout the world to popular and critical acclaim. The New York Times extols its “luxuriously warm sound [and] yearning lyricism.”  Within a few years of its formation, the Quartet garnered the first Cleveland Quartet Award and the Naumburg Chamber Music Award.  The Quartet had its first European tour in 1997, and was honored in the U.K. with the Royal Philharmonic Award for Most Outstanding Debut. That debut recital was at London’s Wigmore Hall, and the Quartet has continued its warm relationship with Wigmore, appearing there regularly and serving as the hall’s Quartet-in-residence in the 2000-01 season. As of July 2014, the Brentano Quartet succeeded the Tokyo Quartet as Artists in Residence at Yale University, departing from their 14-year residency at Princeton University.  The Brentano Quartet’s program is titled “Lamentations” and features music by Purcell, Haydn, Shostakovich, d”India, Carter, Lekeu, and Bartok.  The Quartet is named for Antonie Brentano, whom many scholars consider to be Beethoven’s “Immortal Beloved”, the intended recipient of his famous love confession.
