“The Alehouse Sessions” by Barokksolistene with Bjarte Eike

Schubert Club Mix
Thursday, October 12, 7:30 pm
Aria, 105 N 1st St
Minneapolis, MN 55401 United States
+ Google Map

Join us for Alehouse Sessions, an energetic evening of English 17th-century tavern music. This nontraditional concert will give the audience a window into this tumultuous period through Purcell overtures, English sea shanties, and Scandinavian folk songs thrown in for good measure. These sessions have been hailed as ‘irresistible’ (The Times), ‘superb’ (The Scotsman) and ‘fabulously unrestrained’ (The Guardian), and they have diverted away from the traditional concert model by ‘creating the effect of a late night jamming session’ (BBC Music Magazine). Using their own arrangement of the tunes, the Barokksolistene ‘Alehouse Boys’ will be making their Twin Cities debut in a program combining humor, unrivalled virtuosity, and a flare for improvisation.

Dover Quartet with David Shifrin, clarinet

Music in the Park Series
Sunday, November 12, 4:00 pm
Saint Anthony Park United Church of Christ, 2129 Commonwealth Ave
St Paul, 55108 United States
+ Google Map

The Dover Quartet catapulted to international stardom following a stunning sweep of the 2013 Banff International String Quartet Competition. Praised by The Strad for “exceptional interpretive maturity, tonal refinement and taut ensemble,” the quartet has become one of the most in-demand ensembles in the world. The Dover’s debut disc pays tribute to the renowned Guarneri Quartet, whose members served as mentors for the ensemble. Beginning their “mostly American” program with quartets by Richard Danielpour and Bartok, the Dover is joined by clarinetist David Shifrin to perform works for clarinet and string quartet by Corigliano and young American composer Chris Rogerson, along with arrangements of Duke Ellington tunes. Shifrin is in constant demand as an orchestral soloist, recitalist and chamber musician. His numerous recordings, including trios with cellist David Finckel and pianist Wu Han, have consistently garnered awards. A member of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center since 1989, Shifrin served as its artistic director from 1992 to 2004.

Eric Owens, bass-baritone & Susanna Phillips, soprano

International Artist Series
Wednesday, December 6, 10:30 am
Thursday, December 7, 7:30 pm
Ordway Concert Hall, 345 Washington St
St. Paul, MN 55102 United States
+ Google Map

This concert will feature vocal superstars Eric Owens and Susanna Phillips in a program featuring Schubert in the Ordway Concert Hall. Bass-baritone Eric Owens is loved for his rich, velvety voice and is a regular at major opera companies like the Metropolitan Opera and Lyric Opera Chicago. Susanna Phillips, winner of the The Metropolitan Opera’s 2010 Beverly Sills Artist Award, is in her ninth consecutive season with the Metropolitan Opera. This will be her International Artist Series debut. This popular duo recital program has been adored by audiences at Carnegie Hall and across America, and we are thrilled to share it with our Schubert Club audience. The Inquirer in Philadelphia comments on this recital program, “Owens is a master storyteller, who often gives not just the characters of the song’s scenario but the larger world in which they exist, Phillips delivers an almost microscopically close reading of the song and its protagonists, revealed with the detail of a fine Shakespearean actress. Never does she force her Mozart-weight voice while hitting various emotional peaks. No longer a merely promising young singer, she’s a mature artist with a highly personal relationship with Schubert.”

Clarice Assad, vocalist and composer & Sergio Assad, guitar

Schubert Club Mix
Sunday, December 10, 7:30 pm
Aria, 105 N 1st St
Minneapolis, MN 55401 United States
+ Google Map

Brazilian-American vocalist, composer, and pianist Clarice Assad and her world-renowned father Sergio Assad (guitar) will perform a jazz-inspired program primarily featuring music from their first recording together called Reliquia. In a review of this recording, All About Jazz states, “Clarice constantly captivates, whether singing in Portuguese, delivering wordless vocals, or taking to the piano bench, and Sergio, likewise, manages to seduce with his every gesture on guitar.” Clarice’s rising reputation as a composer-performer who comfortably straddles the worlds of jazz, classical, and traditional Brazilian rhythms is quickly catching up with her father’s international prominence as one of the world’s great guitarists. This concert, the first ever Twin Cities performance by this duo, will be a testament to the bonds forged through birth and life, continually strengthened in every small and large gesture of love that takes place between a parent and child.

Avi Avital, mandolin & Sérgio and Odair Assad, guitar

International Artist Series
Tuesday, February 20, 7:30 pm
Wednesday, February 21, 10:30 am
Ordway Concert Hall, 345 Washington St
St. Paul, MN 55102 United States
+ Google Map

Avi Avital is an Israeli mandolinist, composer, and performer best known for his renditions of well-known Baroque and folk music, much of which was originally written for other instruments. Acknowledged by The New York Times for his "exquisitely sensitive playing" and “stunning agility,” Avi Avital is the first mandolin player to receive a GRAMMY nomination in the category “Best Instrumental Soloist.” After a wildly successful performance with Schubert Club Mix in 2015 (view the video highlights here), we are delighted to welcome him back to hear another side of his playing.

Sérgio and Odair Assad are Brazilian-born brothers who have taken the classical guitar world by storm. Their exceptional artistry and uncanny ensemble playing come from both a family rich in Brazilian musical tradition and from studies with the guitar/lutenist Monina Távora (1921-2011), a disciple of Andrés Segovia. In addition to setting new performance standards, the Assads have played a major role in creating and introducing new music for two guitars. Their virtuosity has inspired a wide range of composers to write for them including Astor Piazzolla, Terry Riley, Radamés Gnattali, Marlos Nobre, and many others. The Assads last performed on our Music in the Park Series to a sold-out audience in May 2015. Hearing the musical talents of all three musicians together, all making their debuts on this series, will be a magical event.

Born of Korean parents, American violinist, Jennifer Koh, began playing the violin by chance, choosing the instrument in a Suzuki-method program only because spaces for cello and piano had been filled. She made her debut with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra at age 11 and went on to win the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, the Concert Artists Guild Competition, and an Avery Fisher Career Grant all when she was only 18 years old. She is recognized for her intense, commanding performances, delivered with dazzling virtuosity and technical assurance.

For this recital, she will be joined by internationally recognized Israeli pianist Shai Wosner,  both making their debuts on this series. The New York Times declared that “Mr. Wosner’s singing tone and expressive musicality complemented Ms. Koh’s insightful, richly hued playing,” and The San Jose Mercury News raved of a recent concert that “Koh's impetuous, bright-toned phrasing was attractively set against Wosner's flowing, articulate pianism.”
