New Year's in Berlin

 

 
 
 
 
Dec 31, 2017
Ars Lyrica Houston / Zilkha Hall

Ars Lyrica's annual New Year's Eve celebration—which includes an elegant dinner, musical program, and festive gala—is always our most popular event of the year. For New Year's Eve 2017 we visit the Berlin salon of Sara Itzig Levy, whose home was a meeting place for literary and musical giants, including Bach's eldest sons and the young Felix Mendelssohn, Levy's grandnephew. This Levy-inspired program includes several works from her legendary collection, including a W. F. Bach flute concerto and a C. P. E. Bach double concerto for fortepiano and harpsichord—a work closely connected with our legendary hostess, who played one of the solo parts at its 1788 première.

 

Mario Aschauer: fortepiano
Matthew Dirst: harpsichord
Colin St Martin: traverso
