Artistic & Executive Director and President's Welcome

Welcome to the Schubert Club! As the days grow shorter and the length of time that we (at least most of us) are happy to be outside is less and less, I’m thrilled that you are choosing to spend time enjoying music with Schubert Club. Over the coming weeks we have programs and activities in most of our concert series and various musical pursuits. We will enjoy a recital of Schubert songs of the highest level featuring established international vocal star Eric Owens with the rapidly rising talent, Clara Osowski in our International Artist Series. The phenomenal young Dover Quartet joins forces with clarinetist David Shifrin, who is about to be recognized by Chamber Music America for his long career as a chamber musician. In December, we will welcome a young a cappella vocal quintet from Germany, Calmus, with a program to help set the Holiday mood. Those music-lovers who enjoy concerts in less formal performance settings will, I hope be looking forward to the next Schubert Club Mix on December 10th at Aria, which features the extraordinary daughter/father pairing of Clarice and Sérgio Assad. And yes, it’s the same wonderful Sérgio Assad who will return later in the season with brother Odair (guitar) and Avi Avital (mandolin). Here at the Schubert Club we regularly reflect on the good fortune we’re blessed with to celebrate and share great music and musicians with all of you. Thank you for your support, thank you for letting music impact your life and warm holiday greetings from all of us to all of you.

Barry Kempton Artistic and Executive Director

Every organization, from your family to a major corporation, has to pay attention to its finances. The Schubert Club practices good financial stewardship. This has allowed us to present the finest in music and support our education programs, student competitions, and museum for many decades. We present over 60 concerts per year, 25 of which are free. In addition, many of our educational programs and our museum entrance are free. This is all done by a small but mighty staff of 10 and many volunteers who give generously of their time. Our administrative overhead for accomplishing all of this is well within industry standards. Our funding comes from multiple sources including ticket sales, a draw from our endowment, corporate grants, government grants, and individual grants and donations. We keep our ticket prices as low as we can. I have long thought Schubert Club concerts to be “the best musical bargain in town”. In addition, we have the “Five Dollar Scholar” program: inexpensive tickets for students! In recent years, Schubert Club has steadily reduced the draw from our endowment so we can continue to provide wonderful musical experiences as we have done for the past 136 years. We just received our first grant in a decade from the National Endowment for the Arts. We are grateful to Minnesota foundations and corporations for their generous support of the arts, and to the citizens of the great state of Minnesota for funding through the Minnesota State Arts Board. Finally, we thank you, our audience, for supporting us so generously over the years. We hope that you will continue to help us present the finest in music for many years to come.

DOVER QUARTET The Dover Quartet catapulted to international stardom following a stunning sweep of the 2013 Banff International String Quartet Competition, becoming one of the most in-demand ensembles in the world. The New Yorker recently dubbed them “the young American string quartet of the moment,” and The Strad raved that the Quartet is “already pulling away from their peers with their exceptional interpretive maturity, tonal refinement and taut ensemble.” In 2013-14, the Quartet was the first ever Quartet-in-Residence for the venerated Curtis Institute of Music, and is now faculty Quartet-in-Residence at Northwestern University’s Bienen School of Music.

In addition to winning the Grand Prize and all three Special Prizes at the 2013 Banff International String Quartet Competition, the Dover Quartet has continued to receive accolades: in 2015 it was announced that the group had been awarded the highly prestigious Cleveland Quartet Award, and shortly thereafter, Lincoln Center awarded the quartet the annual Hunt Family Award, as part of the organization’s Emerging Artist Awards. In its early years, the quartet also won grand prize at the Fischoff Competition, and special prizes at the Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition. During the 2015-16 season, the Dover Quartet performed more than 120 concerts throughout

the United States, Canada, Europe, and the Middle East. Highlights include the group’s debut at Carnegie Hall, and several residencies including those at Dumbarton Oaks, Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival, and People’s Symphony Concerts in New York. 2016 also includes the quartet’s first tour of Israel, and the recording of three albums, to be released beginning next fall. The group regularly appears with acclaimed collaborators, and this season these will include such artists as Anthony McGill, David Shifrin, Anne-Marie McDermott, Avi Avital, and Edgar Meyer. The collaborations with Avi and Edgar will include extensive tours together next season. The Dover Quartet participates regularly in some of the continent’s most reputable summer festivals, including Chamber Music Northwest, Artosphere, Bravo Vail, and the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, and are active proponents of new music: this season included a premier of Pulitzer-Prizewinning Caroline Shaw’s new quartet at Dumbarton Oaks, and next season will include the premieres of multiple commissions, including works from Richard Danielpour and Michael Djupstrom. The Dover Quartet was formed in 2008 at the Curtis Institute of Music, and continued their studies as Graduate Quartet-in-Residence at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music from 2011-13. Because of the exceptional faculty at both of these institutions, the group draws from the musical lineage of the Cleveland, Vermeer, Concord, and Guarneri Quartets. The Quartet has been mentored extensively by Shmuel Ashkenasi, James Dunham, Norman Fischer, Kenneth Goldsmith, Joseph Silverstein, Arnold Steinhardt, Michael Tree, and Peter Wiley. Dedicated to sharing their music with underserved communities, the quartet is an active member of Music for Food, an initiative to help musicians fight hunger in their home communities.

Mr. Shifrin has appeared with the Philadelphia and Minnesota Orchestras, and the Dallas, Seattle, Houston, Milwaukee, Detroit, and Denver symphonies among many others in the US, and internationally with orchestras in Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan. A sought after recitalist and chamber musician, he collaborates frequently with such distinguished ensembles and artists as the Guarneri, Tokyo, and Emerson String Quartets, Wynton Marsalis, and pianists Emanuel Ax and André Watts. An artist member of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center since 1989, David Shifrin served as its artistic director from 1992 to 2004. He has toured extensively throughout the US with CMSLC and appeared in several national television broadcasts on Live From Lincoln Center. He has also been the artistic director of Chamber Music Northwest in Portland, Oregon since 1981. David Shifrin joined the faculty at the Yale School of Music in 1987 and was appointed Artistic Director of the Chamber Music Society of Yale and Yale’s annual concert series at Carnegie Hall in September 2008. He has also served on the faculties of The Juilliard School, University of Southern California, University of Michigan, Cleveland Institute of Music, and the University of Hawaii. In 2007 he was awarded an honorary professorship at China’s Central Conservatory in Beijing. Mr. Shifrin’s recordings on Delos, DGG, Angel/EMI, Arabesque, BMG, SONY, and CRI have consistently garnered praise and awards. He has received three Grammy nominations – for a collaborative recording with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center of the collected chamber music of Claude Debussy


(Delos), the Copland Clarinet Concerto (Angel/EMI) and Ravel’s Introduction and Allegro with Nancy Allen, Ransom Wilson, and the Tokyo String Quartet (Angel/EMI). His recording of the Mozart Clarinet Concerto with the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra, performed in its original version on a specially built basset clarinet, was named Record of the Year by Stereo Review. His latest recording, Shifrin Plays Schifrin (Aleph Records), is a collection of clarinet works by composer/conductor Lalo Schifrin. Both the recording of the Copland Clarinet Concerto and a 2008 recording of Leonard Bernstein’s Clarinet Sonata with pianist Anne-Marie McDermott have been released on iTunes via Angel/EMI and Deutsche Grammophon. In addition to the Avery Fisher Prize, David Shifrin is the recipient of a Solo Recitalists’ Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts and the 1998 Distinguished Alumnus Award from the Music Academy of the West. At the outset of his career, he won the top prize at both the Munich and the Geneva International Competitions. Mr. Shifrin resides in Connecticut with his wife and is the father of four children – Henry, Olivia, Sam, and William. David Shifrin plays on MoBa cocobolo wood clarinets by Backun. David Shifrin is represented by CM Artists New York.

PROGRAM NOTES Four Miniatures for String Quartet Richard Danielpour (b. 1956) Richard Danielpour was born in New York City and studied at Oberlin College, the New England Conservatory and the Juilliard School of Music. He has received many commissions from celebrated artists, including Jessye Norman, Gil Shaham, Thomas Hampson, and the Guarneri String Quartet. 2016 brought seven Danielpour world premieres in the U.S., including a Percussion Concerto with the New Jersey Symphony and Talking to Aphrodite, a collaboration with writer Erica Jong. He is currently working on an oratorio, The Passion of Yeshua, for the 2018 Oregon Bach Festival. Danielpour teaches at the Manhattan School of Music and the Curtis Institute. “Four Miniatures for String Quartet was composed for the Dover Quartet in the early months of 2016,” writes the composer. “I was commissioned by the Walton Arts Center for a piece of not more than twelve minutes. All four movements have a certain dance-like quality to them. I wrote this work out of deep admiration and respect for this extraordinary young Quartet.” 12


An die Musik

String Quartet No. 1, Opus 7, Sz. 91 Béla Bartók (1881–1945) Béla Bartók’s six string quartets were written over the course of 31 years from 1908 to 1939. They are generally regarded as the most significant works in the genre since Beethoven, and offer a clear overview of Bartók’s compositional development. Musicologist Mosco Carner likens them “to the pages of a diary to which a great artist confided the most private experiences and adventures of his heart and mind.” In the Quartet No. 1 (1908) Bartók makes the transition from the bravura of Strauss and Liszt to a highly personal style that assimilates influences of Hungarian peasant music and the music of his contemporaries.

Young Bartók One would never suspect the note A to be the tonal center of this work, for there is no A in the first measure, and all twelve chromatic tones are stated by bar three. But this is in no way a “twelve-tone” piece. Rather, the chromaticism seems to symbolize a kind of despondency or confusion. Young Bartók was infatuated at this time with Stefi Geyer, going so far as to write a violin concerto for her. But she spurned him. “I have begun a quartet,” Bartók wrote to Geyer. “The first theme is the theme of [the concerto’s] second movement: this is my funeral dirge.” Violins begin the lament with falling sixths, intertwined in imitation. The canon is repeated by the lower instruments. A second theme is passionately stated by viola over drone-fifths. Bartók never takes the easy route; he rarely chooses the note or chord you expect. Even the major chords of climaxes are usually inverted, giving them restless energy. The three movements of this inventive work are more like segments of an orange than a mixed-fruit basket. We are drawn through quickening duets into a waltz-like Allegretto. The smallest detail—a pair of two-note slurs in contrary motion—provides the spark for what follows. Cello is featured in the finale’s Introduzione. Then, like a dancer shedding formal clothes to reveal native costume, the Allegro vivace strikes up a folk-like version of the waltz’s four-note motive. Over pizzicato cello chords, viola begins a grazioso fugato, the tail of the subject whipping about like that of an angry cat. There are fleeting references to Debussy’s style, and two brief but glowing adagio episodes in which violins sing over a

tremulous viola. But from the opening duet to the final resonant chords, the work gathers momentum relentlessly.

century. His vast oeuvre includes a long list of jazz standards, popular songs, symphonic works, movie scores, sacred music, and a ballet.

Thirty Thousand Days Chris Rogerson (b. 1988)

The first two movements of the Ducal Suite, “Clarinet Lament” (1936) and “Air-conditioned Jungle” (1946) are tributes to Ellington’s two great clarinetists, Barney Bigard and Jimmy Hamilton. Ellington composed these two pieces as one-movement concertos, and they display the very different styles of the two clarinetists. Bigard was from New Orleans and was a follower of Sidney Bechet. Like Bechet he played with considerable vibrato and could bend pitches up and down to give the music emotional intensity. Ellington subtly hinted at the New Orleans setting of “Barney’s Concerto” (his alternative title) by basing the middle section on the harmonic changes of “Basin Street Blues.” Jimmy Hamilton replaced Bigard in the Ellington Orchestra in 1943. He brought a more modern approach to the instrument, strongly influenced by Benny Goodman. “Air-conditioned Jungle” is modern with a vengeance, updating the “jungle” style that Ellington deployed at the Cotton Club in the 1920s, to the more dissonant idiom of bebop, and even beyond.

The music of Chris Rogerson has been performed across the United States, played by the Symphony Orchestras of San Francisco, Atlanta, and Houston. Rogerson’s teachers at Curtis, Yale, and Princeton included Jennifer Higdon and Aaron Jay Kernis. Among his many awards are a Theodore Presser Career Grant and the Charles Ives Scholarship from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. This season, Yo-Yo Ma premieres a new Rogerson work for cello and orchestra. Chris Rogerson introduces the work: “My father, ever the statistician, prefers to think of life as a 30,000day journey, divided into three equal stages. When my sister and I reached our 10,000th days soon after turning 27, he excitedly called to make sure we knew the milestone we had reached. Thirty Thousand Days explores this idea of life's three stages. In the first movement, I try to evoke the joy, innocence, and sweetness of youth. The second movement depicts struggle, coldness, and fury. The last movement imagines acceptance, resignation, loss, and love. Thirty Thousand Days is dedicated to my father.” Rendezvous Alan Shulman (1915–2002) Born in Baltimore, Alan Shulman began cello lessons at the age of eight and studied at Peabody and Juilliard. He was a founder member of Toscanini’s NBC Symphony Orchestra and a co-founder of the Stuyvesant String Quartet. “Alan Shulman wrote Rendezvous for Clarinet and Strings for a radio broadcast in August 1946,” writes David Schiff, the arranger of the Ellington suite that closes this program. “Benny Goodman had invited the Stuyvesant Quartet to perform a movement of the Mozart Clarinet Quintet on his radio program, and Shulman suggested that Goodman commission him to write a new short work for the same instruments. An elegantly written composition, Rendezvous begins with strictly classical music for the string quartet, then the clarinet jumps in playing in Goodman’s swing style; finally these two ideas are superimposed, demonstrating beautifully how the two apparently different idioms can coexist most happily.” Ducal Suite Duke Ellington (1899-1974), arr. David Schiff

Duke Ellington and his Orchestra Ellington composed the song “Heaven” for his Second Concert of Sacred Music which premiered at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in New York in 1968. The original soloists were the Swedish soprano Alice Babs and alto saxophonist Johnny Hodges, whose sound defined the Ellington Orchestra from 1928 right up to his death in 1970. In this arrangement I have tried to translate the extraordinary styles of both of these performers to the language of the clarinet. Ducal Suite concludes with one of Ellington’s earliest hits, “Rockin’ in Rhythm.” Ellington often prefaced performances of this song with a later piece, “Kinda Dukish,” and I have followed this precedent in this arrangement, which might be termed a jazz rondo.

Indian musicians Murugaboopathi and Nirmala Rajasekar leading a KidsJam Workshop.

Community Engagement As I glanced over my to-do list today, initially feeling like the list of goals varied immensely, I suddenly realized there was an overriding theme in that list of tasks. This theme was much different from one that would have been as prominent just a few years ago in my role as Education Director. Community engagement . . . a theme that is coming up over and over again in the work of Schubert Club. I finished preparing a job description just today for a future Education and Community Engagement Associate. One of the discussion items on the agenda I’m preparing for this week’s Education Committee meeting focuses on the goal to “collaborate with an underrepresented neighborhood or community to forge new connections through a shared passion for music”. The other task for the day was to discuss program content with musicians who will present our first week of KidsJam Workshops within the communities we collaborate and engage with. It was a great feeling today to realize and appreciate the work we are doing already in programs like KidsJam and Project CHEER to engage community, and to look ahead enthusiastically as we plan for the future. As an Education Director, one of my primary roles is to create better ways to bring meaningful and purposeful experiences in music to students while always remaining sensitive to the needs of a multi-cultured society. For each student we engage with, our goal is to increase interest and

As we prepare for our third full season of KidsJam, I have been reflecting on the positive ways this program has impacted students—primarily from minority backgrounds—who have little or no access to music through their schools or within their families. Currently we have a presence in the communities of Hallie Q Brown, Arlington Hills Community Center, Ramsey County Library– Maplewood, and Arts Us. Through KidsJam, these students aged 4-14, experience workshops where they play, listen, learn, and create with music. In these highly interactive workshops, participants get involved through creative activities and movement, and learn about the cultures and sounds behind the music. These programs promote positive emotions, confidence in creative self-expression, respect for diverse cultures, and a deepened understanding of music. Last season, when artist Nirmala Rajasekar (an Indian Saraswati veena player) performed for a group of KidsJam students, she was awed by the flood of deep, powerful, and mature emotional responses to the music from these children, most only 7 or 8 years old. Nirmala remarked, “I was personally full of gratitude to the magical notes of music that connect us, help us understand one another, and transform us continually across man-made boundaries . . . a bridge like none other.” The site coordinator at the event remarked, “It was an emotional night full of peacefulness as many children were willing to share their stories and inner feelings. I saw music bring out such raw emotions from our kids and brought us all closer.” I look forward to this season as we deepen our relationships with existing communities and seek out new communities, forging lasting connections with students of many cultures, and bettering their lives through the power of music!

PROGRAM NOTES Three Madrigals for Violin & Viola Bohuslav Martinů (b. Polička, Czech Republic, 1890; d. Liestal, Switzerland, 1959) Bohuslav Martinů, perhaps the finest and certainly the most prolific of Czech composers in the 20th Century, makes a great case for late bloomers. Although he enrolled as a promising violinist at the Prague Conservatory at age 16, he was a poor student with no appetite for the rigorous academics or the daily discipline of violin practice. What he did possess was a remarkably keen mind for

memorizing and analyzing music that astounded his classmates. Regardless, he was eventually dismissed for “incorrigible negligence.” What turned his life around was his move to the fertile petri dish that was Paris in 1923 and its competing trends in music: jazz, neoclassicism, surrealism, and the avant-garde world of Stravinsky and the composers of “Les Six." While he assimilated these trends, Martinů also retained close ties to his homeland, where he often mined the rich vein of his Bohemian roots for musical ideas.

Three Madrigals was written during a particularly tough period for him in 1947, around the time of his near-fatal fall from a balcony while at Tanglewood. The resulting head injury delayed its completion by about 6 months. Listen for Martinů’s signature brand of Czech-inflected folk style—it sounds almost like country fiddling at times—that is very much in the tradition of Smetana and Dvořák. You would not be wrong to call this “country and eastern” music! Piano Trio No. 1 (1954) Leon Kirchner (b. Brooklyn, 1919; d. Manhattan,2009) Commissioned by the Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge Foundation for the 50th anniversary of the Coleman Chamber Music Series of Pasadena, Leon Kirchner’s piano trio of 1954 reflects the influences of his formidable teachers: Arnold Schoenberg, Roger Sessions, and Ernest Bloch. Pianist Cheryl Seltzer, co-director of the Continuum Ensemble, which has recorded the Piano Trio No. 1, gives the following insightful description of the work: By the time of the Trio, Kirchner had abandoned the traditional scheme of distinctly characterized movements in favor of more continuous structures. Here, the two movements are interdependent. The first, longer movement evolves in a manner similar to the Piano Sonata, but the fluctuations between the slow, lyric theme, introduced by the cello, and an agitated section are treated with greater complexity and unpredictability. The movement ends as with a question mark, the piano’s final belllike chords a bridge between the two movements. The second movement reestablishes the moments of introspective calm from the first movement. The ascending gestures of the restless first movement now yield to a falling, consoling figure. Agitated elements, however, gradually make inroads and aggressively drive the work to its final powerful resolution.

Leon Kirchner Born of Russian parents in Brooklyn, Kirchner grew up in Los Angeles. Extraordinarily gifted as both a pianist and a conductor, he was first and foremost a composer. As a faculty member at Harvard, he famously taught a class called Music 180: Performance and Analysis. The course was one of the few ways musicians on campus could receive course credit for playing their instruments and also became a crossroads of remarkable talent. Class alumni include Yo-Yo Ma, John Adams, and Alan Gilbert. Four Rags for Violin and Piano John Novacek (b. 1964) Program note provided by the composer: “I consider it good fortune that my initial infatuation with music coincided with the American ragtime revival of the 1970s, a revival that shone a light on the semi-forgotten music of the great Scott Joplin, et al. By turns tender and exciting, those early piano rags captivated me and ensured that playing piano was my future. But playing rags wasn't enough; I needed to write them—and ragtime is a delightful genre within which to compose: the brief march structure may be rigid, but that only allows for more occasion to tweak a listener's expectations. I composed numerous piano rags in my late teens and twenties, and I have continued up until now to arrange those rags for various instrumental combinations. Four Rags for Violin and Piano was originally put together for violinist Leila Josefowicz. A fiddling shuffle and a bit of polyrhythm give "Intoxication" its light-headedness; "4th Street Drag" brings a touch of the torch song to the idiom; "Cockles" is a throwback to the classic Missouri rag; and "Full Stride Ahead" is my mini-tribute to that master of Harlem stride, James P. Johnson.”

PROGRAM NOTES CONTINUED American Quartet in F Major, Opus 96 Antonín Dvořák (b. Nelahozeves, Czech Republic, 1841; d. Prague, 1904) While Antonín Dvořák may have been the quintessential Czech composer of his era, he actually wrote three of his best-known works while on American soil: The New World Symphony (Op. 95), a gorgeous string quintet (Op. 97), and perhaps his signature chamber music work, the string quartet popularly known as the American Quartet (Op. 96). Not bad for a three-year stay, given that he also was quite busy with his duties as director of the new National Conservatory in New York, guest conducting and fulfilling his many obligations as a visiting celebrity. Although he and his family were persuaded to decamp to New York from Prague by the offer of a then unheard-of salary of $15,000 to head the Conservatory, America was a mixed experience for Dvořák; he was often homesick, was ambivalent about living in New York, and sometimes his salary checks did not come on time. So the Dvořák’s were thrilled to get an invitation to spend a long summer vacation in 1893 at the Bohemian colony at Spillville in northeast Iowa. They were surrounded by Czech-speakers and familiar food and games. Within days of his arrival he started work on a new string quartet. Typically, Dvořák was a methodical, deliberate composer, but for this piece the work went very fast. In just three days he was done, writing at the end “Thanks be to the Lord God. I am satisfied. It went quickly.”

Antonín Dvořák feeding some Pigeons A shimmering opening in the violins is the backdrop for a confident, sprightly opening theme in the viola. The slow movement (Lento) is the piece’s crowning glory. It is a beautiful aria with most of the melodic duties shared by the first violin and cello, while the 2nd violin and viola sustain a busy, flowing accompaniment. In the 3rd movement, Dvořák incorporates the song of the Scarlet Tanager, a bird which pestered him constantly outside his window while he composed. A lesser man might have just shot the damn thing, but Dvořák, was a keen pigeon breeder and avid bird watcher and took the bird's song and worked it into the third movement. The finale starts with a rhythmic pattern based on a single note that many believe is an adaptation of native Indian drumming. The first violin dances a happy tune around the drumming beat, with other melodies coming in, all in the same joyful character. The piece has the proverbial happy ending that should leave you smiling. Program notes © 2017 by Michael Adams

“Nothing short of remarkable . . . they, quite simply, bring whatever they sing to glorious life.” That is how the Deseret Morning News described a concert by Calmus, the First Prize Winner of the Concert Artists Guild Competition. Founded in 1999 in Germany, the a cappella quintet embodies the rich choral tradition of its hometown of Leipzig, the city so closely associated with Bach and Mendelssohn. Whether singing music by those German masters or other works in its diverse repertoire, Calmus captivates both audiences and critics with its charming stage presence, flawless technique and entertaining presentation. All graduates of Leipzig‘s renowned St. Thomas Church Choir School, Calmus offers the unique combination of a pure soprano voice with four male voices ranging from bass to countertenor. The seamless blend of these five voices lends itself to the almost limitless range of music the ensemble offers, from renaissance and baroque masters through great German romantic works, all the way to contemporary choral repertoire, as well as pop songs and jazz. Calmus conveys everything it performs with great respect and also with a sense of joy in singing that is obvious to the listener: “. . . the singers bring tremendous character and musical depth to their interpretations . . . that transcends the language of the lyrics” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel). Highlighted performances in 2017-18 include a return to Lincoln Center Great Performers in New York City, and debut concerts for: Schubert Club’s Music in the Park Series, Pro Musica (Joplin, Missori), and the Cal Poly Arts series (San Luis Obispo, California). In early 2018, Calmus is also a featured ensemble performing for the Wisconsin Choral Directors Association conference (at The Grand Theatre in Wausau), and for the Western regional conference of the Amercian Choral Director’s Associaton (ACDA) in Pasadena, California. With nearly 20 recordings to its credit, Calmus' current CDs (Carus label)­—Luther’s Collage and Mitten im Leben 1517 (featuring the Lautten Compagney)—commemorate the 500th Anniverary of the Protestant Reformation, and both were selected as Forbes magazine’s "Classical CD of the Week" (Jan. 25, 2017). Their 2014 Madrigals of Madness album was selected by The New York Times Classical critics among the best CD’s, and their 2015 release, Christmas Carols of the World,

led to a special holiday concert at New York Public Radio’s The Greene Space, with live video streaming on WQXR. Other recent releases include Mythos 116, featuring six different settings of Psalm 116; Touched, showcasing a unique mixture of classical and popular songs ranging from Purcell and Monteverdi to Elton John and Sting; Lied:gut!, a disc of German folksongs which won the 2009 Echo Klassik Award; and Christmas Carols, Calmus' first Holiday CD which was enthusiastically received: “. . . perfectly balanced ensemble singing . . . every chord given exacting importance” (Classics Today). Recent North American highlights include Calmus’ New York debut at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, and other New York City engagements at Lincoln Center Great Performers, Met Museum Presents, The Cloisters, Schneider Concerts at the New School, and a special program in fall 2012 at Manhattan’s Holy Trinity Lutheran Church to celebrate the 800th Anniversary of the St. Thomas Choir School. Other featured US career engagments include Krannert Center for the Performing Arts, Purdue University Convocations, Ravinia’s Rising Stars series, Washington Performing Arts, University of Iowa’s Hancher Auditorium, Clemson University’s Brooks Center for the Performing Arts, San Francisco’s Morrison Arts Series, Bach Society of Houston, and Northeastern Illinois University’s Jewel Box Series (Chicago). United States Festival appearances include: the Virginia Arts Festival; Rockport Chamber Music Festival; Chautauqua Institution; Princeton Summer Music, and Wisconsin’s Madison Early Music Festival and Green Lake Festival. An active concert schedule worldwide has taken Calmus across Germany, Austria, Belgium, Switzerland, France, Ireland, Spain, and Portugal as well as Central and South America. Festival appearances include International a cappella Week in Hannover and the Schleswig-Holstein Festival where the group attended a master class with the King’s Singers. In addition to garnering First Prize at the CAG Competiton, other prestigious awards include First Prizes at the fourth annual Robert Schumann Choral Competition, the International Competition for Vocal Ensembles in Finland, and the 37th Tolosa Choral Contest in Spain.



This concert is dedicated in memory of Virginia and Edward Brooks, Jr. by their daughters, Katherine Brooks and Julie Zelle.

ERIC OWENS, BASS-BARITONE Bass-baritone Eric Owens has a unique reputation as an esteemed interpreter of classic works and a champion of new music. Equally at home in orchestral, recital, and operatic repertoire, Mr. Owens brings his powerful poise, expansive voice, and instinctive acting faculties to stages around the world. Eric Owens launched the 2016-17 season with his role debut as Wotan in David Pountney’s new production of Wagner’s Das Rheingold at the Lyric Opera of Chicago. He sang a trio of operas at the Metropolitan Opera that include the MET premiere of Kaijo Saariaho’s L’amour de Loin, a new production of Rusalka under Sir Mark Elder, and a revival of Idomeneo conducted by James Levine. Other highlights include recitals with Susanna Phillips at Carnegie Hall and Lawrence Brownlee at Lyric Opera of Chicago, and for the third time he joins the Chicago Symphony’s Negaunee Music Institute to present an interactive recital for incarcerated youth with Riccardo Muti and Joyce DiDonato. Symphonic highlights of Mr. Owens’ recent seasons included performances of Verdi’s Requiem with the New York Philharmonic conducted by Alan Gilbert and the Toronto Symphony Orchestra conducted by Sir Andrew Davis, Ravel’s L’enfant et les sortileges with the Swedish Radio Symphony and Chicago Symphony Orchestra, both under the baton of EsaPekka Salonen, and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra conducted by Riccardo Muti. He also performed a duo recital



An die Musik

Mr. Owens has created an uncommon niche for himself in the ever-growing body of contemporary opera works through his determined tackling of new and challenging roles. He received great critical acclaim for portraying the title role in the world premiere of Elliot Goldenthal’s Grendel with the Los Angeles Opera, and again at the Lincoln Center Festival, in a production directed and designed by Julie Taymor. Mr. Owens also enjoys a close association with John Adams, for whom he performed the role of General Leslie Groves in the world premiere of Doctor Atomic at the San Francisco Opera, and of the Storyteller in the world premiere of A Flowering Tree at Peter Sellars’s New Crowned Hope Festival in Vienna and later with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Doctor Atomic was later recorded and received the 2012 Grammy for Best Opera Recording. Mr. Owens is featured on two Telarc recordings with the Atlanta Symphony: Mozart’s Requiem and scenes from Strauss’ Elektra and Die Frau ohne Schatten, both conducted by Donald Runnicles. He is featured on the Nonesuch Records release of A Flowering Tree. Mr. Owens has been recognized with multiple honors, including the 2003 Marian Anderson Award, a 1999 ARIA award, second prize in the Plácido Domingo Operalia Competition, the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, and the Luciano Pavarotti International Voice Competition. A native of Philadelphia, Mr. Owens began his musical training as a pianist at the age of six, followed by formal oboe study at age eleven under Lloyd Shorter of the Delaware Symphony and Louis Rosenblatt of the Philadelphia Orchestra. He studied voice while an undergraduate at Temple University, and then as a graduate student at the Curtis Institute of Music. He currently studies with Armen Boyajian. He serves on the Board of Trustees of both the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts and Astral Artistic Services.

Tim Macdonald & Jeremy Ward, Scottish-Baroque Fiddle Duo

Tim Macdonald was the first US National Scottish Fiddling Champion to win on a Baroque violin, and his performances with Trio Settecento, Susie Petrov, Colyn Fischer, the Bach and Beethoven Ensemble, and many others have taken him from New York City’s Frick Collection to the villages of Indonesia, countless country and contra dances, Scotland’s Blair Castle, and beyond. Recent projects include helping to perform Scotland’s first opera, The Gentle Shepherd, in full for the first time in over two centuries, lecturing on applying the rhetorical ideas of the Scottish Enlightenment to modern fiddling, playing fully-staged Elizabethan jigs with Steve Player, joining classical superstar Rachel Barton Pine for an encore of traditional tunes following her performance of Bruch’s Scottish Fantasy, and serving as music and dancing master at a thoroughly-researched recreation of a 1770s American tavern.

Thursday, December 21, 2017, Noon Landmark Center


The Schubert Club’s 5th annual winter show highlights the extraordinary contributions of Minnesota composers and songwriters with new songs, carols, and concert pieces inspired by the holiday season. Curated by Abbie Betinis.

Carrie Henneman Shaw, soprano • Laura Betinis Healy, mezzo soprano Nicholas Chalmers, tenor • Timothy C. Takach, bass Audrey Slote, cello • Dan Chouinard, accordion Carrie Henneman Shaw is a two-time winner of the McKnight Fellowship for Musicians (2010, 2017). She has premiered major works by such Minnesota composers as Jocelyn Hagen and Abbie Betinis, and performed American premieres of works by Georg Friedrich Haas, Hans Thomalla, and Augusta Read Thomas. Carrie also specializes in music of the 17th century and has performed operatic roles with Boston Early Music Festival. Carrie is a member of Chicago's Ensemble Dal Niente and Quince Contemporary Vocal Ensemble. Carrie is an instructor at Winona State University and Bethel University.

Laura Betinis Healy has performed with chamber and choral ensembles throughout the Northeast and Midwest. As an active soloist in the Boston area, Laura has been featured with the Oriana Consort, King’s Chapel Choir, and Cappella Clausura, with whom she recorded The Complete Vespers of Cozzolani, and appeared as Anima (“the soul”) in the staged Hildegard von Bingen opera Ordo Virtutum. Last year, Laura appeared on the Minnesota Orchestra’s Inside the Classics program.

Nicholas Chalmers has sung with The Rose Ensemble, The Bach Society of Minnesota and Lyra Baroque Orchestra, the Minnesota Bach Ensemble, Glorious Revolution Baroque, The Singers-Minnesota Choral Artists, and the Minnesota Chorale. Recent solo engagements include Oratory, Magnum Chorum, the Church Music Association of America, and the St. Mark's Cathedral Concert Series. Nicholas is Director of Music at Chesterton Academy, Director of Music at Annunciation Church in South Minneapolis, and Artistic Director of the Mirandola Ensemble.


Timothy C. Takach is a composer, singer and clinician. As a full-time composer, Timothy has a healthy schedule of commissions, and his work has been called “gorgeous” (Washington Post) and “eventful” (Star Tribune). A co-founder and longtime member of Cantus, he has also performed with VocalEssence, Seraphic Fire, the SPCO Chorale and other ensembles. He is co-founder and vice president of Graphite Publishing and a founding member of the Independent Music Publishers Cooperative.

Audrey Slote has performed on A Prairie Home Companion, and participated in St. Olaf’s 100th Anniversary Christmas Festival. She earned a Masters of Music in cello performance as a graduate fellow at the University of Minnesota, studying with Tanya Remenikova, and is currently pursuing a second Masters in music theory, where her research focuses on intersections between music theory, feminism, and Jewish history. Praised by the Star Tribune for her “pensive” tone and “mournful cello ruminations,” Slote maintains an active career as a freelance cellist and teacher.

Dan Chouinard has been pianist and accordionist for many Twin Cities performers, and a writer of shows for radio and stage. He’s appeared often on A Prairie Home Companion. As a writer and host he’s created programs for MPR, the MN Historical Society, the Rose Ensemble and others. His show Civil War Homecoming played at the Fitzgerald Theater in April 2015, was broadcast statewide on MPR, and continues to be shown on TPT. His stage musical Steerage Song toured throughout Minnesota in 2013. In 2014 his show Cafe Europa, about bicycling with an accordion from Naples to Normandy in search of Minnesota WWII stories, was televised statewide.

Schubert Club Endowment and Legacy Society



The Schubert Club Endowment was started in the 1920s. Today, our endowment provides more than one-quarter of our annual budget, allowing us to offer free and affordable performances, education programs, and museum experiences for our community. Several endowment funds have been established to support education and performance programs, including the International Artist Series with special funding by the family of Maud Moon Weyerhaeuser Sanborn in her memory. We thank the following donors who have made commitments to our endowment funds:

Ruth and Dale Warland Katherine Wells and Stephen Wilging Peggy R. Wolfe

Music in the Park Series was established by Julie Himmelstrup in 1979. In 2010, Music in the Park Series merged into the Schubert Club and continues as a highly sought-after chamber music series in our community. In celebration of the 35th Anniversary of Music in the Park Series and its founder Julie Himmelstrup in 2014, we created the Music in the Park Series Fund of the Schubert Club Endowment to help ensure long-term stability of the Series. Thank you to Dorothy Mattson and all of the generous contributors who helped start this new fund:


The Eleanor J. Andersen Scholarship and Education Fund The Rose Anderson Scholarship Fund Edward Brooks, Jr. The Eileen Bigelow Memorial The Helen Blomquist Visiting Artist Fund The Clara and Frieda Claussen Fund Catherine M.
