A Musical Excursion to Paris and Vienna
Enjoy Paris in the spring with the Trio in G Major by Claude Debussy. This is a lyrical and optimistic work, full of youthful charm and enthusiasm, composed by the 18-year-old Debussy in 1880. Each of the four movements is a painting in sound; elegant and with a refined sense of color and texture, which becomes a cornerstone of Debussy’s innovative and groundbreaking style in the following years.
Then head with the trio to Vienna for the “Ghost” Trio in D Major, Op. 70 No. 1 by Ludwig van Beethoven. Carl Czerny, Beethoven’s student, known to all pianists as the composer of relentless exercises and etudes, commented that the slow movement of the D major Trio reminded him of the ghost scene in the opening of Hamlet, and the nickname has remained to this day. The “Ghost”, composed in 1808, is an epic work by the master composer at the height of his creative powers. It falls in the middle or “Heroic” period of Beethoven’s life, which places it in the same time frame as many of his towering masterworks, such as the “Emperor” Concerto, the “Appassionata” Sonata and the great Fifth Symphony.

Featured Artist for March is Mosaic Artist Jim Bachor:
“Using the same materials, tools and methods of the archaic craftsmen, I create mosaics that speak of modern things in an ancient voice. My work locks into mortar unexpected concepts drawn from the present.
By harnessing and exploiting the limitations of this indestructible technique, my work surprises the viewer while challenging long-held notions of what a mosaic should be. Like low-tech pixels, hundreds if not thousands of tiny, hand-cut pieces of Italian glass and marble comprise my work.
This work is my mark.”
