Camerata:
The Angels Sang

The Brattleboro Camerata is incredibly excited to perform their debut concert.
The Camerata consists of 17 exceptional singers auditioned from throughout the region, who will offer a program of 10 seasonal works spanning the years 1400-1600 entitled “The Angels Sang.”
The pieces to be performed include English carols, German chorales, Latin motets, and Spanish villancicos from familiar names like Palestrina, Josquin, di Lasso, and Victoria, as well as less frequently performed composers like the Spanish Mateo Flecha and Cristóbal de Morales, and the African-Portuguese Vicente Lusitano.

Painted Dreams

In the throes of a New England winter, we hope that “Painted Dreams” helps you close your eyes and think of sunnier times.

We begin with Adolphus Hailstork’s Divertimento for Violin and Viola, written as a wedding gift to two of his musician friends, Eva Cappelletti-Chao and Phillipe Chao.

Next we’ll play Jeffrey Mumford’s beautifully layered and textured string quartet, A Veil of Liquid Diamonds. An avid painter as well as a composer, Mumford writes that his work is “inspired by cloud imagery, suspended structures that continually split off and recombine as analogous to the formation of layers of simultaneous musical development.”

We’ll wrap up the program with Tchaikovsky’s dashing and daring Souvenir de Florence string sextet. He wrote this piece on one of his visits to Italy, drawing on both Italian themes and the Russian melodies of his homeland.


Adolphus Hailstork: Divertimento for violin and viola
Jeffrey Mumford: A Veil of Liquid Diamonds (or another piece by him) for String Quartet
Pyotr Tchaikovsky: Souvenir de Florence, Op. 70

Performing will be:
Domenic Salerni & Maya French, violin / Brianna Fischler & Lysander Jaffe, viola / Ben Swartz & Kamyron Williams, cello

Season Guest
Palaver Beehive -
Behind the Looking Glass

For our final chamber concert of the year, we’ll explore some of the new musical ideas that propel our chamber music tradition into the future.

We start our evening with Caroline Shaw’s Entr’acte, composed in response to a Haydn quartet and in dialogue with the classical tradition in general. Riffing on classical gestures, Shaw’s music takes us, in her words, to “the other side of Alice’s looking glass, in a kind of absurd, subtle, technicolor transition.”

We’ll continue with a new set of original fiddle tunes by Palaver’s own violist, Elizabeth Moore.

We conclude with Florence Price’s A Minor String Quartet, which incorporates both twentieth-century compositional ideas and African-American vernacular music.

We hope you will join us for this journey beyond the looking glass, as we catch a glimpse of a bold and brilliant future for our craft.

Caroline Shaw: Entracte
Florence Price: Quartet in a minor
