2019 Lake Champlain Chamber Music Festival: GROUNDBREAKERS

: Music at the Turning Point
with Ara Guzelimian, guest speaker

The history of music has been marked by milestone works of electrifying innovation as composers from Monteverdi to Beethoven to Wagner have defied past traditions to create startling new creative paths. We explore how these musical starbursts came to be and how they shaped what followed in this talk illustrated generously with performances by Festival musicians.

2:00 pm The Grosse Fuge: Joyride in a Time Machine
Led by Nicholas Kitchen with the Borromeo String Quartet

Listeners will be taken into the "gearbox" of the four sections that make up the Grosse Fuge before hearing a performance of the whole work. One of Beethoven's most audacious creations, the Grosse Fuge shocked listeners and players right from the moment of its creation and has inspired and challenged composers in every generation up to the present.
