Chamber Music Society features clarinet on Saturday

By
February 28, 2011 |

Clarinetist Patricia Sands is the principal guest artist at Saturday's Sacramento Chamber Music Society concert.

The Chamber Music Society of Sacramento returns for a concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Congregation Bet Haverim, 1715 Anderson Road.

The principal guest artist will be clarinetist Patricia Shands. She has been a faculty member at the University of the Pacific since 1995, and a member of the Sacramento Philharmonic. She holds a bachelor’s degree in music from the Peabody Conservatory of Music, a master’s degree in music from the University of Southern California and a doctorate in music from the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University.

Shands has performed with the Houston Symphony, the Handel Society Orchestra, the Colorado Philharmonic, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra and the Orquesta Filarmonic de Bogota. Her chamber music experience includes performance affiliations with The Banff Centre, the Concord String Quartet and the Pacific Arts Woodwind Quintet.

Shands will be featured in contemporary American composer Paul Moravec’s lustrous, romantic “Tempest Fantasy,” a quartet scored for clarinet, violin, cello and piano. The piece won the Pulitzer Prize for music in 2004.

According to the composer, “ ‘Tempest Fantasy’ is a musical meditation on various characters, moods, situations and lines of text from my favorite Shakespeare play, ‘The Tempest.’ Rather than trying to depict these elements in programmatic terms, the music simply uses them as points of departure for flights of purely musical fancy.

“The first three movements spring from the nature and selected speeches of the three eponymous individuals. The fourth movement begins from Caliban’s uncharacteristically elegant speech from Act III, scene 2: ‘Be not afeard: the isle is full of noises, Sounds and sweet airs, that give delight, and hurt not.’

“The fifth movement is the most ‘fantastic’ flight of all, elaborating on the numerous musical strands of the previous movements and drawing them all together into a convivial finale.”

Shands also will be featured in the Mozart Clarinet Quintet, a mature work that dates from 1789, two years before the composer’s untimely death at age 35.

“It is an amazing piece,” said William Barbini, artistic director of the Chamber Music Society of Sacramento, and a longtime El Macero resident. “Every time I come back to it, it’s just amazingly great.”

Rounding out the program will be Carl Reinecke’s Sonata for Flute and Piano, featuring flautist Matt Krejci, a longtime member of the University of the Pacific faculty, and a member of the Sacramento Philharmonic, with pianist Dimitry Cogan.

Reinecke was born in 1824 in a town called Altona that was at that under Danish administration, but soon became part of Germany. His Flute Sonata — also known as the “Sonata Undine,” dating from 1882 — is generally considered Reinecke’s best-known work.

Reinecke was an influential teacher over several decades; several of his students became important composers from various countries, including the Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg, Czech composer Leoš Janáček, Spanish composer Isaac Albéniz and German composer Max Bruch, among others. Reinecke died in 1910.

Saturday’s Davis concert by the Chamber Music Society will be repeated at 7:30 p.m. Sunday in the Music Recital Hall at Sacramento State University.

Tickets for either performance will be available at the door: $28 general, $22 for seniors and $12 children or students with ID. For more information, visit  http://www.cmssacto.org or call (916) 443-2908.
