LADYSLIPPER ENSEMBLE PRESENTS CLASSICAL CABARET

Friday, October 10, 2014, 10:00 PM - 12:00 AM


Sahar Hassan, mezzo-soprano
Claudia Chen, piano • Helen Chang, violin Arek Tesarczyk, cello • Chris Brown, bass
Ladyslipper Ensemble presents a program of music from the classical cabaret era of the 1930’s. Selections will include Gershwin's Three Preludes for violin and piano by Jascha Heifetz, as well as two arias and a violin transcription from Porgy and Bess, which was an inspiration for Kurt Weill's compositions after he moved from Germany to New York.
A charming piece by Rossini for cello and bass, and two pieces for cello and piano by Manuel de Falla and Ástor Piazzolla display the virtuosity and soulful qualities of the two lower stringed instruments. The Spanish Flamenco influence as heard in the de Falla will also be featured in Almería by Isaac Albeniz for solo piano. The Ensemble will also perform Youkali by Weill, and Tango Notturno, by his contemporary Hans-Otto Borgmann.
