Program: We welcome back our good friends cellist Käthe Jarka and pianist Marija Stroke as they join festival newcomer, violinist Kyu-Young Kim. Artistic Director and Principal Violin of The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, Kyu-Young Kim is one of the most versatile and accomplished musicians of his generation. Hailed by the Chicago Tribune for his “flawless musical and technical command,” Kim has toured throughout North America, Europe and Asia, performing in such prestigious venues as Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, the Seoul Arts Center, the Palais des Beaux Arts (Brussels) and the Beethoven-Haus (Bonn).
There are various types of ghosts haunting the three works on this program: in Saariaho’s Light and Matter, the sonic illusion of refracted light and less-than-solid objects has a spectral quality; the Haydn trio slow movement is haunted by the ghost of Bach; and Beethoven’s “Ghost Trio” got its appropriate nickname from the tense, chilling, and mysterious slow movement, which may have been related to sketches he made for a never-realized opera on Macbeth. This event includes a gourmet wine reception.
