No warhorses need apply for Chatter
Albuquerque's Chatter seems to thrive on programs of unconventional mixings of music.
An example is the Aug. 26 Chatter Cabaret concert. It is serving up music of Carl Maria von Weber, Marc Mellits and Heitor Villa-Lobos.
The Mellits work is titled "Black" for two bass clarinets, said clarinetist James T. Shields.
"It's kind of a relentless, loud, funk aggressive piece. ... It's kind of on the cusp of what you might call indie-classical and more crossover into rock," said Shields, who is Chatter's associate artistic director.
Shields and Andy Brown, who is a member of the Rochester Philharmonic, play "Black." Mellits is a contemporary composer.
Also on the program is von Weber's Clarinet Quintet in B-flat major. He composed the quintet about 200 years ago.
"It's the third of the three great clarinet quintets," Shields said.
"The others are by (Johannes) Brahms and (W.A.) Mozart. The Weber is one I've performed least often. It's a great piece. Compared to the Brahms and the Mozart, it's more of a virtuosic feat for me to pull it off. ... It's a little erratic with quick change of moods." Performing it with Shields are cellist James Holland, violinists Naha Greenholtz and Megan Julyan Holland and violist Justin Pollack.
The third work on the program is Villa-Lobos' Duo for Violin and Viola. Playing it are David Felberg on violin and Justin Pollack on viola.
"It's a real gem," Felberg said. "Villa-Lobos infuses Latin America in its rhythms and its harmonies with a real deep appreciation for traditional Western composition, such as (J.S.) Bach and Mozart."
He believes it is a great addition to the violin-viola repertoire.
Earlier in the same day, Sunday Chatter at the Kosmos will feature works by Igor Stravinsky, Claude Debussy and Arnold Schoenberg.
"That whole concert is centered around 20th-century interpretations of dance music," Shields said.
"The Debussy is a contorted waltz, the Stravinksy is a jump-ragtime in the composer's trickster mode and the Schoenberg is fiendishly difficult to put together. We're rehearsing really hard to make it come off very well."
The Schoenberg is a work for piano, violin, viola, cello, B-flat clarinet, E-flat clarinet and bass clarinet, he said.
The concert starts at 10:30 a.m. The Kosmos is at 1715 Fifth NW. Tickets are $15 general public, $9 for those under 30 and students, $5 for children at the door.
