MUSICIANS OF THE VALLEY OF THE MOON FESTIVAL, Tanya Tomkins & Eric Zivian Directors

An Die Musik—the Narrative Power of Schubert and Schumann

During the Romantic period, no concert was considered complete without a song. The Valley of the Moon Music Festival will present a typical 19th-century salon concert, beginning with Schubert’s turbulent Quartettsatz – a masterpiece in one compact movement. The concert will continue with some of Schubert and Schumann’s most beautiful lieder performed by renowned tenor Nick Phan, and end with Schumann’s great Piano Quintet with its triumphant double fugue. The audience will experience this intimate and psychologically stirring music on the instruments for which it was written, including natural horn and a Viennese fortepiano from 1841. Featured artists include: Nicholas Phan, tenor; Sadie Glass, natural horn; Monica Huggett, violin; Carla Moore, violin; Rachell Wong, violin; Toma Iliev (Apprentice Laureate), viola; Cynthia Black, viola; Tanya Tomkins, cello; and Eric Zivian, fortepiano
