"Tastes of Home" food & wine Event
For our 2017-2018 season, The Musical Offering presents music from central Europe, filled with warmth, texture, and distinctive tastes of the folk cultures that nurtured their creation.
Featuring composers from Bohemia, Poland, Germany, Austria, Hungary, and Moravia, these works reflect sophisticated style as well as ties to their beloved homelands. Join us as we explore well known and less-familiar composers and celebrate their roots in the heart of Europe.
ANNUAL FOOD AND WINE EVENT
TASTES OF HOME
FEBRUARY 11, 2018
The annual food and wine concert will feature three works that weave dances into their character. We open with the exciting Polonaise for Cello and Piano by Chopin, a proud folk dance from his Polish homeland. We pair it with the Divertissement for Oboe, Clarinet, and Bassoon by cosmopolitan Czech composer Erwin Schulhoff. This trio, true to jazz and American influences in Europe at the time, features a Charleston, a waltz called Florida, and a last movement full of folk dance rhythm. Finally, we present the Nonet by German composer Louis Spohr, a gorgeous and virtuosic piece on the cusp of German Classical and Romantic styles, featuring our wind and string players in equal measure. Join us for our fifth annual concert of glorious music intermingled with food, wine, and lively conversation!
Introduction and Polonaise Brillante, op. 3
