DePauw Chamber Players
The DePauw Chamber Players, a faculty ensemble, presents a concert as a part of ArtsFest 2012: Art and the Other. Featuring Dan Rizner, violin; Eric Edberg, cello; and May Phang, piano.
Pianist May Phang, violinist Dan Rizner, and cellist Eric Edberg explore "music and the other" with compositions by Robert Schumann (1810-1856), Rebecca Clarke (1886-1979), and Libby Larsen (b. 1950). Schumann suffered from mental illness and in that sense was "the other." He also was an influential critic who wrote with disdain for the "Philistines" ("others" to him) who couldn't comprehend or appreciate what he saw as true art. Rebecca Clarke was marginalized as a "woman" composer, the "other" in a male-dominated classical music culture. Libby Larsen, who came of age during the feminist revolution, is regarded as one of the major classical composers of our time, no longer a "woman composer." For years, many American classical musicians saw popular idioms as a threat and treated them with disdain. Larsen's piece "Three for the Road" is inspired by Boogie-woogie and represents classical music embracing what it once regarded as "the other."
