Fortepiano Fest (Thursday performance, Bath, ME)

Under the artistic direction of George Bozarth, KEMF is bringing together musicians of national and international renown from Seattle, Boston, and Bath to perform the music of Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, and other classical masters on historic instruments  four 18th-century clarinets, Classical violin and violoncello, Italian harpsichord, and Viennese fortepiano.

NOTE - This concert is also being performed on Friday, August 17th, in the intimate Linden Tree Meeting House of the Phippsburg Congregationalist Church in Phippsburg, ME (see our separate link for this performance: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3463041)


Susanna Ogata on her 1772 Klotz violin and Tamara Friedman on her 1795 Viennese fortepiano offer up a rich feast of solos and duos, including a C. P. E. Bach's Violin Sonata in C minor, Mozart's delightfully virtuosic Variations on "Salve tu Domine," Joseph Haydn's humorous Piano Sonata No. 52 in E-flat major, and Ludwig van Beethoven's masterful Sonata No. 8 for Violin and Fortepiano.

Violinist SUSANNA OGATA enjoys an active performance schedule in greater New England and beyond.  She has been praised for totally convincing, spontaneous and free-flowing playing (The Berkshire Review), her musical sensitivity and fire (Boston Musical Intelligencer), and playing of electrifying energy, awesome technical command, and rollicking dialogue (Arts Fuse Magazine) where her concert appearance was distinguished as the best solo performance of 2016.  Her first recording in a complete set of Beethoven's violin sonatas gained acclaim from the New York Times for elegant readings that are attentive to quicksilver changes in dynamics and articulation. Their performance of the Sonata No. 4 in A minor is darkly playful, their Kreutzer Sonata brilliant and stormy.  The BBC Music Magazine has praised the recording for its "altogether compelling performances" and the music for being "always vividly characterized and further pronounced that "the atmosphere of excitement in both works is very well captured by Susanna Ogata and Ian Watson."  Susanna is a tenured member of the venerable Handel and Haydn Society in Boston, has served on the violin faculty of the Longy School of Music, and was recently appointed as Assistant Concertmaster of the orchestra.  She is a founding member of the Boston Classical Trio, the Copley String Quartet, and the Coriolan String Quartet.

Pianist TAMARA FRIEDMAN, praised for the depth, wit, and humor of her performances (Seattle Times), attended the Oberlin Conservatory and received her master's degree from the Mannes College of Music (NYC). She has collaborated with such artists as Stanley Ritchie, Jaap Schröder, and Max van Egmond, and appears with violinist Elizabeth Blumenstock as Duo Amadeus.  In the Pacific Northwest she has performed on the Seattle Camerata, Allegro Baroque and Beyond, Belle Arte, Early Music Guild, Gallery Concerts, and Mostly Nordic series and for the Governors Chamber Music Festival.  She has been the featured performer in early piano workshops for Pacific Lutheran University (Tacoma, WA) and the Western Early Keyboard Association, and maintains a private studio in Seattle, where she teaches modern piano and fortepiano on the collection of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century keyboard instruments on display at SEKM! -- the Seattle Early Keyboard Museum.  Her summers are spent in Bath, Maine, where she also has a group of historic pianos.
