Madness and Music: From Concert to Cabaret, Santa Cruz Chamber Players
Ivan Rosenblum, concert director and piano; Lori Schulman, soprano;
Kathleen Purcell, flute; Jeff Gallagher, clarinet
A broad, light approach to madness makes for a varied, entertaining program! Featured will be music from a composer, a writer and a performer, whove all been diagnosed with mental illness - Robert Schumann, Sylvia Plath and Glenn Gould.
These pieces will be combined with playful songs of obsessionfood, drink, movies, love, over-zealousnesscomposed by Bach, Bernstein, Noel Coward, William Bolcom, and Queen. Of course no program titled Music and Madness" would be complete without an excerpt from the Mad Scene in Donizettis Lucia di Lammermoor or some version of Ophelias Song. Even more mayhem will ensue in St. Saën's Tarantella for clarinet, flute and pianothe mad dance provoked by a tarantulas bite. And finally, the eccentric Victorian world described in a drug-drenched dream from Alice in Wonderland set to music by David Del TreDici? TOTALLY MAD, you say? Check it out!
