Chopin & Schumann on the Bluff Season Passes

August 28, 2022 3:00 PM

The Mary Pappert School of Music's popular chamber music series returns for a 21st season with the beginning of a two-year-long exploration and celebration of the solo piano and chamber music of Romantic composers Frédéric Chopin and Robert Schumann. Artistic Director David Allen Wehr has invited members of the Duquesne University faculty and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, along with internationally-renowned guest artists for a feast of beautiful melodies and compelling story-telling.

Concert I: Carnaval

August 28, 2022 3:00 PM

Schumann's Carnaval is a foundational work of the Romantic piano repertoire and has been a specialty of guest artist Cynthia Raim. A mosaic of 21 short pieces, it combines musical portraits of real and imagined personalities, clowns from classic Italian commedia dell'arte, swirling dances, and lots of affectionate humor. David Allen Wehr will perform all 21 Chopin Nocturnes over the course of the series, and he begins this journey with three of the most popular and tuneful, along with the dramatic and impetuous Scherzo #3. Raim and Wehr join forces for Chopin's Rondo and Schumann's Canonic Etudes, transcribed by Claude Debussy, a touching and heartfelt tribute to J. S. Bach.

Concert II: Quintet

September 18, 2022 3:00 PM

Schumann created his piano quintet as a gift for his wife, the great pianist Clara Schumann (née Wieck), and his conception of the piano and the string quartet as equal, yet opposing bodies, set the stage for the great quintets of Brahms, Dvoák, and Franck to come. Its brilliance, freshness, and inspiration have never faded with familiarity, although live performances are not easy to come by. Members of Duquesnes string faculty and David Allen Wehr team up for this perennial favorite. Wehr offers a bouquet of some of Chopins most elegant and personal works, culminating in the virtuosic energy of the Heroic Polonaise, with its powerful expression of Polish patriotism in the face of oppression.

Concert III: A Poet's Love

January 08, 2023 3:00 PM

International vocal star Randall Scarlata returns to Pittsburgh to make his Bluff Series debut in Schumanns beloved song cycle Dichterliebe (A Poets Love), settings of poetry by German Romantic Heinrich Heine, partnered by German lieder expert Ben Binder. The composers Fairy Tale Pictures are one of his very last works, and their beauty and tunefulness make their neglect difficult to understand. David Allen Wehr joins longtime collaborators Marylène Gingras-Roy and Ron Samuels in exploring this little-known corner of Schumanns chamber music. Wehr continues his survey of Chopin with two of the most perfect Nocturnes and the dramatic and fiery Polonaise in F-Sharp Minor.

Concert IV: David's League

January 29, 2023 3:00 PM

Australian cellist Clancy Newman returns to the PNC Recital Hall after his sensational debut last year to perform Chopins elegiac Sonata for Cello and Piano with David Allen Wehr. Besides the piano, the cello was Chopins favorite instrument, and the composer revels in the instruments rich sonorities, finding a constant stream of imaginative ways to combine and contrast the cello with the piano. Schumann created the imaginary League of David as a vehicle to oppose the musical Philistines who fought acceptance of the new and innovative ideas espoused by Schumann and his cohort of young firebrands. The musical result is a suite of 18 short and inspired piano pieces displaying the inward and extroverted sides of the composers personality and also, incidentally, a musical love letter to Clara.
