About the Event
Musica Cordis, Op. 3 - music for strings by Franz Schubert, Johan Sebastian Bach, James Lee III, Jeffrey Mumford, Manuel Ponce, Daniel Bernard Roumain, and Akshaya Tucker.
Sheffield Chamber Players designed Musica Cordis to evolve and change over time—the music that speaks to us today may give way to something completely different in the next iteration. Each performance, we'll be offering the pieces that offer us comfort, strength, and joy during this time.
In this 3rd iteration of Musica Cordis, Sasha, Alex, and Leo come together as a string trio for the first time since the pandemic to get reacquainted with old favorites, as well as explore little known gems. Schubert's single movement string trio is a masterwork of subtlety, with longing and joy delicately balanced in perfect equilibrium. On the other hand, Daniel Bernard Romaine's Hip-Hop Etudes take no prisoners with their driving rhythms. Bach's brilliant E-major Prelude for violin solo forms yet another polar opposite when coupled with Jeffrey Mumford's lamenting solo viola masterwork Revisiting variazioni elegiaci. In Breathing Sunlight we dive into tantalizing harmonies inspired by Indian music, written by up-and-coming Massachusetts native Akshaya Tucker. Finally, a rarely-heard string trio by Manuel Ponce rounds out the program with its indulgently rich harmonies and dazzling finale.
