MMPAF Concert American Voices of the Early 20th Century

AMERICAN VOICES OF THE EARLY 20TH CENTURY
in the Chapel
Sunday, May 5, 2019 at 2:30 pm

This program pays tribute to Scott Joplin, the master of ragtime, and the modernist Charles Ives. Joplin’s Bethena (1904) livens the classical waltz with the spirit of ragtime, paying poignant tribute to his first love, Freddie, who died just ten weeks after their wedding. Ives’s Concord Sonata (1911) weaves together popular music from the Civil War, along with quotes from Beethoven, Wagner, and Debussy.

“There is genuine majesty in the Concord Sonata, and nobody else, in my experience, has brought it out so convincingly as Nonken.” (Washington Post)

Marilyn Nonken, as “one of the greatest interpreters of new music” (American Record Guide) has been acclaimed for performances of the complete piano music of Schoenberg, Boulez, and Murail, as well as works by composers associated with ultramodernism, the New York School, the New Complexity, and spectral music.

Marilyn Nonken, piano

$25 general admission; $15 students/seniors
