Movements of the Heart

Join the Houston New Arts Movement for our second exploration of Light and Shadows this season: “Movements of the Heart.”  The composers in this concert each bring to life an example of some of our most basic and universal desires: to sing, to fall in love, to dance, to ponder, and to dream.

This concert will feature Schumann’s “Fantasiestucke, Op. 73” for Cello and Piano, a lyrical, playful, and passionate work.  “Schumann’s wild contrasts between brooding passion and playful ecstasy are powerfully expressed in these short but exceedingly romantic pieces. Schumann is a master of creating musical character and story.”  says founder and pianist Adam Vincent Clay, who will accompany Cony Ruiz, cellist, on this work.  

Continuing in the lyrical, and harmonically daring vein of Schumann, violinists Laura Cividino and Luis Ramirez will perform the Czech composer Bohuslav Martinu’s Three Madrigals.  Living nearly a century later than Robert Schumann, Martinu’s harmonic language is much more daring, and the Madrigals are full of wild virtuosic violin playing and flare, as well as reflective slow movements.

The evening will conclude with Dvorak’s great Piano Quintet No. 2 in A Major.  Full of lyrical writing, transformation, melancholy, virtuosity, aggression, and excitement, the work is epic in every sense of the way.  Lasting 40 minutes, cast in 4 movements, the piece explores dance rhythms throughout, and majestically balances the five instruments to create a bold and memorable work.

Refreshments will be served at the post-concert artists’ reception, at which we look forward to getting a chance to visit with you all.

Come hear compositional masters of Czech, French, American, and Argentinian music. Join musicians, Adam Vincent Clay (pianist, and founder), Rachel McCarthy Clay (pianist), violinists Laura Cividino and Luis Ramirez as we bring to life Dvorak’s great Piano Quintet in A Major, Op. 81. “Dvorak’s Piano Quintet is full of Czech dances rhythms, sweeping romantic gestures, gorgeous melodies, passages of virtuosity, motoric, rhythmic drive… basically everything you could ask for in a large chamber work.” says founder, Adam Vincent Clay.  Soak in the beautiful and intense sounds of William Bolcom’s ragtime music for piano. Savor the intricacies of music by Ravel, once called the “Swiss watchmaker” by Stravinsky.
