Invitation to Enchantment

Greetings all, as COVID-19 has progressed rapidly in the past few days, we are postponing the opening of our 2020 season until further notice.

We all want to bring you this beautiful music we have been preparing for months, but most of all we want you all to be safe and well.  Follow us on our Social Media platforms for the latest updates on rescheduled concerts.  If you’ve purchased a ticket just send us an email an we will take care of you.

We thank you for your support!  Stay healthy and well.

Join HNAM in an evening of exquisite music from French composers.  The first concert of our 2020 season explores some beloved French compositions and some not-so-often performed gems.

Come hear the soaring and passionate melodies of Cesar Franck, and the driving rhythms of Francis Poulenc’s Violin Sonata (which was dedicated to Spanish poet Federico Lorca).  Experience the peaceful and flowing works of Erik Satie as they transport you into the pure sound of the piano, and let Ravel’s mastery of compositional form and resonance of the piano transport you into his impressionistic landscapes.  Explore the grand epic of lesser-known master Léon Boëllmann’s Sonata for Cello and Piano in A minor: a work of technical and emotional virtuosity in equal measure for cellist and pianist.

“Léon Boëllmann’s final work is a masterpiece of technical and emotional writing for the cello and piano.” says Adam Vincent Clay. “It takes wonderful advantage of the sonorities of both instruments in the romantic style, and deserves to be performed more often.”

Join us after the event for a reception of French food, artwork, and lively conversation.

Join the Houston New Arts Movement for a night of music, food, and artwork that celebrates the various cultures of the world, and celebrates our home city of Houston: one of the most culturally and ethnically diverse cities in the nation.
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.
HNAM continues its season of Reflections, bringing back repertoire they have performed in previous seasons as well as new repertoire that explores the same themes as those seasons.
