Chameleon Arts Ensemble resumes its popular Up Close series with a classic recital featuring violinist Robyn Bollinger and pianist Elizabeth Schumann in a program of “rule breakers and statement makers.” Beethoven’s dramatic Sonata No. 7 in c minor, Op. 30, No. 2 and Shostakovich’s austere and muscular Sonata, Op. 134 are undisputed the jewels of the repertoire. Arvo Pärt’s Fratres is an early example of his tintinnabuli style of composition. Finally, Erik Satie’s Choses vues à droite et à gauche (sans lunettes), or Things seen left to right (without glasses), is a satirical reinvention of Baroque musical forms. The Boston Musical Intelligencer noted Ms. Bollinger’s “outgoing play electrified the air.” The Washington Post described Ms. Schumann as “deft, relentless, and devastatingly good.”
The performance will take place in Mary Norton Hall at Old South Church, transformed into an intimate cabaret setting with table seating and refreshments, and the concert will be hosted by Artistic Director Deborah Boldin.
