Fine Arts Chamber Players Bancroft Family Concert: Fragments of the Past and Present
Fine Arts Chamber Players presents Fragments of the Past and Present, the next free Bancroft Family Concert. This program explores the interconnectedness of music from the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries.
The afternoon’s performers are: Nathan Olson, Co-Concertmaster of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra; Jennifer Humphreys, cello, DSO; Theodore Soluri, principal bassoon, DSO; Christopher Deane, principal percussion with the Las Colinas Symphony Orchestra; Douglas Howard, principal percussion and assistant principal timpani, DSO; Drew Lang, percussion, Dallas Wind Symphony; and Anastasia Markina, piano.
The program includes Ms. Markina performing Johann Sebastian Bach’s Prelude and Fugue No. 1 in C major (the first prelude and fugue by Bach) and answering it with Dmitri Shostakovich’s Prelude and Fugue in D minor (his last prelude and fugue). Mr. Solari and Ms. Humphreys partner for Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Sonata for bassoon and cello Kv292. The string players, percussionists, and pianist join onstage for a chamber arrangement of Shostakovich’s Symphony N. 15, op 141a, Movement I (Allegretto).
