Ensemble Tremblay is 11 outstanding musicians and Monteux alumni traveling to perform at the Mozart at Monteux Festival in Hancock, ME.
Directed by Allison Kiger, The Ensemble Tremblay is a chamber ensemble of 11 outstanding classical musicians presenting the Mozart at Monteux festival in Hancock, ME, August 1-8, 2012
Ensemble Tremblay was founded by alumni of the Pierre Monteux School for Conductors and Orchestra Musicians as a tribute to their time at the School, through the performance of chamber music with other alumni and outstanding colleagues.
The Mozart at Monteux Festival is in its 7th Season. The artistic goal of Director, Allison Kiger, is to choose repertoire and present concerts comprised of the staples of the chamber music literature by Mozart, combined with creative thematic programming, including the music of living composers.
For 2012, Allison Kiger has designed a themed concert of music by Claude Debussy and its affect on famed British film composer, Sir Richard Rodney Bennett. Born in 1936, Sir Bennett is renowned for his work in all styles, from composing for films such as Four Weddings and a Funeral and Murder on the Orient Express, to arranging Jazz and Broadway scores, and extensive music for the concert hall.
Debussy's landmark haunting work for solo flute, "Syrinx" (1912), made such an impression on Bennett that he wrote four more "After Syrinx" pieces, to be performed after Debussy's piece. We will perform three: After Syrinx for Oboe and Piano, Sonata after Syrinx for Flute, Viola and Harp (the same instrumentation at Debussy's final chamber work), and Tango After Syrinx for solo piano. The concert will end with Debussy's final chamber work, the Sonata for Flute, Viola, and Harp.
Our two other concerts will feature a nod to composer Jean Francaix, plenty of chamber music for oboe, clarinet, and strings by Mozart, piano music by Chopin, and chamber music by the already infamous contemporary composer Oswaldo Golijov.
WHERE YOUR MONEY GOES: Funds raised from this campaign will go towards travel compensation for the musicians to and from Hancock, ME, and towards the purchase of sheet music.
