Welcome to the 2014-15 Season
My Dear Friends,
It is my great pleasure to present our musicians, who will help us open the new, 13th chapter of the Blue Candlelight Music Series. Our six amazing concerts will take youto the fascinating world of beautiful music and will help us open the new, 13th chapter of the Blue Candlelight Music Series. Our six amazing concerts will take you to the fascinating world of beautiful music and will help you to fully immerse yourself into a wonderland of imagination and poetry through the universal language of music.
Our 13th season theme will celebrate the talented, powerful and intellectual creatures of the music world - women composers.
Each concert will present important works written by female composers, who made great impact on the presenters and performers of their time up to present day. So we can all look forward to acquainting ourselves with the likes of Clara Schumann – a towering historical figure, the finest female pianist of her time and the catalyst for the genius of Robert Schumann and Johannes Brahms.
Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel was another glorious talent whose main misfortune lay with her brother’s genius, Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy. I am proud to present a few of her works which prove that her gifts were every bit as great as those of Felix and burst with her unique personality and fire to our 21st century ear.
Our artists are a mix of the familiar with the new, as you know, I love introducing our audiences with the most creative artists possible, and so I know you will help me welcome them to our Blue Candlelight Music Series family. As always, let me hear from you, as our music is your music.
