Chamber Music at the Scarab Club will open its 17th season on October 19th upstairs in the lounge gallery of the Scarab Club, with a program that has quite an eclectic range of music!
The evenings performance will take place in the lounge gallery because the DUBOIS Piano Trio will showcase the historic Pleyel piano that was recently donated to the Scarab Club. It is a beautiful instrument built around 1870 and is particularly well suited to a performance of this work. The piano has a gentle, clear tone that blends extremely well with strings. Theodore DUBOIS (1837-1924) was a French composer, organist and teacher. He was the director of the Paris Conservatoire from 1896 until 1905. His Piano Trio No. 1 was dedicated to Camille Saint-Saens, who also played the piano part for its first performance. The trio is beautifully written, lyrical and warm.
The members of the talented and energetic accordian and clarinet duo, ACCLARION, live in Windsor and perform repertoire that includes arrangements of classical masterpieces, sultry tangos, folk tunes and original compositions. These musicians, who also happen to be husband and wife, are dedicated performers, composers and educators. Accordionist David Carovillano wrote Bach to the Future especially for this performance. It features all five musicians on this concert: skillfully and playfully combining the piano trio and the accordion/clarinet duo!
As always each piece will be introduced by one of the musicians and the performance will be followed by a delicious and friendly reception.
