Acclaimed chamber music ensemble Camerata Pacifica returns in February with an eclectic program that mixes the Viennese tradition with two important American works. Bookended by early Beethoven (the Sonata for Cello and Piano in G minor, Op. 5, No. 2) and late Brahms (the Clarinet Trio in A minor, Op. 114), the program also includes principal pianist Warren Jones performing Mozart’s poignant late work for solo piano, the Adagio in B minor, K 540.
Into this Viennese mix come two American works: Steve Reich’s now-canonic New York Counterpoint, performed by principal clarinetist José Franch-Ballester, and Carl Vine’s Inner World, played by principal cellist Ani Aznavoorian. Both pieces call for the solo performer to interact with prerecorded sound, creating a kind of chamber ensemble with one player; in New York Counterpoint, this is taken to unusual lengths, as the soloist creates the tracks as well, and thus plays live against ten versions of him- or herself.
