Wind music to blow away the winter

Third Chair Chamber Players is ending its 2009–2010 regular season with a concert featuring the TCCP winds in three unique woodwind quintets.

Ottorino Respighi, best known for his lush tone poems (such as “The Pines of Rome”), set his orchestral skills to a lovely romantic two-movement vignette. Donald Draganski, a Chicago native, highlights the clarinet and piccolo with his settings of Yiddish folk melodies. Alexander Tcherepnin's quintet is a charming three-movement work that reflects his Russian heritage and shows the influence of Martinu.

Also on the program: a couple of new and innovative works by American composers. Legendary jazz pianist Chick Corea delved into the classical music genre with his trio for flute, bassoon and piano. Composer Justin Rubin's Bagatelles for bassoon and marimba came to our attention through his colleague at the University of Minnesota in Duluth, TCCP bassoonist Jeff Campbell.

The evening closes with a premiere of a new work by one of our favorite composers, Tristan Fuentes. His "Dreams" includes reminiscenses of earlier works "Gretchen" and "Pan Am," both performed by TCCP.


TCCP sound enhanced by new acoustical shell

NET's Studio One is a great concert venue, but the sound hasn't been quite the same as our previous concerts at The Loft at the Mill. For our January concert we brought in an acoustical shell, on loan from Nebraska Wesleyan University. Musicians and audience members noticed the difference, and now TCCP has purchased a shell of its own. The new shell will help turn what is already an excellent recording space into an even greater performing space for TCCP.

NET has been a wonderful location for this year's TCCP concerts—its beautiful lobby is perfect for our intermission and after-concert hors d’oeuvres, and you can't beat the parking. NET is located at 1800 N. 33rd in Lincoln, just two blocks north of 33rd and Holdrege. If you haven't been there yet, join us in April and see what the excitement is all about!

TCCP returns to Cambridge this summer

TCCP's year doesn't end with the April concert. For the last four years we have traveled west to Cambridge for Concerts on the Creek, our summer outreach program. This year we have two great programs planned: “Art of the Cello” on June 26, and “A Little Harp, A Little Percussion” on July 31.

Concerts on the Creek is a chamber music experience held twice each summer at the home of Dick Shoemaker and Becky Van de Bogart in Cambridge, Nebraska. It includes an indoor concert along with light dinner and beverages served on the deck overlooking the scenic Republican River valley, with gourmet food provided by local chefs.
