Santa Fe 2011 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, St Francis Auditorium, Santa Fe, NM. Very good FM broadcast on April 1, 2011.

Thanks to the original taper and uploader; and to mdshrk1 for keeping the show alive at The Traders’ Den.

Program Notes:

The first is a delicious confection. Clarinetist Michael Rusinek and bassoonist Nancy Goeres joined forces with pianist and festival artistic director Marc Neikrug to perform Mendelssohn’s pleasing Concert Piece for Clarinet, Bassoon & Piano No. 1 in F Minor, Op. 113. Mendelssohn whimsically gave this piece the saporific nickname, ‘The Battle of Prague: a Great Duet for Noodles and Cream Pastry’ when he wrote it for his friends, the father-and-son clarinet virtuosi, Heinrich and Carl Baermann. The story goes that Carl employed a bit of culinary bribery to persuade the then-23-year-old Mendelssohn to fulfill a long-awaited commission. And so it was in Berlin in December of 1832 that Carl prepared yeast dumplings and cream puffs while Mendelssohn composed the music.

The other piece featured on this program is one of the biggest and best known works in the chamber repertoire. Cellist Lynn Harrell, violinist Benny Kim, and pianist Yuja Wang played Beethoven’s massive Piano Trio in B-flat Major, Op. 97, the one dedicated to Beethoven’s friend and patron, the Archduke Rudolph.
