Caramoor’s Jazz Festival celebrates 20th season

By Susan Wolfert

It started with a single performance in 1994, but today the Jazz Festival is an integral part of Caramoor’s annual musical menu, and this summer, celebrates its 20th anniversary. This year’s festival, taking place July 26-28, celebrates the art form, its deep cultural history, and a gathering of talent – iconic and emerging – second to none.

A chance meeting between Caramoor Managing Director Paul Rosenblum and jazz DJ and producer Jim Luce at a kindergarten parents’ breakfast in Manhattan gave rise to a happy, successful, and long-lasting collaboration that first brought jazz to Caramoor.

Every jazz festival at Caramoor since its inception has been produced by Mr. Luce, who believes New York is the center of the jazz world, but performances Read more

Art of the Duo

By William Robin

First rule of Art of the Duo: You do talk about it, but make sure you don’t call it an accompaniment. It’s what every violinist learns in the first week of Juilliard, or any other conservatory for that matter. The pianist is not your backup. The pianist is an equal partner. Each of Beethoven’s 10 sonatas – half of which were performed last summer and the remaining five will be featured June 30 – is, in fact, titled “Sonata for Piano and Violin.” These are no virtuoso-laden concertos, but instead a dialogue where the violin is allowed to gracefully share the stage with the piano.

Before Beethoven’s time, the violin was a mere addition to the piano sonata, an optional part doubling the pianist’s right hand. Building on concepts Mozart developed, Beethoven brought new force to the violin’s role. What’s remarkable about Beethoven’s music is his care for balance; the way he created a powerful drama from the interaction Read more

Highlighting the ‘Communicative Impulse’

The Bel Canto Young Artists are in for a special treat this year. As Caramoor embarks on its most ambitious opera season in history, opera director Will Crutchfield plans to make use of the mentoring program’s artists by expanding their performance opportunities as Caramoor celebrates Verdi’s bicentennial.

About a dozen young singers visit Caramoor every year for six weeks of intensive training in vocal technique, stage movement, and specialized study of the ornamentation that characterizes bel canto singing. In addition to participating in full-scale rehearsals of the summer operas, these emerging artists act as understudies Read more
