Alessandro and Domenico — father and son — produced an endless stream of masterpieces in miniature. The prolific Alessandro Scarlatti formed important links between the early Baroque Italian vocal styles and the classical school, and his son Domenico was one of the most admired musicians of the period. Young bel canto voices interpret their legacy in this special concert series, bringing the Scarlattis’ amazing works to life.

About Bel Canto Young Artists Program:

Each year, about a dozen young singers participate in six-to-eight weeks of intensive training in vocal technique and specialized study of the ornamentation that characterizes bel canto singing. Selected by Opera Director Will Crutchfield to participate in the mentoring program, the singers study the repertoire and participate in full scale rehearsals of the summer operas presented at Caramoor, act as understudies to the principal roles, are cast in some of the supporting opera roles, and perform in afternoon recitals that precede the opera performances. Additionally, the young artists showcase their talents in Summer Music Festival concerts such as this one. Many graduates of our Bel Canto mentoring program have gone from the Caramoor stage to the world stage. 

 

Music from Copland House returns to Caramoor with thereminist Carolina Eyck to perform works by Copland, Debussy, Martinu, Rózsa, and Shostakovich which explore the border between real and surreal. Caramoor’s founder, Lucie Bigelow Rosen (1890-1968), was a student and patron of Leon Theremin and performed throughout Europe and in concert halls in New York City and throughout the Northeast. We are delighted to celebrate traditions new and old through Copland House’s mission of bringing new works and collaborations to our audiences.

Debussy Sonata for Cello and Piano
Rózsa Spellbound Concerto for Theremin, Oboe, Piano, and String Quartet
Shostakovich Trio No. 2 in E Minor for Violin, Cello, and Piano, Op. 67
Martinu
Fantaisie for Theremin, Oboe, Piano and String Quartet
Copland Sextet for Clarinet, Piano and String Quartet

“Music from Copland House is our paramount keeper of Copland’s flame.”

Will Crutchfield, Caramoor’s Director of Opera, comments:

French operas of Italian masters, cont’d: La Favorite continues Caramoor’s track record of reviving the Parisian grand operas of the Italian masters.  Rossini’s Guillaume Tell in 2011 won recognition in the national and international press for its revelation the composer’s final masterwork for the stage; Verdi’s Les vêpres siciliennes and Don Carlos followed to similar acclaim in 2013, and now it is Donizetti’s turn.   La Favorite was the second of the four works he completed for the Paris Opera, and was such a success that it was given there every single season from 1840 to 1894, with occasional revivals up to 1918.  But after that the opera circulated mostly in a heavily censored Italian translation and the world lost sight of Donizetti’s original.

Three mainstays of the acoustic, folk and roots music world take their individual talents and harmonize together in this one-of-a-kind band. Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz and Aoife O’Donovan, each accomplished solo artists in their own right, play sets of each other’s songs, cover songs and traditional songs in this dynamic performance.

“O’Donovan adds the sultry sweetness, Watkins brings the jazz, and Jarosz keeps a steady, heartfelt keel.” – Songlines (UK)

Sara Watkins, a singer-songwriter and fiddler from California, made her debut in 1989 as founding member of the progressive bluegrass group Nickel Creek. In addition to singing and playing fiddle, she is adept at the ukulele, guitar, and played percussion while touring with The Decemberists.

Sarah Jarosz is a multi-Grammy nominated singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who hails from just outside of Austin, TX and makes her home in New York City. Jarosz, who fits comfortably where contemporary folk, Americana and roots music intersect, has long been embraced for the depth and maturity of her songwriting, her pure and nuanced vocals, and her instrumental mastery – switching between octave mandolin, banjo, guitar and mandolin as the songs dictate.

Boston-born Aoife O’Donovan is known for her ethereal vocals and substantive songwriting. After graduating from New England Conservatory, O’Donovan hit the road as the lead singer and principal songwriter/song-finder of Crooked Still, which grew into one of the world’s most acclaimed progressive string groups over the ensuing decade. She has garnered the attention of some of the most eminent names in music and collaborated with the likes of Alison Krauss to Dave Douglas.

“I’m really excited about this trio because we each do our own thing and we each do it differently, so I’m looking forward to discovering all of the unique possibilities that come with combining our individual voices,” – Sarah Jarosz

The next generation of phenomenal artists is only a debut recital away. Let us introduce you…

As a two-time participant in our Evnin Rising Stars mentoring program for classical string musicians, violinist Alexi Kenney honed his distinctive poise and thoughtful repertoire, stoking the creative fire that would lead him to a win at the 2013 Concert Artists Guild Victor Elmaleh Competition at the tender age of nineteen. Kenney attends the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, where he studies with exceptional musicians such as Miriam Fried and Donald Weilerstein.

A top prize winner at the Los Angeles Liszt Competition, International Keyboard Festival in New York, and Tel-Hai International Master Classes, Renana Gutman has performed with orchestras including Jerusalem Symphony, Haifa Symphony, Belgian “I Fiamminghi”, and the Mannes College Orchestra. Gutman spent summers at the Marlboro and Ravinia Music Festivals where she collaborated with Richard Goode, Mitsuko Uchida, members of the Guarneri Quartet, and clarinetist Anthony McGill. Much affiliated with vocalists, she has performed with Lincoln Center soprano Susan Naruki, and mezzo-soprano and Caramoor Opera favorite Tamara Mumford.
