A noted polymath, British-born Stephen Hough is distinguished as one of the greatest classical pianists of our time. While also mastering writing, painting, and composing, he has released over 50 albums and received a multitude of awards including four Grammy-award nominations, eight Gramophone awards, and the prestigious Diapason d’Or de l’Année. He was the first classical musician to win a MacArthur grant and The Guardian praised him for displaying “the most perfect piano playing conceivable.” In this program including one of his own compositions, Stephen Hough combines greatly lauded and powerful works for a passioned and skilled performance.

“Every note and line he played gave the impression of purpose, that Hough had found musical insight and personal meaning in every moment of the score. His approach was not just intellectual but emotional, with uncommon freshness and fire.” — New York Classical Review

A classically trained pianist and composer, Aaron Diehl has made an indelible mark on the jazz world over the last 15 years. He has established himself as one of the preeminent interpreters of the Great American Songbook with his trio and as musical director and arranger for the remarkable vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant, with whom he’s appeared at Caramoor. In fact, he actually made one of his first solo appearances at Caramoor in 2008, a concert which was recorded and resulted in his first album, “Live at Caramoor.” His “melodic precision, harmonic erudition, and elegant restraint” (The New York Times) will be on display as he explores new interpretations of jazz standards and his own works.

“It’s hard to imagine that Gershwin would not have been impressed. The audience was: It gave Mr. Diehl an enthusiastic ovation. He must be invited back.” — The New York Times

This all-female vocal trio brings to Caramoor the wondrous sounds of medieval chant and polyphony. Join us for a holiday program of music from the British Isles, featuring beloved English medieval and Renaissance carols, including There is No Rose, A Virgin Unspotted, and Green Groweth the Holly (attributed to Henry VIII). Also included are new arrangements of some old favorites, including In the Bleak Midwinter, O Little Town of Bethlehem, and The Holly and the Ivy. The program will include new settings of medieval texts, including a commission by acclaimed British composer Andrew Lovett, Winter Wakeneth, as well as the premiere of a setting by Jacqueline Horner-Kwiatek of the beloved Medieval poem There is no Rose, sung in Sean Nos style to the tune of an ancient Irish folk-ballad, The Lamentations of Deidre. The Rosen House, splendidly decorated for the holidays, will be open for self-guided tours between the two performances.

“(they) sang exquisitely together, their voices so tightly intertwined that they often sounded as one clear strand…..an evening of gloriously clear voices singing exquisitely wrought music spanning centuries.” — Steven Pisano, Feastofmusic.com

First introduced to Caramoor audiences in 2018’s Atalanta, soprano Sherezade Panthaki is an acknowledged star in the early-music world. With a lush and commanding voice, she remains “wonderfully agile, riding her rapid vibrato up and down passagework and trills with admirable fluency” (The Wall Street Journal). In this program featuring both instrumental and vocal pieces, Panthaki is joined by some of the most celebrated early music players on the East Coast, performing as The Helicon Ensemble. Recognized by The New York Times as “an important early music organization,” Helicon seeks to explore period chamber music at a high level.

“Panthaki’s voice is a force of nature and quite exceptional, as indeed is her remarkably accurate tuning and the evident ease with which she tossed off even the most difficult passages.”
— Kenneth DeLong, Calgary Herald
