At tonights concert at Fairmount Temple Auditorium, Concertante will perform Lowell Liebermanns Second Chamber Concerto, which Concertante commissioned as part of its ongoing One Plus Five new-music project. Wang chose Liebermann to write the piece and plays a prominent part in its performance. I feel very comfortable with his music, says Wang. Its almost a matter of chemistry. His music is very lyrical and melodic. It speaks to me and suits my style of playing.
Beware: Its not a very happy piece. Liebermann composed it while mourning the loss of a friend. The concerto is dark and somber, says Wang. Sorta like its companion piece on tonights program -- Erwin Schulhoffs brooding String Sextet. Fortunately, its not all heavy. The final work, Brahms B-Flat Major Sextet, is as radiant and welcoming as they come. Says Wang: You wont find another program more contrasted than this.
