9/20: CIM Faculty Recital

Posted By on Thu, Sep 17, 2009 at 8:00 AM

Born in Switzerland, composer Ernest Bloch was 36 years old when he first came to the U.S. and 40 when he became the first music director of the Cleveland Institute of Music in 1920. During the five years he held the job, he wrote mostly piano and small ensemble music in the Romantic style, often drawing on Jewish culture and evoking pastoral moods with titles like “In the Mountains” or “Voices in the Sea.” CIM marks the 50th anniversary of Bloch’s death with a faculty recital by pianist Joela Jones, violinist Peter Otto and cellist Richard Weiss. They’ll perform a couple of works Bloch wrote when he was in Cleveland, including Three Nocturnes for Piano, Violin and Cello, and Sonata No. 1 for Violin and Piano. Also on the program is Franz Schubert’s Piano Trio in B-flat major. Showtime is at 4 p.m. at CIM’s Mixon Hall (11021 East Blvd., 216.791.5000). Admission is free, but you need a seating pass. — Michael Gill
