North Eastham, Massachusetts, October 9, 2012— Coming off of a record-breaking summer season, the Cape Cod Chamber Music Festival will sponsor a special concert of The Israeli Chamber Project, on Sunday, October 21, at 4 p.m., at the First Congregational Church in Wellfleet.
“We are delighted to introduce this outstanding young ensemble to Cape Cod,” said Elaine Lipton, the Festival’s executive director. “Having already gained a devoted following throughout Israel and in New York City during its brief history, we are confident that The Israeli Chamber Project’s Wellfleet performance will both excite local audiences and broaden its geographic appeal.”
Founded in 2008, The Israeli Chamber Project has garnered rave reviews from critics and established itself as a major artistic force on Israel’s vibrant cultural scene, capped by its winning of the 2011 Israeli Ministry of Culture Oustanding Ensemble Award. Recognized for its passionate musicianship and creative programming, the ensemble is also dedicated to fostering musical outreach and education in both metropolitan centers and remote towns, as well as supporting emerging Israeli composers by commissioning new works.
The Wellfleet program will feature:
Bruch: Selections from Eight Pieces for Clarinet, Cello, and Piano, Op. 83
Ravel: Sonatine (arranged for Clarinet, Cello, and Harp)
Gilad Cohen: Trio for a Spry Clarinet, Weeping Cello, and Ruminating Harp (ICP Commission)
Schumann: Fantasiestucke for Cello and Piano, Op. 73
Brahms: Trio for Clarinet, Cello, and Piano in A minor, Op. 114
