Following his stupendous solo Bach performance last season, Christian Tetzlaff returns to the DACAMERA stage in an ensemble bringing him together with two of his favorite chamber music collaborators. The dynamic sibling duo of Tanja and Christian Tetzlaff is joined by pianist Kiveli Dörken, who is rapidly making a name for herself in Europe as both soloist and chamber musician. This impressive ensemble brings their remarkable talents to two chamber music masterpieces: Schubert majestic B-flat Trio and Tchaikovsky’s virtuosic, folk-inspired gem.
The Houston Chamber Choir joins the new instrumental group Loop38 in the regional premiere of Mass for the Endangered by young American composer Sara Kirkland-Snider. A celebration, and an elegy, for the natural world, this extraordinary work is an appeal for greater awareness, urgency, and action. At once jubilant and reverent, Mass for the Endangered is a meditation on all that nature has to offer and what they can offer in return.
