Kattenburg, Schumann, and Brahms at Bowdoin

Kattenburg, Schumann, and Brahms at Bowdoin

  • Studzinski Recital Hall, Bowdoin College (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Tonight presents a rare opportunity to hear the recently discovered work of Dick Kattenburg. Tragically murdered at Auschwitz at the age of 24, Kattenburg was scarcely remembered until a decade ago, when his musical legacy, including his vibrant, jazzy Quartet, was discovered in a relative’s attic. Ani Schnarch interprets Schumann’s densely textured Violin Sonata, the first of two completed in 1851. Brahms, in turn, evokes his tormented love for Clara Schumann in his Piano Quartet in C Minor, quoting in the first movement the ‘Clara theme’ from Schumann’s Bunte Blätter.

DICK KATTENBURG
Quartet
Leo Sussman, flute • Kurt Sassmannshaus, violin • Keiko Ying, cello • Tao Lin, piano

ROBERT SCHUMANN
Violin Sonata No. 1 in A Minor, Op. 105
Ani Schnarch, violin • Peter Basquin, piano 

JOHANNES BRAHMS
Piano Quartet No. 3 in C Minor, Op. 60
David Bowlin, violin • Phillip Ying, viola • Ahrim Kim, cello • Elinor Freer, piano
