Marilyn Keiser

The King of Instruments is in the spotlight on this episode. The setting is the Visitors Center at Old Salem Museums and Gardens, where in 2014 they celebrated the restoration of the historic 1800 David Tannenberg organ with a special concert series. This program features two events in the series.

The first features Marilyn Keiser at the keyboard for Mendelssohn and Bach, plus pieces by modern and contemporary composers with Winston-Salem ties. She’s also joined by Indiana University faculty artists for a trio by Haydn and a movement from a suite by Joseph Rheinberger.

The second part of the program has Peter DuBois playing the renowned instrument for music by Buxtehude and Handel as well as a set of liturgical preludes from various composers.

This program by the Greensboro Symphony Orchestra takes its theme from the devolution shared by the characters which open and close the concert. The title character from Britten’s opera Peter Grimes descends into madness; from his story we’ll hear four famous instrumental passages depicting the sea to start the program. Beethoven’s Third Symphony was originally intended to honor Napoleon, but his transformation into yet another power-mad monarch caused the composer to change the dedication; that symphony closes the program. In between the virtuoso Igor Kamenz performs Tchaikovsky’s beloved first piano concerto, and treats us to an encore by Schumann.
