Jay Campbell, Cello, and Conor Hanick, Piano

Jay Campbell, cello, and Conor Hanick, piano, performed at the prestigious 92nd Street Y in New York. With a large contingency in attendance, the duo opened with Claude Debussy’s Cello Sonata (1915). In the Debussy, the duo captured the work’s stunning display of the beauty and versatility of the cello. The Cello Sonata (1915) fits the impressionist period with its fluid, non-linear musical forms and harmonic language. With aplomb, Campbell aptly evoked the intended mood, atmosphere, and tonal structures. Hanick concurred musically as he played the magnificent concert grand piano with sublime facility.

Insomia

Blake Allen’s Insomnia is a cerebral, enigmatic, and mystifying artistic creation chronicling a night of an insomniac narrator. Based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s short story “Sleep and Waking” (1934), Allen mobilizes the power of music to dramatize and intensify the import of the conflicting tensions of the restive, lone sufferer.

American Classical Orchestra at Harlem Parish

Henry Purcell’s inventive Chaconne opened the program, performed with superb musicianship by the ACO’s performers, thereby setting the standard of sublime artistry to follow, beautifully filmed, recorded, and produced in the magnificent Harlem Parish setting. How delightful to hear, see and experience representative 17th-century works performed on period instruments. The imaginatively engaged listener propelled by their suspension of belief is anachronistically transported into a magical musical experience.
