She was a great artist…”: Masterpieces by Beach, Chaminade & Boulanger

Wednesday, March 9, 2022

1-2pm (PT), 2-3pm (MT), 3-4pm (CT), 4-5pm (ET)

on Zoom

Pianist Ian Scarfe will be joined by French violinist Mélanie Clapiès for a program of lyrical and intriguing works by several overlooked composers, each of them female.

The duo will present music by American composer Amy Beach, including her “Romance for Violin and Piano”, which premiered at the Women’s Musical Congress of 1893. They will also present works by two French composers, Cecile Chaminade and Lili Boulanger, who were among the most talented composers in Paris in the early 20th century.

Scarfe and Clapies will share stories about the composers and the history of this music, and offer a kind of “listening guide” to the audience to deepen the listening experience. They will also be on hand to take questions from the audience and participate in a live discussion afterwards.

About Ian Scarfe

Ian Scarfe enjoys a wide-ranging career as an advocate for music. Initially following directions to become a piano soloist, he quickly discovered the joys of diversifying his work. As a performer he is equally comfortable as a soloist, accompanying recital partners, or in the mix of a small or large ensemble. As a speaker, he is a frequent lecturer during formal concerts, a host and emcee during casual musical events, and also a narrator to children’s programs. As a musical entrepreneur, he keeps a busy travel schedule across the United States and Europe organizing concerts, tours, and festivals.

About Mélanie Clapiès

Mélanie Clapiès is a violinist whose career has taken her all over the world. She has held teaching positions in France and the United States, and recently earned her doctorate from Yale. She is a musician who is known not only for her technical prowess, but for her complete commitment to expressive performances, as you will soon hear.
