HARRISON — Sebago-Lengthy Lake Music Competition pronounces the artists and applications for its 2019 season. Designed by the music director and famend pianist, Mihae Lee, the varied and high-quality live shows have been a summer season spotlight for residents and guests in Maine.
Be part of the 27 world-class musicians for the 47th season on Tuesdays from July 16 to Aug. 13.
Positioned within the foothills of Maine’s Lake Area, the competition shall be held on the historic Deertrees Theatre. The live shows have been lauded by the Portland Press Herald: “Backstage on the Deertrees Theatre in Harrison opens onto the Maine woods, the theater itself has a number of the most exceptional acoustics in New England, and the chamber music one would count on to listen to at Lincoln Heart.”
All 5 applications this summer season are full of favorites, discoveries and a few instrumental surprises. Among the many favorites are three Dvořák compositions: a quintet from early in his profession, a quartet written when he was an internationally acclaimed composer, and the ever-popular “Dumky” Trio.
The discoveries embody the romantic works of three good girls composers — Amy Seashore, Louise Farrenc and Clara Schumann — who refused to let the bias towards feminine composers stifle them. Schumann receives particular acknowledgement on her bicentennial 12 months.
There can even be some sudden instrumental combos in Vivaldi’s “Concerto for Flute, Oboe and Bassoon” and Haydn’s “Divertimento a tré for Horn, Violin and Cello.” As an added deal with, Boccherini takes the viewers to Spain together with his guitar quintet, an instrument showing within the competition for the primary time.
Each new and acquainted faces shall be featured within the competition, which can welcome to its roster clarinetist Romie de Guise-Langlois, violinist Amy Schroeder, violists Jonathan Bagg and Matthew Sinno, and guitarist Oren Fader.
