Vintage Cellos … and Zuill!!
Jazz & Classics brings Zuill Bailey back with Friends for an All-Cello Labor Day Concert
General $45 Senior $40 Student w/ID $25
Juneau Jazz & Classics brings local favorite Zuill Bailey and his cellist friends for a unique all-cello Labor Day weekend concert featuring musical works familiar and new. The September 2 concert at the JACC begins at 7 pm.
The concert opens with the baroque master Francois Couperin’s Treizieme (thirteenth) Concert performed by Cicely Parnas and Melissa Kraut. All four cellists take the stage for Max Bruch’s famous Kol Nidrei (All Vows). Originally scored for cello and orchestra, the piece is based on Jewish prayer for Yom Kippur. The quartet then performs an all-cello arrangement of Johann Bach’s famous Chaconne from the Partita no. 2 in D.
In the second half, Zuill Bailey plays solo in Robert Schumann’s Cello Concerto in A minor, a favorite among audiences and performers alike, with the orchestral parts scored for the other three cellos.
The concert will close with Parnas, Blajian, and Kraut performing Vintage by contemporary composer and cellist Patrick Laird. The New York musician explores a fusion of classical and rock, grounded in the structure and beauty of the classics music, yet drawn to the energy and dynamic range of popular music. Laird is the founding member, cellist, and songwriter for the cello-rock ensemble Break of Reality and his music is increasingly reaching out to sold-out audiences across the country and overseas.
Tickets are $45, $40 for seniors, and $25 for students with ID, and are available at Hearthside Books, the JACC, calling the JJ&C office 463-3378 or buying on line below.
