On Tuesday, April 17, 2018, Oklahoma City’s Brightmusic Chamber Ensemble will present the fifth concert of its 2017-18 season, “Old and New.”   The “old” is Franz Schubert’s perennially-popular “Trout” quintet, written nearly 100 years ago when Schubert was only 22.  The “new” is a World Premier performance of a striking work by Oklahoma City composer Samuel Magrill, commissioned by Brightmusic.   The quartet by Saint-Saëns, falling somewhere in between, was the composer’s second and final foray into the genre.

The works on the program are:
  • Samuel Magrill, Five Bagatelles for Flute, Violin, Cello & Piano
    Commissioned by Brightmusic for World Premier Performance 
  • Camille Saint-Saëns, Piano Quartet No. 2 in B-flat major, op. 41 (for piano, violin, viola & cello)
  • Franz  Schubert, Piano Quintet in A major, D. 667 The “Trout” (for piano, violin, viola, cello & double bass)
Musicians appearing:
Gregory Lee (violin), Mark Neumann (viola), Jonathan Ruck (cello), George Speed (double bass), Mira Magrill (flute), Amy I-Lin Cheng (piano), and Samuel Magrill (piano)

The performance will take place at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, April 17 at St. Paul’s Cathedral, 127 NW 7th Street (at Robinson).  Individual concert admission is $20 per ticket.  Children, students and active-duty military personnel are admitted free with ID.  More information about this concert is available on our website, www.brightmusic.org.

Commentary:
OKC BALLET 
PRESENTS GREAT
PERFORMANCE OF
PETITE MORT
FRIDAY NIGHT

By Nancy Condit

     Artistic Director Robert Mills celebrated the end of his tenth season with the OKC Ballet by presenting the tension filled Petal, followed by Petite Mort, and The Means to Fly. The performance was an evening of dances new to enthusiastic Oklahoma City audiences. 
     Mill's annual season ending production of classical, yet contemporary ballets, gives Oklahoma City Ballet goers a chance to see performances from around the world. Petite Mort's choreographer, Czech republic based Jiří Kylián, is "one of the most influential choreographers in the last 30 years," said Mills.  Petite Mort had its company premiere tonight.  Mills' The Means to Fly, began its development at the National Choreographers Initiative in Irvine, California in 2017.
Helen Pickett's Petal, which made its debut with Aspen Santa Fe Ballet, received its Oklahoma premiere tonight at 8 p.m. in the Civic Center Auditorium. 
     There are two more performances of Petite Mort: A Triple Bill - Saturday evening at 8 p.m., and Sunday at 2 p.m. For more information go online to https://www.okcballet.org/
