Capitol Chamber Artists

by The Staff on May 23, 2013


Capitol Chamber Artists will complete their 44th season this Saturday night with a varied program, with works that range from the romantic era to the 20th century.

These will include Joseph Rheinberger’s Six Pieces for Violin and Organ, as well as works by Maurice Durufle and CCA organist Alfred Fedak.

To celebrate John Corigliano’s 70th birthday, CCA will be performing his Violin and Piano Sonata of 1963. Corigliano has written of the work, “It was originally entitled Duo, and therefore obviously treats both instruments as co-partners. Virtuosity is of great importance in adding color and energy to the work which is basically an optimistic statement.”

On Saturday, the CCA lineup will include organist Fedak, pianist Aniko Szokody, violinist-violist Mary Lou Saetta and flautist Irvin Gilman.

Capitol Chamber Artists will perform Saturday (May 25) at 8 PM at Westminster Presbyterian Church (262 State St., Albany). There will be a preconcert recital at 7 PM. Tickets are $16, $8 students. For more info, call 458-9231.
