In one of the most diverse concerts in this year’s Finger Lakes Chamber Music Festival, the July 21 program beginning at 7:30 p.m. at Anthony Road Winery features the music of 19th-century Austrian composer Anton Diabelli and two tango masters, Piazzolla and Carlos Gardel whose tango made famous in Al Pacino’s dance scene in Scent of a Woman is on the pogram.
There also is a flute and guitar piece called Dances from the Madhouse, and other instruments range from violin and viola to bassoon. But perhaps most notable are six short poems by Robert Frost set to music by Richard Auldon Clark and sung by soprano Alissa Rose.
The Clark work was commissioned by the Festival and only became possible when Frost’s earliest works published before 1923 reached the public domain this January. Among them are some of his poems most loved for the word pictures they paint of everyday life in New England.
Selected poems include:
Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
Nothing Good Can Last
The Lockless Door
A Miner Bird
In a Deserted Graveyard
Fire and Ice
The concert includes a reception and the winery is handicap accessible. Tickets are $25 for adults and free for students of any age. To purchase tickets in advance, visit FingerLakes-Music.org
