February 2023

February 2023

Reprinted from thescen3.org, preview by Betsy Schwarm

A virtual re-broadcast (no live performances) of the February 2022 “Love Changes Everything” CCP program is available from February 11-25, 2023, via On The Stage. Tickets $5-20 and are available at: www.coloradochamberplayerstix.org

Given the troublesome events of the past two years, one can scarcely find a person who doesn’t know someone recently affected by worries.  From pandemics to wildfires, it gets to all of us, even through second-hand news.  However, encouraging signs might be appearing around the periphery.  As the Colorado Chamber Players remind us, ‘love changes everything.’

That slogan is the title of a video on demand the Colorado Chamber Players (CCP) will be presenting virtually in February 2023.  The program’s theme grew out of the lifelong friendship shared by Johannes Brahms and Clara Schumann, both of whom are featured.  Moreover, as violist and CCP Executive Director Barbara Hamilton observes, “But it’s also about how the pandemic has transformed us all, and how much we rely on our loved ones to get through all this… Love changes everything – and sometimes results in amazing music.”

In this case, the genuinely amazing music includes the second of Clara Schumann’s Romances, op. 22, for violin and piano, dating from 1853 and written for master violinist Joseph Joachim.
