Max Tan and Friends #3: A Chausson and Faure Premiere

Sat, October 10, 2020 7:45 PM, EDT

Dear friends,

I am pleased to introduce this premiere of many dimensions! Recorded at Oktaven AudiO studio in Mt. Vernon, New York, where many Grammy-nominated recordings have been made and released on a variety of record labels, the audio and video quality of this recording will be some of the best on this stream series with additional footage that you don't want to miss! This isn't just like a concert - it's like going to see a film production while being able to eat, drink, react, and make comments with your fellow attendees! Here are some of the unique aspects of this event:

Firstly, I am happy to collaborate with musicians from New York, Boston, and Paris, in which you will see Marisa Gupta, Coleman Itzkoff, and Geneva Lewis return to the world of virtual Groupmuses! I am so happy to be joined also by violinist Stephanie Zyzak and violist Marta Lambert, also Groupmusers, who will make their appearances in the Chausson.

Secondly, this premiere will feature an arrangement of the Poème, a beloved work usually for violin and orchestra. This chamber ensemble version is rarely programmed, especially in the United States.

Thirdly, the exploration of the Fauré involves looking at the score with the composer's editorial markings which have not made its way into any published editions. It changes our musical approach, and has been a fun experience. We are excited to share this with you. I am also making a concert debut on viola. Come for the viola jokes in the Zoom session!

Although this is not a live performance, it is a live broadcast that the musicians will join to watch and discuss. In keeping with the high quality live-streams from this summer's past with Mackenzie Melemed and others, the musical experience of this broadcast will be no less (perhaps even greater!) in quality. I hope you will join us for this very special premiere. See you there!

Sincerely yours,
Max Tan
