Neo Camerata brings the vibrant and emotionally stirring music of Mark Landson to life in a program that features his works for violin, cello and piano.
The Sonata for Violin and Piano “Troubled Souls” takes one on a journey from anger and frustration to a cartharsis of beauty. It was the work that gained Landson his first significant patron. After the premier of the work in 1999, an emotionally moved woman in attendance reached out and offered a significant amount for his next project.
The Trio for Violin, Cello and Piano “Travels” presents the metaphysical journey of a protaganist who desires to keep optimism in his life throughout times of life’s inevitable difficulties. This is a transcription of the original string quartet version, which took first place at The Ear competition in New York City in November 2016.
The Cello Sonata “Moments In Memory” presents 3 scenes which were moments that prompted the composer to note down melodies, or themes to be notated at the time. In 2017, the sketches formed the basis of this commssioned work.
Performers: Mark Landson, violin, John Landefeld, cello, Sunny Yun, piano
Formed in 2003, Neo Camerata has performed at the Cannes Film Festival, the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, and on the bill with orchestras and pop singers.
