The Chamber Music Society of Fort Worth took the occasion of its season finale on Saturday to announce the new one for 2014-15.
Titled “Voices of the Golden Age,” the concerts will follow the model that Gary Levinson established in his first season as the organization’s artistic director; the performances will stay focused on chamber music and will welcome some musical superstars into the fold.
Besides Levinson, who will play on several of the concerts, the name most familiar to local audiences is that of Alessandro Deljavan, the only pianist to compete in both the 2009 and 2013 Cliburn competitions (he was a semifinalist and popular with fans at both). He will perform on the program Nov. 15.
Spanish guitarist and composer Jaume Torrent will perform on Feb. 21 in a unique concert that will feature his own Sonata in Two Movements for Violin and Guitar.
Pianist Anne-Marie McDermott, a member of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and artistic director of the Bravo! Music Festival in Vail, Colo. will play in a concert called “Triple Threat” on March 21.
The final concert in the series, on April 18, will welcome Alexander Kerr, current concertmaster of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra in a rare performance of two string sextets.
Area artists, such as violist Susan DuBois and pianist Daredjan Baya Kakouberi, will also appear.
All but one performance will take place at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. The Jan. 3 concert takes place a the Renzo Piano Pavilion at the Kimbell Art Museum. The complete season includes the following concert dates, artists and repertoire:
