Treemonisha Suite: a new arrangement of the ragtime opera by Scott Joplin plus vocal and keyboard music of 19th and early 20th Century America


Played on an 1864 Melodeon and folding Preacher’s reed organ


Time:              4 pm


Tickets:          $20 general


$15 Students/Seniors


Tickets available at www.gemsny.org/melodeon20122013.html and at the door


Description:


MELODEON presents the second of three concerts during the 2012-13 season at Church of the Epiphany, York Avenue at East 74th St., NYC, on Sunday, January 6th, 2013 at 4 p.m. MELODEON performs music from 19th and early 20th century America using period antique instruments from  keyboardist Artis Wodehouse’s collection. Wodehouse, (cited by The New York Times as “savior of the old and neglected”) has collected and restored a group of largely forgotten and rarely heard antique keyboard instruments. She formed MELODEON in 2011 to present unusual and rarely-performed 19th-century American music. Baritone George Spitzer and soprano Marti Newland are joining Wodehouse for the January concert.


The concert will feature the premiere of a new arrangement of music taken from Scott Joplin’s masterpiece, his ragtime opera, Treemonisha.  In a collaboration with soprano Marti Newland, baritone George Spitzer, and Wodehouse (at the piano and folding Preacher’s organ) MELODEON will hit the musical high points and outline the dramatic trajectory of this landmark American opera.  Other works on the program include songs by the New Orleans composer Louis Moreau Gottschalk, and Arthur Farwell’s arrangements of songs of the Ohama Indian tribe. Keyboardist Wodehouse will play rarely-heard selections of 19th-c. American dance music by Charles D’Albert on her completely restored 1864 Treat and Davis Melodeon, built in New Haven, Connecticut.


Performers:


Artis Wodehouse, antique American keyboards


Marti Newland, soprano


George Spitzer baritone

Treemonisha Suite – Scott Joplin, arr. Artis Wodehouse
