Vintage Sounds from America’s Past


A musical depiction of the Civil War Battle of Manassas by “Blind” Tom Wiggins, and Rabindranath Tagore’s Bengali poem Gitanjali musicalized by American composer John Alden Carpenter.


Time:              4 pm


Tickets:          $20 general; $15 Students/Seniors


Tickets available online and at the door


                       


Description:


MELODEON presents the third of three concerts during the 2012-13 season at Church of the Epiphany, York Avenue at East 74th St., NYC, on Sunday, April 7 at 4 p.m. MELODEON performs music from 19th  and early 20th century America using period antique instruments from  keyboardist Artis Wodehouse’s collection. Featured works on the program are “Gitanjali,” an “orientalist” song cycle by John Alden Carpenter from 1914 based on poetry by the Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore, rarely performed 1912 songs by the African-American composer Will Marion Cook, “General William Booth Enters Heaven” by Charles Ives; “Romanza” by Eugene Gigout for the 1889 Mason & Hamlin Liszt foot-pump organ, and the 1866 musical depiction of the “Civil War Battle of Manassas” by “Blind” Tom Wiggins.


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 and early 20th Century American music. Soprano Marti Newland, tenor Stephen Oosting, and baritone George Spitzer are joining Wodehouse for the April concert.
