Paul Schoenfield - Cafe Music for Piano Trio
Decoda returns to DePauw University in November for the last visit of our two year residency. Our final concert will be a collaborative performance with the DePauw University Orchestra (DUO) sitting side-by-side with Decoda members, who will be featured soloists. We will participate in a college preparation event for high school students interested in pursuing degrees in music. Decoda will also be returning as guests on the Storytellers series, an informal concert format which resembles a late-night talk show with interviews, performances, and musical games hosted by two very entertaining DePauw students.
An eclectic program from Lyrica favorites Decoda and soprano Mary Bonhag, built around Schoenberg’s theatrical masterwork, Pierrot Lunaire.
Scrag begins its 2016-17 season with a program of caberet culminating in Arnold Schoenberg’s groundbreaking chamberwork Pierrot Lunaire. The concert will begin with alternations of Paul Schoenfield’s Café Music and cabaret songs of Schoenberg and American master William Bolcom.

Julian Wachner, conductor Steve Reich – City Life This minimalist composition for chamber orchestra features two pianos and digital samples of a wide variety of city sounds, mainly recorded by Reich himself in and around New York City.
Aaron Copland – Quiet City Aaron Copland’s Quiet City was originally written for a play by Irwin Shaw’s music that never made it out of previews. Copland later combined the music into a single composition.
This marks the second year of collaborating with pianist, Luba Poliak in a duo recital. Sonatas by Prokofiev and Janacek performed side by side in a surprising emotional contrast of two wartime pieces and their equally differing reactions to their own compositions. The famous Franck Sonata follows with two light treats, one by Boulanger and the other by violnist, Anna Elashvili.
An exciting collaboration between Decoda and AALLOTAR!
2016 marks the second annual week-long collaboration between members of Decoda (Carnegie Hall's affiliate ensemble) and a folk ensemble creating and performing music together in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. "The music will be chosen and composed to be a direct celebration of the UP's landscape, culture, and heritage," says Beethoven and Banjos Artistic Director and UP native Evan Premo.
23Arts delivers its second 'Deconstructing...' lecture and performance at the Mountain Top Library with pianist Luba Poliak and violinist Anna Elashvili in 'Deconstructing Prokofiev', which will examine and explore Prokofiev's Second Sonata Op. 94a, four movements written originally for flute and piano and later transcribed for violin and piano.
