Letter from the Artistic Director: 

 

The 2022-2023 season marks the 5th anniversary of Kallos Chamber Music Series, and we are delighted to be able to share another year of beautiful chamber music with you and our community. This would not have been possible without the support of our audience members, artists, patrons, and especially our partner, the New Haven Lawn Club Preservation Trust. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your enthusiasm, generosity, and continued support. 

 

As we recover from the havoc wreaked by the pandemic, more than ever, we recognize the importance of the arts to society and humanity, and the responsibility that we have as 21st century artists. With our deepest gratitude, we welcome you to our 5th season: A Celebration of the Arts. 

 

We have passionately curated four concert experiences featuring works of great composers that inspire and are inspired by different forms of art. We hope that you will join us as we explore music inspired by colors, movement, nature, and humanity. 

 

Sincerely,

Minyoung Kang 

The 2022-2023 season marks our fifth anniversary, and we are planning to come together with remarkable musicians from all over the world
for a four-part concert series.

THE COLORS 
OF THE SOUND
WED, NOV 9

Color, tone, line, shape, space, texture, movement; these are just a few of the elemental properties shared between great works of music and art. The inaugural concert of Kallos’ 5th season explores the intimate relationship between the two art forms through some of the most color-inspired music in the chamber music repertoire by Messiaen, Scriabin, Schoenfeld, and Ravel. Join us as we delve into the synesthetic world of Messiaen and Scriabin, and the music-inspired artwork of Jackson Pollock and Marc Chagall.

RHYTHM OF LIFE
WED, FEB 1

Our second concert, entitled “Rhythms of Life,” draws inspiration from dance - an art form in which the human body becomes a medium for sensing, understanding, and communicating ideas, emotions, and experiences. This program of piano four-hand dance music by Moszkowski, Rachmaninoff, Liszt, Ravel, Brahms and Khachaturian features a variety of rhythmic patterns found in waltzes, Spanish dances, and even the sword dance!

SOUNDS OF NATURE
WED, MAR 29

From the earliest moments in human evolution, music has directly reflected nature and its surroundings. Claude Debussy, one of the composers featured in tonight’s concert, said that “music is the expression of the movement of the waters, the play of curves described by changing breezes." With guest musicians from the esteemed Chamber Music Society of  Lincoln Center, Kallos presents an all-French program of chamber music, featuring harp, flute, and strings. Debussy is joined by composers Françaix, Roussel, and Tournier on a scenic journey of the pastoral and natural settings of 20th century rural France.

THE ROOTS 
OF OUR CULTURE
WED, APR 26

German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche once said, “folk music is the original melody of man; it is the musical mirror of the world.” Folk music has the power and wisdom to capture the breadth of humanity. From times of joy and celebration to those of sorrow and pain, it serves as consolation to our body, mind and soul. The last concert of Kallos’ 5th season reflects on the relationship of music and humanity through chamber music deeply rooted in folk traditions. We showcase Copland’s take on the Wild West, Suk’s deeply embedded flavors of Bohemia, and Brahms’s homage to the Roma peoples.
