Detroit Symphony Orchestra flutist Amanda Blaikie and and cellist Una O’Riordan will accompany pianist Rudolf Ozolins in a night of chamber trios. The event be on Friday, April 13 and held at Birmingham’s Hagopian World of Rugs.
Chamber music is a form of classical music that is specifically composed for a small number of players.
“… chamber music engages both performer and audience in an intimate artistic dialogue not only through its casual settings, but also in its descriptive storytelling nature and requirement of special musical and social skills not found in symphonic works,” said a press release. “Chamber music eliminates any divide between audience and performer by engaging all into sharing an ever-changing dynamic and flowing artistic process.”
The performance will highlight the skillsets of all three musicians, demonstrating Blaikie’s “sparkling tone” and “sensitive, expressive musicality” according to a press release. O’Riordan will come prepared with her vast experience as a chamber musician, having performed across Michigan in a variety of series-based performances such as Birmingham’s “Pro Mozart, Classical Brunch” and “Enescu.” Ozolins’ technical mastery is impressive, too, as he has studied music in the U.S. for 17 years.
“(He) received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in piano performance from Indiana University. In 2013, he completed a Doctoral degree in piano performance at Michigan State University,” said the event’s press release.
Tickets cost $25, $22 for seniors and $10 for students. All tickets cost $7 more at the door. To purchase tickets ahead of time visit detroitchamberwinds.org or call 248-559-2095.
