of the concert from an audience member:
Sunday night's (February 28,
2010) recital at St. Paul's Church in Brookline by students of Gillian
Rogell's Chamber Music Studio offered a rich variety of amateur
musicians performing at a high level. Indeed, this member of the
audience wondered whether several of these "amateurs"
had perhaps walked the halls of a music conservatory at some previous
time. The program began with the delightful Poulenc Trio for oboe,
bassoon and piano and ended with the heartstoppingly beautiful Brahms
Trio for clarinet, cello and piano, both by truly outstanding performers.
The Brahms Trio for violin, cello and piano was an equally high
point of the evening. The audience also was introduced to the music
of Robert Baska in the form of his lovely Trio for clarinet, cello
and piano. I thought the programming artfully planned, beginning
and ending with piano and with winds or cello (the bassoon being
the "cello" of the winds) and presenting works partially,
not in their entirety. The only string quartet, Beethoven's F major,
opus 59, no. 1, also showcased how convincingly amateurs can play
and how wonderfully Gillian brings out the best of the music and
the players. -RPW, amateur pianist
