2016-2017 Chameleon's 15th Anniversary Season event 3

“No! Chameleon Musicians don’t change their colors in the middle of performance. Nor do they switch their attire in keeping with what they are playing. They don’t even stick out long gummy tongues to assist in turning the pages of the music. What they actually do, is play with brilliance, energy, accurate intonation and fine ensemble.

The group, which has been performing for thirteen years, changes its personnel in accordance with the requirements of the music.

This can vary considerably within a program, and takes place in one of the best possible locations for chamber music—the Josephine Leiser Center in downtown Fort Lauderdale. No stage, no formal concert hall, just a sunny (this is Florida you know), intimate room around which are grouped chairs within mere feet of the players.” (American Record Guide, Alan Becker)

The Chiltern Camerata performs music by Brahms and Stravinsky

Brahms - A German Requiem
Stravinsky - Suite 'Pulcinella'


The players of the Chiltern Camerata follow up the exceptional success of the first concert of their current season when they return on Saturday, 25 February to All Saints' Parish Church, High Wycombe, in a performance of choral and orchestral music by Brahms and Stravinsky

They will be performing the Brahms German Requiem, in which the orchestra will be joined by soloists and singers from the Camerata Consort of singers. This large-scale work for chorus, orchestra, a soprano and a baritone soloist was composed between 1865 and 1868. A German Requiem is not primarily a Mass for the dead. Instead, it is intended as comfort for those who mourn and who feel the pain of the death of others. Brahms had just experienced such loss extremely personally: his mother had died that very same year.

Stravinsky's Pulcinella Suite for orchestra in 8 short movements was composed in 1922 and is derived from the ballet of that name. It was the gateway to Stravinsky's second phase as a composer, the neoclassical, in which the composer looked back to the past in this charming, witty, disarmingly simple music influenced by eighteenth-century music.
