Summer Serenade

North Country Chamber Players Summer Serenade Aug 4

The earliest serenades were usually sung at night to express love and devotion.

This tradition continued through the Baroque and Classical periods, but really reached its pinnacle with the sophisticated multi-movement works of the Romantic era performed for larger audiences. In Brahms’ Serenade in D, he channels Mozart, Haydn and Schubert, but never sets aside his own Romantic sensibilities. This expansive, jubilant, song-like, somber, stately and galloping piece is contrasted on the program by Carl Nielsen’s brief and humorous Serenata in vano.
