  • Description
Chamber Music Amici proudly presents the World Premiere of Colin Pip Dixon's Chaucer’s’ Rooster and the Fox, live at The Shedd Institute, Tuesday, August 31, at 7:00 PM. Limited number of tickets available.
Writes Chamber Music Amici: "We are excited to finally be presenting the world premiere of The Rooster and the Fox, our commission of Chaucer’s beast fable, composed by Colin Pip Dixon. It is a sextet for piano, strings, bassoon, and narrator. Colin chose to feature the bassoon and wrote the piece for Steve Vacchi, virtuoso bassoonist of University or Oregon School of Music. The narrator will be seasoned Broadway actor Macintyre Dixon (Colin's father). We think of him as our personal Homer!"
Also on the program is Ernst von Dohnányi's gorgeous Piano Quintet No. 2 in E-glat Minor, Op. 26.
Personnel for the evening: Nathalie Fortin, piano; MacIntyre Dixon, narrator; Arnaud Ghillebaert, viola; Hal Grossman, violin; Steve Vacchi, bassoon; Steven Pologe, cello; and Sharon Schuman, violin.
