SFS Strata I

The Santa Fe Symphony presents the virtual premiere of Rite this Way filmed in high definition at Santa Fe’s iconic Scottish Rite Center! Don’t miss this unique progressive chamber music experience, filmed live on November 10, 2022, and featuring six incredible Symphony musicians.  This beautiful performance includes Ludwig van Beethoven’s famed Quintet for Piano and Four Winds, Hypnosis for Flute and Piano by Ian Clarke, and Night Psalm by Eve Beglarian, plus Valerie Coleman’s Umoja: Anthem of Unity for Woodwind Quintet and Amanda Harberg’s Suite for Woodwind Quintet filmed “in the round” in the Scottish Rite Ballroom.

The SFS Strata series was conceived in 2019, evoking the layers of musical conversation seen in chamber music. We are proud to highlight diverse venues and repertoire as an integral part of these concerts during the 2022-2023 Season.

Rite this Way was filmed before a live audience for broadcast on SantaFeSymphonyTV.org! This concert premiered on Sunday, January 8th at 4 pm and will be available for purchase through February 8th. A ticket gives you 30-day access.

Of Note

Some musicologists believe that Beethoven’s only piano and wind quintet was inspired by Mozart’s Quintet, K.452, which has the same scoring and is also in E-flat (although it was written 12 years before Beethoven’s). Beethoven later transcribed the piece as a quartet for piano and string trio (violin, viola and cello), using the same opus number, tempo markings and overall timing.

Suite for Woodwind Quintet came about in an unlikely manner: after a conversation in a bar among composer Amanda Harberg; Gretchen Pusch, flutist for the Dorian Wind Quartet; and Pusch’s husband, Richard Bayles. The Dorian Wind Quartet subsequently commissioned Harberg to write the piece, which has become a favorite of several modern-music ensembles.

Starting as a song for women’s choir more than 20 years ago, Umoja later became a signature piece of composer Valerie Coleman’s ensemble after she arranged it for woodwind quintet. An orchestral version of the work was premiered by The Philadelphia Orchestra in 2019—the first time the orchestra performed the work of a living African-American female composer.
