Olmsted Ensemble to Perform in New England and Southeast
PRLog - Jan. 12, 2014 - SOMERVILLE, Mass. -- Praised for "glorious music" and "great energy and virtuosity," (St. Andrews Performing Arts), the Olmsted Ensemble (Peter H. Bloom, flute; Brian Clague, violin; Jennifer Shallenberger, viola; Timothy Roberts, cello) concertizes throughout the United States. The Boston-based quartet, known for its vivid and compelling performances, will perform chamber music by European and American masters at multiple venues: on Sunday, January 19 at 4:00 pm at the First Religious Society in Newburyport MA (information 978-465-0602 ext. 401); on Thursday, January 23 at 9:15 am and 12:15 pm at The Centre for Performing and Visual Arts of Coweta County in Newnan GA; on Friday, January 24 at 7:30 pm in the Jacobs Concert Series, Georgia Regents University, Maxwell Performing Theatre in Augusta GA (information 706-790-9274); and on Saturday January 25 at 7:30 pm in the Piedmont College Chapel, Demorest GA (information 706-778-8500 ext. 1211).

The program will include the dramatic, rarely-heard Quartet in D Minor by Charles Hommann (1803-1872?), a Philadelphia-born and American-trained composer; Quartet Opus 41 No 2 in F Major by Ignace Pleyel (a favorite student of Haydn and an important influence on Mozart); Quartet No. 1 in D Minor by Juan Crisóstomo de Arriaga (1806-1826),  a Spanish violinist and composer whose precocious career was cut short when he died at age 19; and Mozart’s beloved D Major Quartet (K. 285), one of the masterworks of the literature.

Members of the Olmsted Ensemble have appeared with orchestras and chamber groups in North America, Europe, and the Far East.  Flutist Peter H. Bloom, whose playing has been called "a revelation for unforced sweetness and strength" (The Boston Globe), performs in North America, Europe, Asia, New Zealand and Australia.  He tours with noted chamber music and jazz ensembles; is featured on 40 CDs (Dorian, SONY Classical, Newport Classic, Leo, other labels); serves as consultant to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and other museums; and was a winner of the American Musicological Society's Noah Greenberg Award.  Brian Clague, violin, has toured throughout the U.S., Europe and Japan, appearing in solo recitals and serving as concertmaster for numerous orchestras.  He is a recording artist for national PBS productions and for film, major record labels, and commercial projects.  Jennifer Shallenberger, viola, has performed with chamber ensembles and orchestras in the U.S., Canada, Japan, Taiwan, and Korea.  Cellist Timothy Roberts has performed nationally and internationally with such groups as the Smithsonian Chamber Players, Alea III, the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Carmel Bach Festival, the Boston Pops, and the Vienna Choir Boys as a member of the Brandenburg Ensemble.
