Time present and time past
Are both perhaps present in time future,
And time future contained in time past…
T. S. Eliot
Dear Friends of Da Camera,
With the 2018-19 season, Da Camera explores the multiple ways in which the present and future are informed by the past. In both chamber music and jazz, there is an ongoing dialogue with the great composers and performers who came before us and serve as inspiration. This continuum of time is especially meaningful to me this season, as it marks my 25th as Da Camera’s artistic director, and so I find myself both looking back and ahead. Continuing to make connections between music and art, literature, theater and ideas, we offer musical programs inspired by poet John Ashbery, artist Cy Twombly and the explosively creative birth of the 20th century in Vienna 1900. With such masters as Richard Goode, Jordi Savall, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Chucho Valdes and the New York Philharmonic String Quartet we are in the presence of performers embodying the greatest of musical traditions; and the younger generation finds its voice through pianist Aaron Diehl, composer Matthew Aucoin, vocalist Jazzmeia Horn and the genre-bending Russian Renaissance — all showing evidence of new ways of interpreting the past we inherit and making it relevant to today’s world. This continuum of past and future in art continues to be a powerful source of inspiration to me personally, and I look forward to sharing it with our adventurous and ever-expanding Da Camera audiences in this very special season.
Artistic and General Director
