Highlights of Lake Tahoe SummerFest 2014

  • Mendelssohn—"Fingal's Cave" from The Hebrides (August 1): Inspired by a visit to the titular Scottish cave, Mendelssohn's symphonic overture subtly evokes the eerie atmosphere of the vast, sea-filled chamber of stone.
  • Fauré—Piano Quartet No. 1 (August 10): The first two sections of the piece capture a sense of cheer, but the third sees whimsy give way to a contemplative, wistful melody.
  • Ravel—Le Tombeau de Couperin (August 15): Composed between 1914 and 1917, this lush suite is a memorial: each of the six movements is dedicated to a friend who died in World War I. By contrast, the tone is rather sprightly. Ravel himself had an explanation: "The dead are sad enough, in their eternal silence."

Lake Tahoe SummerFest

Inspired by Nevada’s abundance of awe-inspiring beauty and naturally formed concert shells, Dr. Madylon Meiling founded Lake Tahoe SummerFest to match the bounty of nature with some of humankind’s most captivating creative achievements. For nearly the entire month of August, her series fills the grounds of Sierra Nevada College with music, much of it under the able baton of Maestro Joel Revzen. Revzen’s resumé includes stints with the Metropolitan Orchestra and the Prague Symphony, two recordings with the London Symphony Orchestra, and a Grammy-winning release with Arleen Auger.
