Music from Marin - Summer Festival

The 5th annual Music from Marin Summer Festival presents music from Vienna, home to both masters of the past and more recent times

Vienna — City of Dreams…and Great Music

 

10 FREE performances at 3 venues across Marin County:

 

All performances last approximately 75 minutes.

This music festival includes three programs:

 

RED Vienna / Vienna GOLD

A chamber concert for instrumentalists, singers, and dancers. The period of 1919–1934 is referred to as Red Vienna, a time when a democratically elected Socialist government improved the lives of a majority of its citizens, without diminishing the quality of life of the elite.

The great tradition of high art was continued by Franz Lehar, Anton Webern, Fritz Kreisler, Alban Berg and Eric Wolfgang Korngold, while a new style of serious music meant to reach the masses was furthered by Hanns Eisler and Wilhelm Grosz.

Gomorra by HK Gruber (American Premiere)

Contemporary Opera Marin, Paul Smith director, presents one of the most beautiful works composed in the latter half of the 20th century. This ”music spectacle in one act” by the highly acclaimed Viennese composer HK Gruber is fully staged and sung in English. This version for five singers (Valentina Osinski, Michael Orlinsky, Richard Mix and Sibel Dimermin) and chorus describes a land of plenty and peace and love. If the fantastically beautiful scenic design reminds you of where we live, so much the better.
