Mistral presents: "Portraits of Madness", Julie Scolnik, artistic director

Saturday, September 9, 2023

Mistral explores the fascinating intersection of mental illness and creative genius in works by some of history's most iconic composers. Fearful of death, afflicted with mood disorders, hallucinations, or superstition, four legendary composers – Schumann, Tchaikovsky, Mahler, and Beethoven – struggled with various forms of mental health, but in the depths of their intense emotions, they transformed their pain into timeless works that continue to move and inspire generations.

A Song Mahler: Piano Quartet Tchaikovsky: Lensky’s Aria for flute & piano Beethoven: String Trio in E flat major for flute/strings Schumann: Piano Quartet Solomiya Ivakhiv, violin; Julie Scolnik, flute; Stephanie Fong, viola; Sophi Scolnik-Brower, Piano; Sasha Scolnik-Brower, cello Tickets $40 can be ordered securely on-line and printed at home at;; 978-474-6222; Flex package subscriptions of 3, 4, or 5 concerts, $35; Free student/youth rush tickets at the door (if available) MISTRAL has been bringing “unstuffy, unpredictable, and unmatched” concerts with internationally renowned musicians to the Merrimack Valley and Greater Boston area since 1997. Under the leadership of Artistic Director Julie Scolnik, Mistral performances are always a little eccentric, stubbornly personal, impassioned, and committed to invigorating old traditions with an ever-youthful perspective. The Mistral 2023-2024 concert season is funded in part by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
