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.
Prydatkevych: From Ukrainian Rhapsody for Violin & Piano: II. 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

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.
