Next Generations explores works by later composers and features a rare 19th century Érard concert grand piano in pristine condition. The instrument traveled from Amsterdam to Boulder and offers a view into the colorful sound world that attracted Haydn, Beethoven, Liszt, Clara Schumann, Saint-Saens, Fauré, and many others to the Érard pianos. Pianist Mina Gajić and Dutch soprano Josefien Stoppelenburg collaborate on some of Clara Schumann’s most special art songs. Gajić also presents a fantasia rich with depth and pathos, composed by Mozart. Violinist YuEun Kim, violist Paul Miller, and cellist Coleman Itzkoff join Gajić for Mozart’s Piano Quartet in G Minor. The program features a fabulous short piece by Lili Boulanger, performed by YuEun Kim and Mina Gajić. 


An afternoon lecture covering the repertoire will take place in the chapel in addition to a masterclass.
