We have been heartbroken having to cancel one concert after another, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, not just for our personal deprivation of live music performance, but especially for the musicians whose work and livelihoods have all but disappeared. We have great news at last!
We partnered with Mountain Lake PBS to film and subsequently stream online our June 7 concert. David Krakauer and Kathleen Tagg performed their signature program “Breath and Hammer Acoustic” in our #1 venue, the historic Methodist Church in Saranac. Streamed on both Facebook and Youtube, the concert has had more than 3,300 views – and we’re still counting!
The 70-minute program is a passionate, eclectic musical journey that pushes beyond the boundaries of the traditional clarinet and piano duo, with works such as Debussy’s “Première Rhapsodie,” John Zorn’s “Parzial,” Kinan Azmeh’s “November 22,” Johnny Green’s American Songbook classic “Body and Soul,” as well as traditional klezmer tunes and original compositions by Krakauer and Tagg.
