Fifth House Ensemble

Saturday March 10, 2018

Times: Gates: 7:30 pm | Concert: 8:30 pm

Named after the astrological “fifth house” of creativity and joy, the Fifth House Ensemble has brought those qualities to Chicago’s classical venues for over a decade, regularly impressing with “the sheer imaginative chutzpah these young performers bring to their envelope-pushing enterprise” (Chicago Tribune). A resident ensemble of the Music Institute of Chicago and curator of the Fresh Inc chamber music festival, Fifth House is a driving force behind elevating the musicianship of their contemporaries, but they also are devoted helping the next generation reach their artistic potential, regularly going into Chicago Public Schools with Ravinia’s Reach*Teach*Play programs and embarking on a second year of partnership with Loyola University. The 10-piece ensemble of strings and winds will bring the “conviction, authority, and finesse” (New York Times) of its essential repertoire of classical currency back to the Bennett Gordon Hall stage.

On this program, Fifth House Ensemble teams up with Grammy winner and 2017 Caramoor resident artist Jason Vieaux, “perhaps the most soulful classical guitarist of his generation” (NPR), to create a sonic journey ranging from centuries-old music to modern day works. Dan Visconti’s guitar concerto Living Language serves as the centerpiece of the program, which showcases a multitude of styles from Medieval plainchant to blues, rock, and Latin dance music, including works by Robert Beaser, Alonso Mudarra, Duke Ellington, Béla Bartók, and Pat Metheny.
