Gerald Carpenter: Music Club Keyed Up for Saturday Matinée

Afternoon concert will feature piano and flutes, piano and voice, and solo piano

The Santa Barbara Music Club will offer its November matinée concert at 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 20, in its favorite venue, the Faulkner Gallery of the Santa Barbara Public Library, 40 E. Anapamu St.

Maya by Ian Clarke will lead off Saturday's concert of the Santa Barbara Music Club

As always, admission is free and the public is invited.

The program will include Maya (2000) by Ian Clarke (born in 1964) and the Hungarian Fantasy of Franz Doppler (1821-83) as performed by the Silver Winds, with Erin McKibben and Beverly Brossmann on flutes and Elijah Langdon Quetin on piano.

Then, pianist Robert Else will play four solo pieces by Johannes Brahms (1833-97): the Ballade in G-Minor, Opus 118, No. 3, the Intermezzo in A-Major, Opus 118, No. 2, the Intermezzo in B-Flat Minor, Opus 117, No. 2, and the Capriccio in D-Minor, Opus 116, No. 7.

The afternoon will conclude with soprano Evie Rangel and pianist Margaret Halbig performing four tunes from the Serate musicali/Musical Evenings (“La pastorella delle alpi,” “La partenza,” “L’orgia” and “La promessa”) by Gioacchino Rossini (1792-1868).

Take note, all ye who have complained about my use of the spelling “flautist” rather than “flutist” — the eminent Clarke calls himself a “flautist/composer.”

He describes his Maya as follows: “A beautifully dreamy and accessible piece using a few note bends … The title is in reference to the meaning ‘illusion’ rather than the South American civilisation.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
