FARMINGTON — A Maine Mountain Chamber Music concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1, at Nordica Auditorium at the University of Maine at Farmington.

The concert will feature Jasmine Lin, violin; Elizabeth Anderson, cello; and Maine Mountain Chamber Music co-directors Laurie Kennedy, viola, and Yuri Funahashi, piano. The group will perform the single movement Piano Quartet by Gustav Mahler, the Piano Quartet by Joaquin Turina, the Claude Debussy Cello Sonata, and “Songs of My People” by Michael White.

Michael White’s “Songs of My People” for violin, viola and cello, composed in 2012, is based on six traditional Jewish songs and “celebrates the beautiful music of the Jewish people written over the last 600 years.”

Turina’s Piano Quartet in A Minor is infused with the characteristic grace of Spanish folk music, containing numerous Gypsy and Andalusian references. Most listeners are captivated by the fiery rhythms and beautiful lyricism of the piece. Debussy’s Sonata for Cello and Piano is one of his most forward-looking.

The event is sponsored by Arts Institute of Western Maine.

Tickets cost $15 for adults, free for those 18 and younger and students with ID.
