The Chamber Music Collective is pleased to present a recital for flute and piano titled “Water’s Tale,” a poetic and evocative program that seeks diverse musical expressions to celebrate the essence and beauty of water as it flows through nature. The event is slated for April 21st, at 3 pm at Northwards House, and this collaboration is bound to enthral.

She is a composer and contributor to South Africa, who comes from there, Merryl Neille. This is something that could make her contribute as a performer and also as a composer. Her international performance footprints, coupled with academic achievements in some of the most vaunted institutions like the Conservatory of Amsterdam in the Netherlands and the University of Michigan in the USA, really underscore dedication and passion for music.

Merryl’s compositional talent shone when her piece, “Winter Solstice for Flute and Piano,” took the honors in the Flute Society of NSW Composition Competition for 2020. Then she won a SAMA for Best Classical Album with “African Bird.” She has also held positions in Australia: Flute Society of New South Wales and Australian Flute Festival.

The same will be joined by pianist Eugene Joubert, who, with himself, carries a distinguished background as a graduate from the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University. Merryl gains from his experiences in collaborative piano, and therefore, duos remain much in demand for performance at various music collectives and festivals. “Water’s Tale” is a well-chosen program that invites the listener to musical discoveries associated with the diverse faces of water. The compositions remind one of the fluency, depth, and beauty of aesthetics of water. From the lush, lyrical lines of Carl Reinecke’s “Undine” Sonata, with its telling of “The Little Mermaid,” to Daniel Dorff’s “Three Lakes” Sonata, with his evocation of the placid landscape of Pennsylvania and Maine, this disc presents items that ought to please every ear.

Philippe Gaubert: Emma Greenhill, Ian Clarke, and Tori Amos Works by Emma Greenhill, Ian Clarke, and Tori Amos, Philippe Gaubert’s piece would add a work to the program to illustrate various approaches by which water has been traditionally revered in song. The recital is much more than a platform from which to showcase the musical talents of the performers; it provides a setting within which the audience is transported into profound links between music, nature, and the emotions it signifies. Promising an afternoon of performances inspired by the beauty of water in all its forms, against the historical and architectural beauty of Northwards House, this is a program not to be missed.
