Close Encounters: Rhythms, Rhymes And The Kitchen Sink

Now in its 12th year, the Heights Arts Close Encounters series presents chamber music as it was meant to be—up close and personal, in stately residences and unique venues throughout Cleveland.

This afternoon's program entitled Rhythms, Rhymes and the Kitchen Sink features:

Robert Walters, English horn
Drew Pattison, bassoon
Edward “Teddy” Niedermaier, piano
It’s a little-known fact that The Cleveland Orchestra’s Principal English Horn player is also a published poet. Robert Walters shares the Bop Stop stage with Oberlin College’s newest bassoon faculty, Drew Pattison—a graduate of the prestigious Colburn School in Los Angeles—and composer/pianist Teddy Niedermaier—on faculty at Chicago’s Roosevelt University—in a unique program of music and original poetry. The musical journey includes a new trio composed by Teddy in 2016, two rarely-heard romances by Elgar and Sibelius, and Debussy’s thrilling “Rapsodie.”


Jean Sibelius Romance, Opus 24, No. 9 (1903)
