Repertoire 2016 Adult Chamber Music Theme: Muß es sein?— es Muß sein! This exciting new year in Chamber Music will culminate at Interlochen with the lofty, yet direct theme: Muß es sein?— es Muß sein! Beethoven in posing the tantalizing question “Must it be?”; answers his own probing query with the emphatic, “It must be!” This multi-pronged concept will be amply explored throughout the week in the repertoire studied, played and performed by both participants and faculty. When considering the finite time allotted to us all and no matter what stage of life, we need to actively develop our “bucket lists” to include those experiences both new or revisited that we determine are of the greatest value. Often composers near the conclusion of their careers are keenly aware of their urgent priorities, contributions and legacies; and as such, those representative works will figure prominently in the offerings for the week. Our class presentations and discussions of pedagogical issues will both ratify and question long-held ideas about how best to approach playing our instruments in the healthiest and most effective ways. You will be encouraged to ask your own burning musical and technical questions so that we can enjoy a lively dialogue toward greater understanding even if perhaps no definitive answer exists. Provided we can accommodate and organize your requests, we are interested in ticking off some of the items on your bucket list in this summer’s stimulating Interlochen Adult Chamber Music Camp! 2016 Adult Chamber Music Camp Repertoire is forthcoming and will be posted early in 2016.
