The second concert of the Kingston Chamber Music Festival, “Early Morning, Theater and Romance,” will be held at 7:30 PM on Friday, July 27 and will be preceded by a free pre-concert talk by composer Eliane Aberdam. Aberdam, a professor of music at the University of Rhode Island, will speak at 6:30 PM before the performance of her Grisailles Vaporeuses for violin, cello, and piano. Elaine Aberdam was born in France, where she received her early education in piano, solfege, and harmony at the Conservatoire National de Region in Grenoble. She is a prolific and diverse composer whose compositions have been premiered in Szombathely, Hungary, France, Israel and throughout the US. The program also includes Guastavino’s Tres Romances Argentinos followed by Milhaud’s “Scaramouche,” both of which are duets featuring pianists Natalie Zhu and Astral’s 2017 National Audition winner-Ronaldo Rolim. Finally, a full octet including Formosa Quartet violinist Jasmine Lin will perform Bruch’s String Octet in B-flat Major.
