Summermusik: The Power of the Muse

Our third Mainstage event, “The Power of the Muse,” celebrates figures who inspire composers to create masterworks.

“Power of the Muse” celebrates figures who inspire composers to create masterworks. Lili Boulanger was an extraordinary French musical prodigy. Inspired by Fauré and Debussy she developed a compelling musical language that is entirely her own. Her D’un Matin de Printemps (Of a Spring Morning) creates an impressionistic sound world that is full of vibrant energy and delicacy. Even before her untimely death at age 24, she succeeded in being the first woman to win the Rome Prize – the most coveted composition prize of the time – making her an inspiration for all female composers to come.

The brilliant Clara Schumann – the muse for her husband Robert, and Johannes Brahms – was recognized as one of the most important pianists of her time. Yet her accomplishments as a composer are still to be rediscovered. Award-winning pianist Vijay Venkatesh is the soloist in her dazzling piano concerto. She was only sixteen years old when she composed this concerto as a showcase for herself: bold, passionate, and imaginative.

Full of  passion and joy of life, Alma Mahler was a prolific composer and musician. Yet she had no support in being a creative, independent woman in Vienna. Instead she is remembered as a muse, supporter and lover to brilliant, creative men – like her husband Gustav. Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 4 is full of light and love. It describes a bright cheerfulness reflective of the unearthly joy of heavenly life. “Silver-voiced soprano” Victoria Okafor will join the CCO in this inspired symphonic masterpiece.
