Three Salonnières: Alma Mahler
Sarah Reynolds, mezzo-soprano
Andrew Konopak, baritone
Twyla Meyer, piano

This year's Mansions & Music series explores three notable salonnières of the 19th and 20th centuries, beginning with Alma Mahler onOctober 25. Alma Mahler maintained a social circle that included numerous composers of her day: Gustav Mahler (also her first husband), Alexander von Zemlinsky, Alban Berg, and Erich Wolfgang Korngold. The Mahler salonwill feature songs by Alma Mahler herself, as well asSongs of a Wayfarer by G. Mahler,"Pierrot's Tanzlied" fromDie Tote Stadtby Korngold, songs from Walzer-Gesänge, Op. 6 by Zemlinsky, and songs fromSeven Early Songsby Berg.

Renowned architects Marston, Van Pelt and Maybury originally named this Italianate estate Casa Contenta"the happy home." Built in 1922 and restored in 2015, this stately residence is rich in architectural detail and character and exudes Mediterranean charm. The home features a grand entry hall with boxed beamed high ceilings, arched French doors and large windows that frame garden vistas, and a loggia adjoining a sprawling lawn. It is a serene setting for a Sunday afternoon concert and reception. The property is owned by Mr. Spencer Tien.

October 22, 2015 at 7 p.m.

Join the artists on October 22 for a behind-the-scenes look at pieces on the concert program. Part open rehearsal, part lecture-demonstration, preludes provide an intimate opportunity for music loversfrom connoisseurs to newbiesto learn more about the repertoire, composers, and historical context of the programs from the performers themselves. Preludes are designed to enhance one's musical understanding of Mansions concerts, and to also be accessible and engaging even for those unable to attend the actual Mansions concert.

Preludes are held at the Conservatory in Barrett Hall. Admission is free for Mansions & Music sponsors, $15 for the general public, and $10 for PCM students. Reservations required (
