A veteran member of the School of Music faculty, Mark Maxwell joins forces with his wife and Northwestern University guitar professor Anne Waller as the Waller and Maxwell Guitar Duo. The Duo partners with theatre artist and historian Fiona Maxwell for a program reflecting on themes of Childhood, Friendship, and Memory.
This performance puts original and adapted storytelling pieces in conversation with works for solo and duo guitar to revive and modernize the lost genre of the nineteenth-century literary and musical entertainment. Mark Maxwell and Anne Waller will perform works by Fernando Sor, Robert Schumann, Toru Takemitsu, Joe Hisaishi, Igor Stravinsky, and Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco.
Fiona Maxwell will share excerpts from her original historical fiction pieces, which are based on archival research and activate an enduring aspect of Chicago history: the creative practices of working-class immigrant young people at settlement houses during the 1890s. Literary adaptations will include selections from P. L. Travers and Juan Ramón Jíménez.
