Hervey White , poet, novelist and art colony founder, was a chamber-music devotee of the first order. He envisioned summer concerts at an ideal venue nestled in the Catskills. And then, gradually piecing together the land, the money and the labor, he built it. It had to be rustic. It had to offer a haven, a chapel, with world-class acoustics. It had to offer world-class musicians performing world-class music — and if, as it turned out, some of those musicians threw hissy-fits over teapots, so be it. "The better a musician is, the more readily he becomes enraged," he told The New York... That long-ago piece described White as hairy and determined, a Thoreau-like figure "washing out his best purple sateen Russian blouse. " It quoted the man on his mission: "Chamber music, by its nature, is degraded except when it is given by selected musicians in a rustic music chapel among tall trees at the foot of a hill. He died in 1944, but Maverick lives on as a mecca for high-quality music with a sylvan backdrop, and it now ranks as the oldest continuously running summer chamber series in the country. In the decades since White first welcomed musicians and music-lovers to his spread in the woods, the concerts have offered a fusion of old and new, American and European, traditional and cutting-edge. Such globe-trotting instrumentalists as the Tokyo String Quartet routinely perform there each summer, citing its pure devotion to the form. As pianist Edward Chiu put it: "The acoustics are great, the people are great, and I think it's a great size. The bucolic chapel has hosted plenty of world premieres over the years, including four this summer to celebrate its centenary. In 1952, John Cage wrote "4'33" — the experimental work that found the sound in silence — for a Maverick program, sitting quietly at a piano while the natural world (and maybe a few audience members) stirred and sighed ambient noise through the... Saturday's double-pianist program is, he said, "the kind of concert that made the Maverick — very traditional but creative, inventive, envelope-pushing," said Alexander Platt , conductor and Maverick artistic director. Built by locals from local timber, the simple wooden hall seats around 230 indoors and maybe another 150 on outdoor benches when weather cooperates. The hall has maintained its focus on chamber music, adding folk, readings, family fare and other events, including, this year, a Saturday-night jazz series. ("Jazz is chamber music," Platt said). And it's maintained its timeless feel through modest and gradual upgrades. Electricity came late, introduced with night programming a little over a quarter-century ago. Running water was even later to the party, arriving "about five years ago — one of my proudest achievements," Platt said. Online ticket sales are another recent addition, though "you can absolutely show up at the box office and slap your twenty on the table. Costs are covered through ticket sales, public funding, family foundations and private donors. Not much else has changed since the days of the purple-bloused founder. Running water aside, "It is absolutely the hall that Hervey White built 100 years ago. "It's absolute simplicity," Platt said. "It's a devotion to the greatest performances of the greatest music in the greatest setting for summer chamber music in America. Source: www.timesunion.com
