Strings and harp make for a magical sonic world. Join us for four beautifully atmospheric works. The program is framed by two French works—one that looks back to the conventions of 19th-century virtuoso concert music, and the other firmly planted in the values of supple 20th-century Modernism and Impressionism. In between are Estonian Arvo Pärt’s meditative Spiegel im Spiegel, and American Arthur Foote’s lovely and charming At Dusk.
Sunday, February 6, 2022 | 3pm | Evocations
While 18th-century music was concerned with proportion and order, the 19th century often embraced the music that evoked the wild beauty of nature. American Amy Beach’s lovely Romance and Frenchman Debussy’s L’isle joyeuse are both, in their own way, evocations of the natural world. Brahms’s Horn Trio, too, evokes nature. The horn has always been emblematic of humans’ relationship with nature—an instrument played outdoors—on a hunt or to communicate across long distances. In his trio, German composer Brahms writes more for the horn’s generous lyrical capabilities than its heroic ones, creating a unique masterpiece of the chamber music repertoire.
Sunday, March 6, 2022 | 3pm | Virtuoso Voices
The performance begins with a lovely string quartet by Florence Price, a trail-blazing African-American composer, who chipped away at convention and expectation with a distinctly American and immediately appealing voice. The performance concludes with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, an Austrian composer who wrote with the human voice at the center of his music. His sense of drama, ability to tell a story, and extraordinary gift of melody are always primary features of his music. The clarinet, embedded in an all-string environment, makes for one of the repertoire’s most gratifying sonic landscapes—navigated with breathtaking expertise, tenderness, and wit by an ailing master.
