Wednesday Noon Hours- Visions of Light and Dark
March 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm$5 – $10
The program begins with Reena Esmail’s ethereal and tender Saans (Breath), with its Indian-inspired improvisatory writing. This is followed by 2 short works commissioned by the Trio for its 20th anniversary, inspired by the image of a triangle: Dorothy Chang’s sparkling Points of Light leads to the shadows of Cindy Cox’s Mysterium Coniunctionis. The program ends with Dmitri Shostakovich’s haunting and devastating Trio in E minor, written during the Second World War as a commemoration of his friend Ivan Sollertinsky, but also inspired by Shostakovich’s horror at the first news of the Nazi death camps.
