“Portraits in Sound”
Like expert painters whose colored canvases capture the array of human experiences, composers of instrumental music capture the ear and the imagination of the listener with melody and harmony as their medium. Join the Ann Street Trio as they present a variety of colorful portraits: from the fire and heroism nascent in early Beethoven to Mademoiselle Tailleferre’s cool post-war nostalgia for the Parisian Belle Époque. This evening of music promises to delight — enjoy with a glass of champagne to match Poulenc’s effervescent trio or some whiskey for those who prefer the boldness and American stick-to-itiveness of Mucyznski (Moo-CHIN-ski).
Ludwig Beethoven – – – Trio Op. 1, No. 1
