Emerald City Music: Reverie
April 23 at 7:00 pm - May 22 at 8:00 pm PDT$20
Emerald City Music’s musicians and filmmakers have come together to bring you eclectic chamber music experiences right in the comfort of your own home.
This month’s program, Reverie, kicks off with Beethoven’s Serenade for flute, violin and viola; an informal piece where the composer displays his charming creativity in presenting an ensemble in which there is no bass voice. Saint-Saëns evocative Fantaisie follows, a stunning late-Romantic work that – while resisting the rising modernist tendencies of most other French composers of the day – displays the depths of his hyper-romantic vision of the future of music. Debussy’s Sonata for Flute, Viola, and Harp concludes the program. The Sonata is one of six that Debussy endeavored to write for pairings of various instruments, finishing three before he died of cancer at the onset of World War I.
Artists: Tara Helen O’Connor (flute), Bridget Kibbey (harp), Kristin Lee (violin), Paul Neubauer (viola)
