We are excited to present a program of works that span the 20th and 21st Centuries, and moves west from Budapest across the Atlantic, and lands in New Jersey. Budapest was home to both Béla Bartók and György Kósa. Kósa, was a student of Bartók, Dohnányi, Zoltán Kodály and later, Viktor Herzfeld. Composed in 1941, the influence of all are audible in his beautiful Trio for flute, viola and cello — though you can also hear his own individual voice. We are excited to present both Kósa’s Trio, as well as our own arrangement of Bartók’s Romanian Dances.
Our first stop west is France, home to Charles Koechlin. This lovely Trio was originally scored for winds, but the composer also included alternate parts for strings. West and a bit north, is Wales, childhood home to Hilary Tann. The Walls of Morlais Castle evokes both the ruins of the castle in the Welsh countryside as it currently stands and images of its robust past. Finally, we arrive back in the New World, where we are very excited to present the New York Premiere of our current Featured Composer David Bennett Thomas’s Three to Get Ready, which he wrote for our Trio earlier this year.
We hope you can join us. Tickets are available here, both in person and for on line streaming.
