like woven sounds of streams

Life begins with water, nature's greatest force of regeneration and renewal. Join us for an invigorating program of music inspired by water and its sounds, including a rarely-heard seminal work "14 Ways to Describe Rain" by the brilliant German exile Hanns Eisler, one of the first victims of the Hollywood blacklist. Also on the program are Schubert's "Trout" Quintet and two works inspired by the master composer: Dan Welcher's "Mill Songs" for oboe and bassoon; and Dominick Argento's "To be sung upon the water" for soprano, clarinet, and piano.
