    Music of Joy, Sorrow, and Stillness

    Presented by at Brookline Music School

    May 21, 2012


    Music of Joy, Sorrow, and Stillness

    Join BMS faculty pianist Valerie Ross, violinist Aubrey Burdick, and tenor Joshua Pelkey for "Music of Joy, Sorrow, and Stillness," a recital exploring the wide range of expression possible in art music.

    The evening opens with a joyous suite of ancient dances written by J.S. Bach, followed by Messsiaen's transcendent Theme and Variations for violin and piano. From there, the program takes a more meditative turn with John Cage's peaceful "In a Landscape" and Marco Simoni's "Echi", a short piece of echoing chords interspersed with explosive, dance-like outbursts. The evening will close with excerpts from Schubert's heart-broken "Winter's Journey" for tenor and piano and one of Gabriel Faure's beautifully tragic Nocturnes for solo piano. Admission is free, and a brief reception will follow.
