a little phrase of eternal song: Schumann, Hindemith, Webern, Grime, Dvorak
March 17, 2013
The master of brevity, Webern could invest a single gesture with a world of expression, and Dvorák translated fleeting thoughts and the spirit of folk music into his beloved "Dumky" trio. They say good things come in small packages, and this program proves it with miniatures that make maximum impact.
