for that transforming touch
February 6 - February 7, 2010
Something old, something new, something borrowed…the art of transformation is a practice as old as music itself. Libby Larsen weaves lute songs throughout her song cycle on last words of Henry VIII’s wives, Sarasate’s Carmen Fantasy for violin & piano recaptures the thrill of Bizet’s opera, and even Brahms’ beloved Piano Quintet existed in two forms before the enduring work we know today. Don’t miss this revelatory concert of musical makeovers!
