The Concert Series at Wellesley College Presents the Triple Helix Piano Trio
April 7, 2010
Described by The Boston Globe as the “livest live music in town,” The Triple Helix Piano Trio presents the lecture-recital, "Yankee Ingenuity: Daring to Do Strange and Bold Things," with Professor Lawrence Rosenwald of Wellesley's English department. The group will look at the ways in which the seeds of European Romanticism took root in America, manifesting itself in Yankee Ingenuity. The musicians will revel in music by composers who sprang from American soil and who were keen on giving voice to the American ethos in music, distilling the heartbeat and essence of a vigorous young land of mystery, beauty, and rugged individualism. Program will include: William Bolcom’s Violin Sonata No. 2, Aaron Copland’s Twelve Poems of Emily Dickinson, Charles Ives’ Piano Trio, and a world premiere by Howard Frazin.
