Featuring Gabrielius Alekna, piano
Sofia Gubaidulina and Shelley Washington both organized their works around Sol (the pitch G), but they go in remarkably different directions. Gubaidulina probes the question “existence vs. essence” whereas Washington explores a place she calls “Home of the Heart, Heart of the Home.” Revered Polish composer Graźyna Bacewicz, a woman, gave us one of the best piano quintets of the era: romantic, dramatic, forward-looking. The evening, and the season, starts with a quartet by Haydn, reviving a Ciompi tradition!
- Franz Joseph Haydn: String Quartet in C Major, Op. 74 #1
- Sofia Gubaidulina: String Quartet #2 (1987)
- Shelley Washington: Middleground for String Quartet (2017)
- Graźyna Bacewicz: Piano Quintet #1 (1952) with Gabrielius Alekna, piano
