Duke Performances Presents: Soleil Noir
February 19, 2022Free
An exhilarating journey across time, place, and vastly different artistic sensibilities. Duke composer John Supko’s 2020 quartet, commissioned by the Ciompi, receives its first live performance; pianist Ieva Jokubaviciute joins the quartet for a major work by the Soviet composer Miecyslaw Weinberg; and the Quartet revives a favorite piece by mid-century American, William Grant Still. The concert begins with a suite from the English renaissance by John Dowland.
John Dowland: Suite of Songs (arranged for piano quintet by Andrew Waggoner)
Miecyslaw Weinberg: Piano Quintet, Op. 18 (1945)
John Supko: Soleil Noir (2020)
William Grant Still: Lyric Quartette (1960)
