Nico Muhly – Music from The Reader
Elliot Carter – "Au Quai" for bassoon and viola
Tchaikovsky – Souvenir de Florence
The lush romanticism of Tchaikovsky‘s passionately Italianate Souvenir, and the cinematically sumptuous music of Nico Muhly, whose skyrocketing global career makes him the current star of the new music scene, surround the sharp jagged edges of Elliot Carter‘s "Au Quai". A program of contrasts and juxtapositions.
