World-class musicians from the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra will perform English, French and American gems of the chamber music repertoire in Across the Channel.
The program opens with a Serenade for Flute and Harp by American composer Vincent Persichetti, consisting of eight highly-characterized movements that evoke styles of other times. André Caplet’s Conte fantastique for Harp and String Quartet was inspired by Edgar Allen Poe’s The Masque of the Red Death, and evokes the mood and action of the story in ingenious ways. William Walton’s String Quartet in A Minor closes the program in traditional English fashion.
