Be Ready for Magnificence.

7pm Friday, October 25

Important note: This concert will be held at Sanctuary Covenant Church because the Capri is closed for construction.

Program (approximate length 1 hour)

Fanmi Imen for Flute and Piano, Valerie Coleman

Septet for Trumpet, Strings and Piano, Camille Saint-Saëns.    

Bass Quintet, Antonín Dvořák’

Dvořák’s Bass Quintet (known as such because of the unusual addition of the double bass to the standard string quartet) was written at a very productive and happy time for the young composer, and earned him top prize in the Prague-based Artistic Circle Competition. Saint-Saëns also explores an unusual instrumentation in his Septet, which adds prominent trumpet and virtuosic piano parts. The program opens with a flute and piano work by Valerie Coleman inspired by the poetry of Maya Angelou.
