Join BMS faculty pianist Valerie Ross, violinist Aubrey Burdick, and tenor Joshua Pelkey for "Music of Joy, Sorrow, and Stillness," a recital exploring the wide range of expression possible in art music. The evening opens with a joyous suite of ancient dances written by J.S. Bach, followed by Messsiaen's transcendent Theme and Variations for violin and piano. From there, the program takes a more meditative turn with John Cage's peaceful "In a Landscape" and Marco Simoni's "Echi", a short piece of echoing chords interspersed with explosive, dance-like outbursts. The evening will close with excerpts from Schubert's heart-broken "Winter's Journey" for tenor and piano and one of Gabriel Faure's beautifully tragic Nocturnes for solo piano. Admission is free, and a brief reception will follow.
