‘Touched by an Angel: Music Powered by Love
We celebrate the new year and winter with this chamber music program powered by love. Artistic Director Kathryn Lockwood brings three couples together to highlight love. Pianist Rieko Aizawa and her husband and violinist Jesse Mills, violinist Hyeyung Yoon and her husband, cellist Gregory Beaver; and of course the ensemble in residence and married duo, Kathryn Lockwood and Yousif Sheronick, duoJalal.
We’ll explore the love stories behind Robert Schumann and César Franck, plus feature traditional Chinese Love songs as a nod to celebrate the Chinese New Year, and begin the program celebrating Black History Month with Maya Angelou’s Poem “Touched by an Angel”. Other composers include Bach and Clementi, cellist and composer in residence Gregory Beaver and GRAMMY Award-winning & MacArthur “Genius” Fellow Dafnis Prieto.
The program will afford the opportunity to marvel that the universe can be united and strengthened with love and music, easily bending like a single bamboo in order to bring humanity together.
Composers: Schumann, Franck, Bach, Clementi, Beaver, Prieto, Zhou Long
