Time, Hope & Rebirth –
Where we are with what we know, to the unknown of where we are going. In this moment music conjures memory and emotions, quieting the mind for a dance or a hope, and maybe, when we are lucky, it softens the world around us. Transformations in music are a constant. From the instrumentation and genre to the effects on the composer, performer(s) and listeners.
From Barrios' last work inspired by a passing beggar, a 21st century lullaby, a Spanish dance, a place where our minds quiet, to a 13th century legend and much in between.
It will be an exciting concert. Thank you for partaking in the new adventure. Come with questions. I may not have answers beyond the music.
