Strange Interlude Summer Musings I: Harp and Cello Music

Sat, August 1, 2020 4:00 PM, PDT

Come enjoy some harp and cello music from your friendly neighborhood Strange Interlude! While we miss so incredibly much performing in rooms full of real live human people, we are so grateful that Groupmuse offers us the ability to share our programs with audiences near and far. Sit back, pour yourself a cool beverage and enjoy some harp and cello sounds from Lily Press, harpist and Simon Linn-Gerstein, cellist.
Hope to see you there!

Program

Strange Interlude Harp and Cello

Kaley Lane Eaton: subtle energy
Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco: Sonata for Cello & Harp, Op. 208
Ravi Shankar: Sonata No. 1 for Cello & Harp

Spoken text for subtle energy
(from The Myth of Human Supremacy by Derrick Jensen):

there is matter space and time (without them there is nothing)
there is nuclear fusion (developed by the sun and other stars)
there is gravity and other forms of attraction
there is motion (developed by the first entities who moved)
there is electricity, which was not developed by humans
there is homeostasis
there is sunshine
there is fire
there is water
there are oceans
there are rivers
there are springs
there are rocks!
there is metabolism!
there is cell division
there is oxygen combustion
there is sexual reproduction
there are butterflies
there are fireflies
there are the fall colors of trees
there is that light green of new growth on trees
there is the sound of feet on dry leaves on a forest floor
there are feet
there are cilia
and there are eyes.
blood. sap. water. dreams. silence. harmony. Anger. sorrow. joy.

This was another spectacular concert!! The range of your repertoire astounds me. I couldn't imagine hearing Ravi Shankar played on a cello!! WOW. Your dedication to supporting superb female composers is a joy. Thank you so much. I'm already looking forward to your next GroupMuse event at the end of August.
