MUSIC W/O BORDERS: BACKWARD GLANCES

Saturday, October 16, 2021 7:30pm

Event Description

Scored for three solo instruments (flute, oboe, and trumpet) and strings, the Capricorn Concerto is an early work by Barber that was strongly influenced by Bach. Schulhoff flips the numbers and the winds outnumber the strings inverting the Baroque era concerto grosso form. Charming, witty, and disarmingly simple, the music of Pulcinella reflects Stravinsky’s inspiration gathered from the music of the past.

Samuel BARBER:  Capricorn Concerto
Erwin SCHULHOFF:  Concerto for String Quartet and Wind Orchestra
Igor STRAVINSKY:  Suite from Pulcinella

TEDDY ABRAMS, conductor
