Through the juxtaposition of pieces in styles chronologically, culturally and linguistically at odds with each other--yet heard in direct contrast to each other--the program tonight aspires to open your ears and to allow you to experience music it in a new way. In programming tonight’s concert: from the figments of thought flashing through the mind of Carter, to a highly original sonata by Barriere, to the open and flat Hungarian landscape of Ligeti’s cello sonata, to a contrapuntally and sequentially built trio sonata, to a simply pleasing, and enjoyable Telemann concerto.
