Mystical Reveries

Friday, June 14, 2024
Harkness Chapel (Case Western Reserve University)

This program has a magical quality, with mood shifts and unexpected contrasts filling the soulful gothic elegance of Harkness Chapel. First, a pair of Baroque works for violin and harp. Next, French horn and piano play a work Clara Schumann called “brilliant, fresh and passionate.” The contrasts continue with a set of droll, sardonic miniatures by one of America’s most beloved living composers. Finally, the piano trio by Brahms pairs a symphonic scale and emotional range with the intimate lyricism of chamber music.
