CRUMB – Eleven Echoes of Autumn for violin, flute, clarinet and piano
DOHNÁNYI – Serenade for string trio, Op. 10
MAZZOLI – Tooth and Nail for viola and electronics
JANÁČEK – Mládí (Youth) for wind sextet
In Eleven Echoes of Autumn, George Crumb explores poet Federico Garcia Lorca’s words, “…and the broken arches where time suffers.” Hungarian Ernő Dohnányi, a contemporary of Bartók, was mentored by Brahms. His Serenade for string trio, written in 1902, is infused with Hungarian harmonies. Missy Mazzoli’s Tooth and Nail is an astonishingly creative interpretation of jaw harp musical traditions in Uzbekistan within a modern electronic context. Mládí (Youth), Leoš Janáček’s sextet for woodwind ensemble, was written in 1924, the year Janáček turned 70. His official biography was also published that year, and these two events sparked a flood of memory and nostalgia. The musical result is a delightful mix of energy and affection.
