Curtis Institute of Music On The Air: Samuel Barber Centenary Celebration
Sunday, September 5
3 to 5 pm
Did you miss the Curtis Contemporary Music Ensemble's celebration of Samuel Barber's 100th birthday last March? We've got it! Tune in for works by Barber, including a fragment of his 1928 Violin Sonata, long believed lost. The recently discovered third movement is paired with two pieces it inspired: Curtis graduate Jonathan Holland's Sonata Variation, and student Chris Rogerson's Lullaby: no bad dreams. The pieces are presented together to form a complete violin sonata created by three generations of composers nurtured at Curtis. Other works on the program include Barber's Hermit Songs, Dover Beach, Piano Sonata in E-flat minor, and Summer Music.
