Valerie Coleman       Portraits of Langston (selections)
Andre Previn            Four Songs for soprano, cello and piano (selections)

Not your grandpa's storytelling. Contemporary stories and old legends retold by living composers fill this vibrant program. Valerie Coleman, brings the words of Langston Hughes to life with electric rhythms influenced by jazz. Also influenced by Jazz, Stravinsky's trio arrangement of his legendary A Soldier's Tale warns of making deals with the devil. Andre Previn sets the words of Toni Morrison to music. With Syrian-American Roustom's telling of an Arabic folk tale set to music, we hear the influences of traditional sounds of Lebanon, Palestine and Syria woven into a sweeping story of love, loss and faith.

Essence: We ask in this program, what are the aspects of a homeland defining its true impact on you, the individual? This program will feature our first commission of the season by Adam Maness with a piece called The Delmar Wall. With Ligeti, we will hear a composer released from the constraints of communism finally free to express the rhythm of his homeland. Bartok and Dvorak capture the spirit of their countries in every tune they wrote. The program concludes with the masterwork by the great German composer, Brahms, who's music is the quintessential sound of his time and place.
