New Encounters
Music for lots of winds & strings + World Premiere

New encounters with determined artistry. Sometimes a great piece ends up in the Lost and Found of history, and this program features two of the greatest to be found, along with a commission by a new resident of St. Louis, Darwin Aquino. Coleridge-Taylor, whose mother was English and his father of African-American heritage, was one of the brightest rising starts of Europe when he died young. Louise Farrenc demanded to be paid as much as her male peers when her Nonet rocketed her to fame, but fell back into obscurity after her death. Her music is rightfully regaining the recognition it deserves.
