3.9.19 TRIBUTE – Radius Ensemble, Ensemble-in-Residence

Saturday • March 9, 2019   |   8:00 pm

Edward M. Pickman Concert Hall, 8:00 pm
In 1914, Maurice Ravel started planning a suite honoring the memory of the composer François Couperin, but after the war the significance shifted, and each movement of Le Tombeau de Couperin was dedicated to the memory of a fallen friend. Langston Hughes was a descendent of slaves who rose to become a leading figure in the Harlem Renaissance and one of America’s great poets. Composer Valerie Coleman interweaves music with selections from Hughes’s poetry in Portraits of Langston. Special guest narrator to be announced. Joan Tower’s Red Maple is scored for bassoon and strings, a lyrical work bursting with color. Plus, the premiere of a new work by the winner of the Pappalardo Composition Competition.
