Early Music Concerts 2010-2011: (NY) New Music for the Band (2011 June 05)
Elodie's two songs ( Poem or Proem* and The Exotic World of Speed and Beauty) as well as Eugene's Sonnet 76* feature our redoubtable countertenor Marshall Coid,with accompaniments by the entire ensemble. Michael Cohen selected the same instrumentation for his Fantasie *(flute, oboe, cello and harpsichord) that Elliot Carter used in his famous harpsichord quartet. Kemp's Sinfonia Concertante* resembles a mini-concerto for harpsichord and strings while MacDonald's Sonata da Camera* brings The Queen's Chamber Trio (Zubrycki, Seidenberg & Comparone) together for a Stravinsky-influenced "hoe-down." Marsha Heller's warm and expressive oboe-playing illumines Baksa's Sonata for Oboe and Harpsichord.**
Additional QCB participants include flutist Karla Moe, violinist Lori Abbott, guest violist, Julie Goodale and returning favorite, guest bassist Tomoya Aomori.
