Featuring Joseph Haydn’s “Trio for piano, violin and cello in B-flat major,” among Haydn’s most harmonically adventurous works.
Performed by Ann Polonsky, piano, James Wilson, cello, and Carmit Zori, violin.
APRIL 5 7:30 P.M.
CHANTICLEER in their only Brooklyn performance presenting –
The moon – the symbol in song, story, poetry and legend of powerful and mysterious female energy which determines and regulates so much of life on our planet.
Magnificent early statements by Monteverdi, di Lasso, Desprez and Parsons give way to the more romantic yearnings of Elgar and Mahler. Equally fascinated are contemporary composers such as Mäntyjärvi, Paulus, Muhly and Bates, whose compositions for Chanticleer are audience favorites.
Over the Moon will include treatments of jazz standards by Mancini and Bart Howard, and more recent songs by Elbow and others. “Three Moon Songs” newly written for Chanticleer by internationally acclaimed composer Nico Muhly will be featured
