Mary and pianist Vivian Choi perform Aaron Copland's Twelve Dickinson Songs on the second concert of Chameleon's 20th Anniversary season.
- Lili Boulanger, D’un matin de printemps for flute & piano (1918)
- Augusta Read Thomas, Rumi Settings for violin & viola
- Aaron Copland, Twelve Poems of Emily Dickinson for soprano & piano
- Joseph Schwantner, Music of Amber for flute, clarinet, violin, cello, piano & percussion
- Maurice Ravel, Piano Trio in a minor
Music and poetry are natural companions, following language and cadence to express inner worlds. Copland’s lustrous settings perfectly capture the lyrical rhythms of Emily Dickinson, Augusta Read Thomas channels a 900-year old verse, and Ravel adopts a form of Malaysian poetry for his magnificent Piano Trio.
