Chameleon Arts Ensemble: of voice and verse

  • First Church in Boston 66 Marlborough Street Boston, MA, 02116 United States (map)

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.
