Out of the Silence: A Celebration of Music – Program Three
SEPTEMBER 19, 2020
Saturday at 5:30 PM
Presented by The Orchestra Now, Bard Music Festival, and Bard College Conservatory of Music
Program Three opens with the Adagio trágico by Roque Cordero, who infused twelve-tone writing with the folk rhythms of his native Panama.
In his Four Novelettes, Anglo-African late-Romantic composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor demonstrates graceful lyricism with a light, balletic touch that is almost reminiscent of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, subject of the festival’s 1998 season, whose soulful Serenade for Strings concludes the concert.
