The "Heart Songs" concert features works by some of the great romantic era composers: Brahms, Schumann and Bruch. Rounding out the program are works by Gershwin, (including JoAnn performing some fantastic songs) Shostakovich movie tunes, and Celtic melodies. Oh, and of course a beautiful bit of Beethoven!
"Heart Songs" will make your heart beat a little faster, allow your imagination to roam freely, and bring your memories in a little closer. You won't want to miss this exceptional evening of chamber music.
As a special treat for the audience a guest violist Melissa Lyans will join the ensemble. Adding the viola allows the presentation of two of the best loved romantic works in the chamber music repertoire - the gorgeous Andante from the Brahms Op. 60 Piano Quartet and selections from Bruch's charming set of Eight Pieces for Clarinet, Viola and Piano, Op. 83.
