Event description

Description

The Chelsea Symphony presents its chamber concert series, REFLECTION, featuring two pieces written during the two world wars. Ravel's Tombeau de Couperin was written as a set of Baroque-inspired pieces in memoriam for six friends (or in one movement, for two brothers) who perished during World War I. The light-hearted nature of the work belies the somber inspiration; of the work, Ravel said, "the dead are sad enough, in their eternal silence."

Paired with this is a piece by French composer Fernande Breilh-Decruck, Cinq poèmes chrétiens (Five Christian Pieces) for voice and orchestra with text by French poet Jean Racine. Written and performed in 1944 in occupied France, she was afforded performance opportunities for her works she would not otherwise have had. After the war, she was shunned and died at an early age. Decruck has special ties to The Chelsea Symphony - she lived in the London Terrace apartments in Chelsea from 1928-33; TCS co-Artistic Director Matthew Aubin is the foremost scholar on Decruck and is leading the charge on a resurgence in interest in her work.

On Friday's concert are the Haydn Trumpet Concerto featuring Stephen Lyons and a world premiere work by two members with a long connection to TCS - composer Benjamin Brody presents a world premiere for bassist Nicholas Lenchner. A world premiere by TCS composer Tim Kiah opens the performance.

Concert will be held at St. Paul's German Lutheran Church, 315 West 22nd Street
