Violinist Gil Morgenstern’s Reflections Series International presents Part I of Music: So What’s the Story? – a new programming initiative which explores music as narrative. Morgenstern will be joined by cellist Ole Akahoshi & pianist Rieko Aizawa to perform works that are reflective of each composer’s personal narrative. Janacek’s Sonata for Violin and Piano is a composition whose catalyst was the agitation and passionate emotions of WWI; Grieg’s lighthearted Wedding Day at Troldhaugen depicts the “congratulations and best wishes” that are given by guests to newlyweds; and Smetana’s Piano Trio in g minor is autobiographical work that was motivated by the death of his eldest daughter.
$40 General; $20 Student.
