Music From Yellow Barn
The World of the Spirit and the Consciousness of the Poetic Mind: The String Quartets of Robert Schumann
Over the course of two evenings, in two distinct concerts, the performance of Schumann's three quartets, intertwined with wisps of Schumann's own sketches for these works and the music of Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven from which he took inspiration, sheds light on how we define what is "new" in art, and why that is important.

Songs Of Our World: Three Voices of Our Last 100 Years
“I believe that Music — even if it cannot be ‘sung’ — is song nevertheless; it is neither philosophy nor a world view, it is the song of the world about itself, as if it were a musical testimony to existence.” —Valentin Silvestroy
Valentin Silvestrov's words resonate throughout this program of discovery, parable, and memory. Soundings celebrates the music of these three distinct voices of our time.
