Yarilo Ensemble Concert Series 2011
The Yarilo Ensemble has scheduled four concerts for this its inaugural season. In keeping with its name, Yarilo, a god of Spring and Summer, our concerts are set for the early summer months:
May 29 – “Für Nikolai – Time and Again…” is the name of our first concert paying tribute to composer and friend on the tenth anniversary of his untimely passing. On the program will be Korndorf’s haunting “Lullaby” for Two pianos, his beautiful “Triptych” for Cello and Piano, with guest Ariel Barnes on cello, Canadian composer Jocelyn Morlock’s poignant tribute to Korndorf: “Half-Light and Somnolent Rains” for two pianos, and Giya Kancheli’s “Time and Again…” for violin and piano, with guest Marc Destrubé on violin.
June 19 – Be sure to attend or tune in to the Pocket Orchestra’s concert titled “Modus Operandi”.
June 26 – “Path to Simplicity”. The Yarilo Ensemble will present a concert of the Estonian composer Lepo Sumera along with his contemporaries Arvo Pärt and Gheorghi Arnaoudov.
July 10 – “The Classics”. Duo pianists Jane Hayes and Anna Levy will serve up a concert of familiar music for two pianos. On the program the “Variations on a Theme of Haydn” by Johannes Brahms, the “Paganini Variations” by Witold Lutoslawski, and Sergei Rachmaninoff’s monumental “Symphonic Dances” in the version for two pianos.
Refreshments will be served after all concerts.
