OLIVER KNUSSEN Masks for Flute & Glass Chimes ad libitum, Op. 3
ELGAR Piano Quintet in A Minor, Op. 84
BRAHMS Liebeslieder Waltzes
Brahms looks at love from all sides in his Liebeslieder Waltzes: happy, sad, jealous, passionate—you name it—set to lilting waltz rhythms and performed by four fabulous singers—Sarah Shafer, soprano; Kelley O'Connor, mezzo-soprano; Ben Bliss, tenor; and David Kravitz, baritone; and a pair of stellar pianists, Pei-Yao Wang and Haochen Zhang. Plus Elgar’ lush Piano Quintet and Oliver Knussen’s Masks, in which Tara Helen O’Connor has a few surprises up her flute-bearing sleeves.
Bliss, Kavafian, B. Kim, E. Kim, Kravitz, K. O’Connor, T. O'Connor, Shafer, Tenenbom, P. Wang, Zhang
