Voice of the Whale
SCHUBERT Sonatina No. 1 in D Major for Violin & Piano, D. 384
DEBUSSY Sonata for Violin & Piano
GEORGE CRUMB Vox balaenae (Voice of the Whale) for Three Masked Players
The first program on the Festival’s brand-new Music at Noon Wednesdays Series includes Schubert’s Sonatina No. 1, Debussy’s Violin Sonata (his last major work), and George Crumb’s Vox balaenae (Voice of the Whale) for Three Masked Players. Crumb wrote that, “by effacing a sense of human projection,” the black half-masks he asks the musicians to wear “symbolize the powerful impersonal forces of nature (nature dehumanized).”
