I am so delighted to revisit the song cycle, Songs of Time, of Love, of Wonder, for this concert. Douglas Johnson, a long-time friend and colleague from California, wrote this 5-song cycle in 1995 for me, on texts chosen by Aina and me–May Sarton, Emily Dickinson and a Latvian folk poet. We have recorded these songs professionally (see recordings page if you’re interested).
Now, Douglas is reworking the songs to include a bit of viola in some of the songs, which make it even more satisfying to include on a Mockingbird Trio program.
And we are revisiting Eric Sawyer’s Levertov Songs, along with songs of other composers from our original Poet Power concert. Because May 7 is Brahms’ birthday (don’t you all celebrate your favorite composers’ birthdays?), we’ll include some of his works as well.
And John McDonald will likely play some of his fabulous solo piano pieces.
Come join us for a lovely hour of chamber music and still have enough daylight to take a walk in the Arboretum!
please note we have postponed the opera, 334 Bunnies to next year. It will be a hoppin’ production when it arrives…
