Nov. 9th program includes:
Lawrence Moss: Flutepaths
James Piorkowski: “Once Was Lost…”
Christopher Theofanidis: On the Edge of the Infinite
H. Leslie Adams: Amazing Grace
Michael Colgrass: Winds of Nagual
Solo flute entices, with electronics, in Flutepaths by Lawrence Moss, and then the first of two works relate to the hymn "Amazing Grace." James Piorkowski's subtle variations "Once Was Lost…" are for solo guitar.
Christopher Theofanidis's large-breathed On the Edge of the Infinite, for violin and orchestra, brings us to Amazing Grace by Leslie Adams. While the title is familiar, both the music and the words are by Adams.Michael Colgrass bases the Winds of Nagual on Carlos Castaneda's mystic writings from the Mexican wilderness. Hallucinations and shape-shifting lead to a leap into the abyss, which explodes into a thousand views of the world.
