Program Notes: Notes in a New Key
You will see that the following program notes are different. They’ve been written while listening to the pieces they describe and provide one listener’s emotional connection to these works. If freedom to compose is at the heart of tonight’s concert, as well as freedom to perform and freedom to listen, then these notes should be an invitation, a welcoming. The hope is that these notes will help you appreciate why these pieces are worth your attention and, more important, will help you enjoy them.
[The program notes for this concert are now in preparation. Thank you for your patience.]
