Program: The performance is in two parts with a short intermission.

The first part consists of an interwoven sequence of poetry by Denis Levertov and the Sonata for Violin and Cello by Maurice Ravel. The outspoken beauty of this poetry acutely reflects the consciousness of our time in its spiritual meaning and in its bold structure. It is truly prophetic poetry for the 21st century. The composition by Maurice Ravel presents us with a full palette of feelings in its varied colors and moods: from delicate lyricism to moments of joyful exuberance to expressions of sorrow and pain – all parts of our existence.

The second part of the program continues the exploration of our inner lives: Japanese Tankas (modern, short Haikus) and the Preludes for Violoncello by Sofia Gubaidulina. The Tankas are poignant imaginations of soul events, at times poetic and transcendent and in other instances absurd and humorous.  The pieces for violoncello are contemporary, short and succinct, a lively adventure into new soul and soundscapes.

Public evening performance:  This program is available as a public evening performance. In addition, we can offer the full or partial program to your high school students as a performance/ demonstration and/ or workshop. We are able to draw upon our depth of experience (20 plus years combined) in working with young adults to create an event especially designed for this age group and adjusted to your specific needs and wishes.
