Violinist Claudia Schaer and pianist Helen Lin will return to the National Opera Center after last year’s packed-house concert with an evening of vividly evocative recent music, including the world premiere of a composition by Lawrence Kramer, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor at Fordham University.
The program will explore the power of music to conjure up feelings of place and space, from John Adams’ depiction of the quintessentially American open road, to Matthew Peterson’s portrait of a spirit-haunted stream, to Kramer’s evocations of landscapes enlivened by cloud shadows and light on water. The evening will conclude by turning back the clock to Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s festive take on a Shakespeare comedy.
Free admission. Donations welcome.
This event is open to alumni, faculty/staff, students, and the public.
