Valerie Coleman: Fanmi Imen for Flute and Piano
Camille Saint-Saëns: Septet for Trumpet, Strings and Piano
Antonín Dvořák: Bass Quintet
Dvořák’s Bass Quintet (known as such because of the unusual addition of the double bass to the standard string quartet) was written at a very productive and happy time for the young composer, and earned him top prize in the Prague based Artistic Circle Competition. Saint-Saëns also explores an unusual instrumentation in his Septet, which adds prominent trumpet and virtuosic piano parts. The program opens with a flute and piano work by Valerie Coleman inspired by the poetry of Maya Angelou.
