Embark on a fantastic journey to faraway places. Robert Schumann's rarely-heard Märchenbilder (Fairy Tale Pictures) for Viola and Piano evokes a world of childlike imagination. Paul Schoenfield described the second movement of his Klezmer-infused Trio for Violin, Clarinet and Piano as "somewhat diabolical." The program continues with two works for solo instrument: Pierre-Octave Ferroud's Bergère Captive (Captive Shepherd) for solo flute and the world premiere of Andrea Clearfield's Ha-Galgal (The Wheel), a prayerful work inspired by the sound of the shofar, for solo horn. Finally, violist Aloysia Friedmann joins the Montrose Trio for the elegant and exultant Piano Quartet No. 1 by Gabriel Fauré to close this evocative program.
