Explore the colors and sounds of individual instruments in the hands of our new Festival faculty members. Demarre McGill performs one of the most popular works in the flute repertoire: Francis Poulenc’s exquisite Sonata for Flute and Piano. When British-American composer Rebecca Clarke’s viola sonata was performed in 1919, the bias against women in classical music was such that critics refused to believe she had written such a “powerful work” herself. Clarke’s “one little whiff of success,” as she called it, has since become a mainstay of the repertoire; Teng Li will perform the groundbreaking piece. Robert DeMaine, Ani Kavafian, and Jeffrey Kahane join forces in Schumann’s First Piano Trio. From its expressive opening to its soul-searching slow movement and radiant finale, the trio brings to life every aspect of Schumann’s complex personality.
