Program


DVOŘÁK

Serenade for Strings in E Major, Op. 22

Dvořák is said to have written the Serenade in just 12 days, from 3–14 May. The piece was premiered in Prague on 10 December 1876 by Adolf Čech and the combined orchestras of the Czech and German theatres.


Mendelssohn

String Symphony No. 5 in B-flat, MWV N5

Mendelssohn wrote twelve string symphonies between 1821 and 1823, when he was between 12 and 14 years old.

Kodály

Duo for Violin & Cello, Op. 7
 

Zoltán Kodály's Duo for violin and cello, Op. 7, was composed at the start of World War I (1914), but not played in public until a full decade later when it was heard in Salzburg as part of the 1924 ISCM Festival.  In the century since its birth it has become a cornerstone in the scant repertoire for violin and cello duo -- a miniature ensemble that has been heartily neglected by composers.

Grill

Meditations for String Orchestra

Stanley Grill's music is melodic, modal, contrapuntal, characterized by extended, interweaving lines. His musical influences span the centuries, and include Machaut, Josquin, Palestrina, Monteverdi, Lassus, Britten, Ives, Vaughn Williams and Shostakovich. Two main themes permeate many of the pieces - music intended to influence the minds and hearts of those who hear it in such a way as to encourage thoughts about the possibility of world peace - and music composed in an attempt to translate something about the nature of the physical world.
