Festival Program II:

Fragments

Saturday, August 10 at 7:30 PM

Hannaford Hall, 88 Bedford Street, Portland

Tonight’s program explores how “fragments” of insight combine to create musical inspiration. Mahler's unfinished Piano Quartet pairs with the otherworldly homage it inspired. Nature’s soaring heights and darkest depths mirror the scope of human emotion in Schubert’s beloved lied, and illustrate Tchaikovsky’s Tuscan picture postcard with vibrant virtuosity.
