Festival Program I:
Thursday, August 8 at 7:30 PM
Hannaford Hall, 88 Bedford Street, Portland
This opening program extends a warm welcome to the 2019 season with “threads” of Czech folk song and colorful music traditions from Peru. Dohnányi’s glorious Piano Quintet, admired by Brahms (who declared "I could not have written it better myself") lends a sumptuously romantic texture to this thrilling musical tapestry.
