Spring Musicaleconcert 07 May, 2017 - 3:00 PM
[BBLA at Bohemian National Hall]
The tradition of Sunday afternoon musicales in the late 19th century continues as the spirited ArtsAhimsa ensemble with violinist Laura Jean Goldberg returns for its seventh season with chamber works and song from the repertoire of Antonin Dvorak, his contemporaries, and students. Featuring outstanding seasoned musicians along with talented young students, this year’s program includes Dvorak’s String Sextet led by violinist Laura Bossert, a guitar transcription of Brahms’ Intermezzo Opus 117 with guitarist Tali Roth, composer Eric Ewazen’s Flute Sonata arranged for violin and piano, plus a Dvorak gem played by a young trio from The Juilliard School.
Soprano soloist Dr. Marti Newland will perform art songs and a concert spiritual by composer and baritone Harry T. Burleigh, who as a student at the National Conservatory of Music of America in the 1890s, assisted and influenced Dvorak during his American residency.
