Music: Sun Jun 12

In recognition of the theme of evolving moral standards, Sunday morning’s solo piano selections feature works which were widely misunderstood by their composers’ contemporaries. Frederic Chopin’s Polonaise-Fantaisie perplexed nineteenth-century musicians because of its unconsciously evolving form and shattering of simple genre classifications. The music of Claude Debussy included in the Offertory also met with initial resistance from more reactionary factions in the French conservatory culture, who failed to grasped the composer’s revolutionary use of dissonance to evoke sensation and impression.

The CUUC Choir is also on hand with two contrasting selections; the first, a celebration of the art of music, the second a farewell gesture at the choir’s last appearance of the 2015-16 church year.
