Music: Sun Apr 7

April’s monthly theme of Renewal finds expression in this morning’s solo piano selections, which include a wealth of inspirations from the natural world and Unitarian composer Edvard Grieg’s celebration of regeneration in the Offertory. Francis Poulenc’s lively reworking of Renaissance-era courtly dances in a more modern, dissonant idiom represents a specifically musical sort of renewal. Read on for programming details.
