Music: Sun Mar 1

This morning’s solo piano selections feature the work of Catalan composer Federico Mompou. His six Charmes alude to the healing, spiritual properties of music. The French-language titles allude to putting suffering to sleep, penetrating, souls, inspiring love, healing, evoking the image of the past, and calling forth joy. The Cancion y danza No. 5 begins with austere religiosity, which gives way to dance-like, communal joy. Elsewhere the CUUC Choir is on hand with expressions of hope and empathy. Read on for programming details.
