Music: Sun Apr 19

Composers and the vows they take: from the Freemasons Mozart and Haydn, to the Hieronymite Antonio Soler and the Abbé Liszt, this morning’s solo piano music flowed from the pens of adherents to religious orders and societies. Mompou’s Música callada (Slient Music) takes its title from the teachings of the 16th-century Spanish Carmelite friar San Juan de la Cruz, who wrote of “Silent music; sonorous solitude.” Elsewhere, the CUUC Choir is on hand with statements of faith and idealism from diverse cultures.
