Music: Sun Jan 31


The polar drives to assimilate and to differentiate find expression in this morning’s musical selections. From the communal folk dances echoed in Mompou’s intimate Canciones y danzas in this morning’s Gathering Music, to the diverse polyphonic threads of a Bach fugue, and the symphonic richness of Mozart’s keyboard writing, some of the solo piano music evokes communal integration. On the other hand, the figure of the lone shepherd leading a flock sets the dichotomy into sharp relief in Debussy’s wistful “The Little Shepherd” and Ernesto Halffter’s saucy “Danza de la pastora.” Finally, the band is the ultimate musical representation of community, and no one wanted to be in the band as much as….Lucy from the 1950’s TV classic. Stay tuned for more details and read on for full program listings.
