Despair and mourning, hope and healing; these have been recurring themes over the past 15 months. Mischa Zupko composed his Anechoic Rhapsody to reflect our collective journey. With this work in mind, we chose piano trios by Rachmaninoff and Shostakovich that convey the internal dichotomy between the turmoil and serenity we have been facing.
Across the program, there is an underlying exploration on the meaning of “silence”, both literally and figuratively. We close this program with Air and Simple Gifts, a reminder of the possibilities to come.
