SUNDAY, AUGUST 4, 2019 · 3 PM
The Baker-Baum Concert Hall
An evocation of voices past, this exquisite evening of music features Debussy’s ravishing and quietly revolutionary Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun, George Crumb’s mystical Vox Balaenae (Voice of the Whale) for three masked players, Ravel’s magical songs for soprano and chamber ensemble, and one of Rachmaninoff’s most beloved works steeped in the sounds of his childhood, raised in the Russian Orthodox Church.
This concert is dedicated to Jere Robins.
