All aboard for Sarasa’s special tour of train-inspired music in our March concert set, including works by 19th-century train enthusiast Antonin Dvorák and Steve Reich’s very personal account of train travel in the 20th century. Biber’s wonderfully exuberant violin sonata No. 3 from the 1660s, composed some 100 years before trains were even invented, anticipates those very sounds we imagine when a locomotive chugs along its route.
Works by Biber, Reich and Antonín Dvorák:
Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber – Sonata No. 3 for violin and basso continuo
Steve Reich – Different Trains for string quartet and electric tape
Antonín Dvorák – American String Quartet, No. 12 in F major, Op. 96
Musicians: Miranda Fulleylove & Jesse Irons, violins; Jason Fisher, viola; Jennifer Morsches, cello; Simon Martyn-Ellis, theorbo
Sunday, March 26, 2017, 7:00pm
This performance will be held in the First Parish Sanctuary.
