Santa Cruz Chamber Players 4/3
April 3 @ 3:00 pm
Santa Cruz Chamber Players presents “The Hero’s Journey” at Christ Lutheran Church. Music by Beethoven, Prokofiev, Stravinsky, Lili Boulanger, Ben Dorfan performed by Ben Dorfan, Concert Director and Piano; Jeff Gallagher, Clarinet and Narration; Shannon Delaney D’Antonio, Violin and Kristin Garbeff, Cello.
In this concert, we explore the theme of overcoming challenging circumstances.
Beethoven’s Op. 11 Trio is a product of the composer’s return to health after a severe illness. Prokofiev’s iconic Op. 119 Cello Sonata signifies a remarkable victory over Soviet-era censors. Stravinsky’s compact masterpiece the Suite from L’Histoire du Soldat, came to be when the 1918 flu pandemic made it impossible to perform the original theater version. Completed in the final year of her life, Lili Boulanger’s energetic D’un matin de printemps is seemingly an act of defiance towards her declining health. Initially programmed for SCCP’s 2019-2020 season, Ben Dorfan’s Clarinet Sonata will be a world premiere!
