About the Event
Join us virtually on Sunday, May 17 starting at 4PM for "Reflections in Time," our next Constellations Virtual Concert! We're so excited to be presenting both the oldest and newest works yet on a Constellations concert - including a world premiere of Juilliard faculty Jonathan Dawe's Before the Hour of Terce and a special performance of our very own Daniel Pesca's In Solitude, works for solo cello written commissioned in response to the ongoing pandemic. Jonathan's piece is a brand new work - you can't hear it anywhere else (at least for now), so don't miss it!
Registration through this page is appreciated (but not required) so we can know who's watching! As usual, the performance will be posted on our home page (www.constellationsmusic.org) as well as on our Facebook page, and available online for 72 hours to enjoy at your convenience. Access to the video is free and we encourage you to continue to spread the word and share with family and friends. We're looking into ways to make the concert experience more interactive through cyberspace and ways of reaching audiences who may be struggling the most during the pandemic over the summer - stay tuned for more details!
For our artist roster this week, we're extending a warm welcome to cellist Paul Dwyer from Chicago and harpsichordist Nadja Lesaulnier all the way from Basel, Switzerland!
The program will feature the following works:
Jean-Henri d'Anglebert: Pièces de clavecin
Suite No. 2 in G Minor
IV. Seconde Courante
J.S. Bach: The Well-Tempered Clavier, Book II
Prelude and Fugue in E Minor, BWV 855
Jonathan Dawe: Before the Hour of Terce
Daniel Pesca: In Solitude
Joseph dall'Abaco: Caprice No. 1 in C Minor
Composer and Programming Committee member Daniel Pesca will host a discussion panel with all the performers and composers to discuss their insights into the program and the inspirations behind the featured works.
