LANCASTER: LEGENDS AND FOLKLORE: The Red Violin

  • ST. JOHN’S EPISCOPAL CHURCH 321 West Chestnut Street Lancaster, PA, 17603 United States (map)

This listing is for the RED VIOLIN concert in Lancaster, PA. For the concert in Guilford, CT, please search on the calendar for the concert on November 22nd!

Comprised of works by Corigliano, Caplet, Crumb, and Saint-Saëns, this program will delve deep into the world of fantasy and story-telling. We will begin with Corigliano’s Red Violin Caprices – taken from the soundtrack of Hollywood’s famed film “The Red Violin.” We will then travel through the American and French folk and fantasy worlds of Crumb’s Solo Cello Sonata and Saint-Saëns’s “Fantasie,” and finally delve into Edgar Allen Poe’s dark and terrifying literary world of the “Mask of the Red Death.”

PMHU’s 2019-2020 concert season, entitled “Legends and Folklore,” is comprised entirely of works which explore the folk, fantasy, and musical story-telling traditions found in various cultures and periods throughout history. Each of the four concerts in our public concert series will tell a unique story – whether that of refugees using music to cling to their homeland and search for their voice and place in new and foreign lands; or the dark fantasy-world of Edgar Allen Poe’s literature being brought to life through music; or the traditions of gypsy and fiddle music throughout the centuries. All programs will be performed by many of today’s leading folk and chamber musicians from around the globe. This will be a season you will not want to miss!
