Simply Inspired: Schubert, Dvorak and Shaw

  • St. Margaret's Episcopal Church, Sanctuary 1601 Pleasant Plains Road Annapolis, MD 21409 USA (map)

Sometimes, we listen to a piece of music and we ask, what made the composer decide to write this? What kind of inspiration did it take to come up with something so beautiful?  As it turns out, sometimes it's the simplest things can get the creative juices flowing.   Come hear our opening concert and learn how bird song, a trout flashing through a stream, and even biting into an orange inspired this program of refreshing, summery music.

Caroline Shaw: Valencia for string quartet

Antonin Dvorak: "American" Quartet op. 96, arranged for wind quintet

Franz Schubert: Quintet for Piano and Strings D.667 "Trout"
