Handel’s Water Music greets a turbulent world with ripples of pure joy, still living up to its origins as a floating peace offering after a royal conflict. Music can mask a challenging situation, or it can reveal a deeper understanding, like the new work by Shuying Li inspired by the many moods of postpartum motherhood. Shostakovich, navigating dangerous Soviet politics, learned to cloak his startling originality with enchanting layers of humor and humility, as heard in his multi-faceted First Cello Concerto. In his most charming ballet, Pulcinella, Stravinsky brought masked comedians to life by embellishing Baroque source material with added dimensions of wit and sparkle.

 

Program:
HANDEL: Water Music: Suite No. 2 in D Major, HWV 349
SHOSTAKOVICH: Cello Concerto No. 1 in E-flat Major, Op. 107
