A felicitous blend of contemporary styles and a variety of vocal and instrumental combinations. With a rarely-heard piece by Leonard Bernstein (Piano Trio, for piano violin and cello); and works by Hugo Weisgall (selections from The Golden Peacock, a delicious set of Yiddish songs for soprano); Ben Yarmonlinsky (Menasche Songs, for baritone, set to texts by the late Samuel Menashe, who received the first “Neglected Master” award); Jody Rockmayer (Marsyas for harp and oboe, based on the Greek myth of Marsyas finding the aulos (oboe) created by Athena); and the award-winning composer Mark Zuckerman (Menagerie for soprano, flute and piano, based on texts by the French poet Robert Desnos), this promises to be a stimulating and enjoyable program.
