Closing out the season, and the Emerging Voices series focusing on women composers past and present, is a remarkable string quartet by Guggenheim Fellowship recipient Gabriela Lena Frank. Also on the program is Frank’s Danza de los Saqsampillos for two marimbas. Soprano Sharon Mabry returns to the ALIAS stage to sing three songs by Lili Boulanger. Rounding out the program is a rarely heard work for two cellos by French composer Philippe Hersant, and the well-loved Introduction and Allegro by Maurice Ravel.
Here is the program, including sample audio clips of the composers’ works:
Philippe Hersant / 11 Caprices for two cellos
Gabriela Lena Frank / Danza de los Saqsampillos for two marimbas
Maurice Ravel / Introduction and Allegro for harp, flute, clarinet, and string quartet
Lili Boulanger / Attente, Le Retour, Reflets, for soprano and piano
Gabriela Lena Frank / Quijotadas for string quartet
