Flirting with Melodies On Demand
4 Mar 2021
Our latest virtual concert, Flirting with Melodies, is available now on demand. On the program: Samuel COLERIDGE-TAYLOR Four Novelettes, op. 52 Julie SPENCER Tree Song (World Premiere of new orchestral version) Josef SUK Serenade in E-flat major, op. 6 Nothing from the mind of Music Director Laura Jackson is ever predictable – flirting with new ways to bring back the musicians of the Reno Phil to the stage of the Pioneer Center, this virtual concert will feature two marimba (Eric Middleton & Carol Colwell) performing a world premiere performance of Julie Spencer’s Tree Song. The music pours out a love of nature, inspired by the songs of birds, wind in the trees, and mountain echoes. The program will also feature two incredibly romantic, lush and melodic works. As the diminutive title suggests, Coleridge-Taylor’s Novelettes form a set of modest yet graceful character pieces, whose dance-like qualities are accentuated through the addition of triangle and tambourine.
