Copland House Ensemble: Ghosts, Visions and Spirits
After opening ArtsFest 2022, the celebrated Copland House Ensemble returns to New Rochelle with another vibrant American musical journey.
This musical “séance” summons ethereal, bygone spirits and influences in three remarkable works referencing the past to celebrate friends, forebears, and music itself. The program includes a rare performance of one of Leonard Bernstein’s earliest works (written just before we meet the iconic composer in the blockbuster new film Maestro); Pulitzer Prize-winner John Harbison imagining the Viennese master Franz Schubert’s journey from this world into the next; and Emmy-winner John Musto’s tribute to a close colleague (evoking Puccini, Bach, jazz, and other musical ghosts).
Featured artists are violinists Siwoo Kim and Kobi Malkin, violist Tanner Menees, cellist Alexis Pia Gerlach, and pianist Michael Boriskin.
