William Grant Still Vignettes
Annette Kruisbrink Five Dances for Guitar and Viola
Johannes Brahms String Sextet No. 2 in G Major Op. 3
Be prepared for an afternoon of delicate and playful spirit that ends in intense passion. William Grant Still’s “Vingnettes” newly adapted for oboe, bassoon and guitar by Eli Schille Hudson will open the conversation and Annette Kruisbrink’s “Five Dances” will mark the first half, all in preparation for Johannes Brahm’s passionate ” String Sextet No. 2″. In this piece, Johannes includes a reference to Agathe von Siebold, a woman who he was betrothed for 6 years, but never married. Could this be the one that got away?
