FreshTradition: Hope to Hope

Friday, July 7, 7:30PM, Wave Street Studios 

Ginger Kroft, clarinet; soprano; violin; viola; cello 


CLARKE, Prelude and Allegro for viola and clarinet

SPOHR, Sechs Deutsche Lieder, “Sehnsucht” and “Wach auf”, Op. 103

GOLIJOV, Tenebrae (Mvt I)

DEBUSSY, Quartet for Strings in G minor, Opus 10 (II & IV)


This program features works by Rebecca Clarke, Louis Spohr, Osvaldo Golijov, and Claude Debussy. “Quiet and searching notes open the program, in a way to ‘wash away’ regular life, almost a meditation. Abrupt shift to brisk motion … fleeting thoughts and feelings, how one stitches together these fragments of hope. Take a journey through ‘hidden gem’ repertoire with a program inspired by Samuel Johnson’s thought: The natural flights of the human mind are not from pleasure to pleasure, but from hope to hope.” – Ginger Kroft
