Sounds from Bion to Beyond

Bion Cantorum with R. Paul Urbanik, violin  and Ann Alton, cello

Nov. 17, 2017 at 7:00 PM

First Presbyterian Church, 2230 Hariet Street, Port Charlotte, FL

This concert features works inspired by the night and the cosmos, including Gjeilo’s  “Northern Lights”,  Wagner’s “Song to the Evening Star” for cello and piano, Barber’s “Sure on this Shining Night”,  and Stroope’s  beautiful “O, Notte” for choir, strings, and piano based on a poem by Michaelangelo

We will also play Piazzolla’s “The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires” arranged for Violin, Cello, and Piano. The movement Verano Porteno evokes a sultry summer night with the rasping of katydids, tango music from the dance halls, and the suggestion of steamy liasons in Buenos Aires’ ubiquitous telos (love-hotels).
