About this event

Bach Dancing & Dynamite Society’s 23rd summer festival, OFF THE CUFF, is in celebration of the thrill of spontaneity. Join us for our nine programs this summer. Dress to the nines but keep your shirt on!

Manuel de Falla Suite populaire espagnole for cello and piano - sponsors: Linda & Keith Clifford
Ned Rorem Bright Music for flute, two violins, cello, and piano
Dora Pejacevic Piano Quartet - sponsors: Michael Bridgeman & Jack Holzhueter
George Gershwin Rhapsody in Blue for piano four hands - sponsors: Norma & Elliott Sober
(Program subject to change)

BLUE VELVET features music that oozes charm. Our program opens with one of the great American cellists, Bion Tsang, performing Manuel de Falla’s Suite populaire espagnole. It continues with the dramatic and unjustly neglected Piano Quartet in D minor of Croatian composer Dora Pejacevic. American composer Ned Rorem, who died last month at the age of 99, is represented by his spectacular work for flute, piano, and strings Bright Music. And to conclude the program, what could be more suave than George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue? We perform it in an arrangement for piano four-hands made by Gershwin’s friend and colleague Henry Levine.
