Our last program, A STITCH IN TIME, features music that’s all about rhythm. Black British composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor is represented with his evocative and jazzy Ballade for cello and piano. Dutch composer Dick Kattenburg was murdered in Auschwitz at the age of 24. The last work he wrote before his death, the Quartet for flute, violin, cello, and piano, shows the astonishing creativity of this young composer. Kenji Bunch’s Concerto for piano trio and percussion is a short work full of intricate rhythms, and Black American composer Kevin Day’s Ecstatic Samba is a thrilling dance for flute, cello, and piano. The program concludes with Leonard Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story arranged for two pianos and percussion.
