Trainspotting

  • Friends Meeting House 5 Longfellow Park Cambridge, MA 02138 (map)

All aboard for Sarasa's special tour of train-inspired music in our March concert set, including works by 19th-century train enthusiast Antonin Dvorák and Steve Reich's very personal account of train travel in the 20th century.  Biber's wonderfully exuberant violin sonata No. 3 from the 1660s, composed some 100 years before trains were even invented, anticipates those very sounds we imagine when a locomotive chugs along its route.  Not to be missed! A multi-media presentation.

Program for March 25, 2017 at the Friends Meeting House in Cambridge, MA will include:

Works by Piccinini, Biber, Reich and Antonín Dvorák

Alessandro Piccinini: Toccata XIII for solo theorbo
Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber Sonata No. 3 for violin and basso continuo
Steve Reich Different Trains for string quartet and electric tape
Antonín Dvorák  American String Quartet, No. 12 in F major, Op. 96

Miranda Fulleylove & Jesse Irons, violins; Jason Fisher, viola; Jennifer Morsches, cello; Simon Martyn-Ellis, theorbo; Gregorio León, videographer
