Where in Houston: Rienzi (1406 Kirby Dirve, Houston, TX 77019)
Program: In Flanders’ Fields: Maurice Ravel’s Piano Trio in A Minor
Maurice Ravel's Trio for Piano, Violin, and Cello has been praised as one of the greatest achievements in the development of the piano trio. With its incredible peaks of triumph and profound lows of despair, the trio contains some of Ravel's most heartfelt writing. Composed at the brink of WWI, this work captures the anxieties of the men and women of Europe as they faced apocalyptic atrocities. Ravel would himself enlist in the French Army as a driver where he saw the horrors of the war with his own eyes.
Moores Music in the City presents this masterpiece in a new light by combining it with poetry by John McCrae, Wilfred Owen, Edward Thomas, and Katharine Tynan, film and music created by J. E. Hernández, and the Romance and Pastorale for violin and piano by Ralph Vaughan Williams in an exciting multimedia experience. Audiences will get a glimpse into the lives and experiences of the artists who lived during WWI through poetry and film while enjoying new compositions by J. E. Hernández. This concert connects the old with the new with a generous touch of "Moores" along the way!
