About This Concert
Holding the Hands of the Tempest-Tost: Music of Schubert and Shaw
Our program opens with the perennial favorite: Schubert's "Trout" Quintet featuring pianist Audrey Andrist, artistic directors Amy Barston and Kevin Kumar, festival founder Ed Klorman, and Canandaigua native double bassist Kieran Hanlon.
Rochester’s prized vocal ensemble First Inversion joins us for "To the Hands,” a masterpiece for chorus and small chamber ensemble by Caroline Shaw, the youngest ever recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Music; this is a rare work of genius that richly explores musical language of the past and present, the complexities of immigration, and words of both the Bible and the Statue of Liberty. Our musicians are joined by RPO Assistant Principal Violinist Shannon Nance.
