Virtuosity combines with innate theatricality in this program, featuring vivid storytelling and great American composers of song, celebrated through the unique prism of soprano, clarinet and piano. Repertoire includes the West Coast premiere of "Gentle Creatures", by rising young New York composer Molly Joyce, "I never saw another Butterfly", by Thomas Oboe Lee, a powerful piece composed to texts penned by children who perished at the Teresienstadt Concentration Camp, and the striking clarinet solo "Wings", by Joan Tower. Also featured on the program is music by the incomparable Leonard Bernstein and a nod to the great American Songbook in a selection of witty arrangements of Gershwin standards.
