An excellent introduction to contemporary poetry, this charming and audience-friendly program includes poetry and translations with strong musical connotations, paired with an eclectic mix of musical styles, from Bach to the present for String Trio. The program includes Mozart transcriptions of Bach three part inventions; Mozart Divertimento; Dohnanyi Serenade; improvisations of Chris Turner; poetry of Rumi, Mary Oliver, Lisel Mueller, Billy Collins, RW Thomas and May Sarton.
