Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival – “Colorful Explorations”

2429 Montauk Highway
Bridgehampton, New York 11932

6:30 PM
At the center of this program is a new work commissioned from Academy, Grammy, and Golden Globe winning composer Howard Shore. Perhaps most well known for his gargantuan scores for Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings, Shore turns to a more intimate combination of instruments for a new work for mezzo, flute, cello, piano, harp, and percussion. Surrounding this colorful new work are pieces of vibrancy, effervescence, lightness and deep feeling. Featured are two sides of French composer Gabriel Fauré – his intricate, emotionally rich Piano Quartet in C minor and three tiny, delicate “Morceau’s.” A joyful work by Fauré’s young contemporary and countryman Maurice Tournier and a captivating song cycle by Spaniard Manuel de Falla round out the program.
