Music of Jean-Michel Damase, Alberto Ginastera, Mendelssohn, Mozart, and Astor Piazzola
Flute and strings open the program with Mozart’s lovely Flute Quartet in G major, K 285a. Mendelssohn’s Trio for Flute, Cello and Piano concludes the first half. Pianist Jessie Wenchieh Lo opens the second half with Alberto Ginastera’s Danzas Argentinas Op. 2. Strings and flute then perform 15 Minutes for Flute, Violin, Viola and Cello by French composer Jean-Michel Damase (1928-2013). Damase was a native of Bordeaux who won many prizes during his rise through the French Conservatory system from age 5; he began to compose at age 9. The program concludes with Astor Piazzola’s Cuatro Estanciones for Piano Trio. Piazzola was a tango composer and bandoneón player whose music has become part of the standard classical repertoire.
