Join Sirius Chamber Ensemble for a musical journey through the Americas. We will feature two compositions by US composer Robert Muczynski, Time Pieces for clarinet and piano and Fantasy Trio for clarinet, cello and piano. Kenneth Fuchs’ music for Quiet in the Land, an Idyll for flute, clarinet, cor anglais, viola and cello, suggests the open spaces of North America. A stark contrast follows with Argentinian composer Astor Piazolla with his virtuosic Le Grand Tango for cello and piano. To conclude is the joyous Belle Epoque in Sud America for wind quintet by Brazilian composer Julio Medaglia.
