Draw On, Sweet Night

sunset

As the days shorten, we celebrate the onset of autumn. Renaissance madrigals mingle with selections from Randall Thompson’s Frostiana. Lili Boulanger’s haunting Soir sur la plaine accompanies Eric Whitacre’s delicate Sleep. The vigor of György Ligeti and light heart of Henk Badings recall the joyful aspects of nightfall. Brahms and Barber round out the program.
