Cantus The Four Loves
Sat., Oct. 10, 2015 — 7:30 p.m.
Love has been the inspiration for artistic expression since the dawn of time. The idea is so complex that the Greeks broke it down into four different kinds: romantic, familial, friendly and unconditional love. Cantus regards our greatest and most fragile gift in The Four Loves. With premieres by David Lang, Ysaye Barnwell (“Wanting Memories”), Roger Treece and Joseph Gregorio as well as music by Beethoven, Poulenc and Grieg, The Four Loves looks at this unquantifiable emotion from all sides.

Sweeping strings and stirring lyricism abound on this program featuring Tchaikovsky’s graceful yet impassioned Serenade for Strings and Prokofiev’s exquisitely shaped Five Melodies, newly arranged for chamber orchestra by violinist and composer Michi Wiancko. At the center of this program is Haydn’s Symphony No. 85, one of the composer’s “Paris” symphonies, which earned the nickname La Reine (The Queen) due to its popularity with the infamous Marie Antoinette.
