About This Program

Approximate length 2:00

This program features rarely-heard English, French and American gems of the chamber music repertoire spanning the centuries. The program opens with a Serenade for Flute and Harp by American composer Vincent Persichetti, consisting of eight highly-characterized movements that evoke styles of other times. André Caplet’s Conte fantastique was inspired by Edgar Allen Poe’s The Masque of the Red Death, and evokes the mood and action of the story in ingenious ways. Walton’s String Quartet in A Minor closes the program in traditional English fashion.


SPCO concerts are made possible by audience contributions.
