Chamber Music Series: Strong Sisters

March 17-18, 2018


At the heart of this program celebrating remarkable composers are works by Nadia and Lili Boulanger, the most famous sisters in classical music. The sisters drew upon each other for strength and inspiration, but after Lili’s tragic death at the age of 24, Nadia stopped composing and focused on teaching, becoming the most influential composition teacher of the 20th century. Each the works on this program traces its strength through different channels: Jessie Montgomery through spirituals, Dame Gillian Whitehead through a close friend struggling with cancer, and Joan Tower through her connection with the performers for whom she wrote her music.
