SPCO at Turf Club

Special Performance
March 15, 2018


This program celebrates remarkable composers whose works featured here trace their strength through different channels. At the heart of the program 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. In addition to works by the Boulangers, this program also features pieces by Dame Gillian Whitehead, who wrote No Stars, Not Even Clouds about her close friend’s struggle with cancer; and Amy Beach, whose accomplishments were a beacon in the suffrage movement.
