“Different Voices” pays homage to a forgotten masterpiece, a world premiere at Off the Hook Arts, and the string quartet From My Life by the Czech composer Smetana—who like Beethoven suffered from deafness, but only late in life. The underappreciated Harold Shapero was hailed by Stravinsky as an American master composer, and his Variations in C Minor are a powerful tribute to Beethoven. Michael Brown performs his own Piano Concerto in a world premiere of its intimate chamber music version, and the program concludes with Smetana’s deeply moving From My Life quartet.
Shapero: Variations in C Minor
Brown: Concerto for Piano and Strings (World Premiere)
Smetana: String Quartet No. 1 in E Minor, From My Life
Gourmet reception included.
