Uncorked #1: Façade

January 27, 2019, 2:00 pm

Grab a drink and mingle with our talented Boise Phil Chamber Players at the Uncorked Series!

Join us for an incredible kick-off to our uncorked chamber series with Guilliame Connesson’s Double Quatuor, a colorful blend of romantic, lush melodies and harmonies, and modern dance rhythms. Composed for a combined string quartet and woodwind quartet, Double Quatuor is a pulsating opener. William Walton wrote the music of Façade to accompany the narration of twenty-one Edith Sitwell poems. Melissa Bagwell provides the virtuosic narration to Sitwell’s extraordinary and haunting text. Accompanying her through hornpipes, tangos, waltzes, yodeling songs, and other exciting adventures is a septet comprised of flute, clarinet, alto saxophone, trumpet, percussion and two cellos.
