The program also includes works by Franz Schubert, Gabriel Fauré, and Cary Ratcliff, among others.
Rita George Simmons and Paula Bobb are both members of Hochstein’s faculty, in flute and piano, respectively. Mezzo-soprano Allyn Van Dusen is a versatile performer who has appeared as a soloist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, RPO, and Rochester Oratorio Society, among others.
The voice-flute-piano trio Gossamer Edge was formed in 2012 to explore the vibrant repertory for this trio combination, as well as solo literature and duos combining the instruments in different ways. These sonic possibilities make for intriguing and varied programs in which the performers point to meaningful interconnections, soul journeys, and playful perspectives on life, expressed through the sheer beauty of the music and poetic texts.
The concert takes place in the Hochstein Performance Hall and is broadcast live on WXXI Classical 91.5/ 90.3 FM, hosted by Classical 91.5’s Mona Seghatoleslami.
