The Lost Chord: May 15 - The Virgin Spring
No, not the Bergman film, in which Max von Sydow exacts terrible vengeance on those who… well, nevermind. Suffice it to say, the show’s not about that. Rather, it’s a program of vernal expressions from Sweden, including Gunnar de Frumerie’s “Pastoral Suite” and two works by Wilhelm Peterson-Berger: Book III from “Flowers of Frösö” and the “Earina Suite.” According to the composer, “Earina” conjures a world of “cult deeds and magic rites… belonging to some undefined natural religion.” Nobody does spring quite like the Swedes. Enjoy an hour of well-seasoned music, this Sunday at 10 pm.
