The Lost Chord: August 29 - Nostalgia Isn't What It Used to Be

The end of summer can be a time of reminiscence, sentiment, and undefined yearning.  Join four American composers who drew inspiration in looking back on halcyon days.  We’ll hear William Schuman’s “American Festival Overture,” permeated by a boyhood call-to-play, Haskell Small’s piano suite “Visions of Childhood,” Charles Ives’ autobiographical Violin Sonata No. 4, “Children’s Day at the Camp Meeting,” and George Crumb’s reflection on hymns and folk songs of his formative years, “American Songbook III:  The River of Life.”  The past informs the present, this Sunday at 10 pm.
