Program
Dido & Aeneas Suite
Henry Purcell (1659–1695)
Duet for Two Violins and String Orchestra
Steve Reich (b. 1936)
Maynie Bradley & Anna Luebke, violin
Apollon Musagète

……
Bridging 300 years, the delicate seventeenth-century music from Henry Purcell’s Dido & Aeneas, the exciting Duet by Steve Reich, and the elegant Apollon Musagète by Igor Stravinsky share many compositional elements.
Regardless of only utilizing string instruments, each piece creates a strikingly particular soundscape. With Apollon, a composition that pays homage to the classical era with its music and to the ancient Greeks with its plot, we wish to celebrate Igor Stravinsky’s 50th anniversary of his passing.
