The Society takes a break from the core chamber music repertoire and presents a concert celebrating classical composers and writers whose important voices cross barriers of equality, religion and free speech.
The concert includes two works by pioneering female composers the elegant Piano Trio in D Minor by Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel (Felix Mendelssohns sister) and Portraits of Langston, a tour-de-force trio by Valerie Coleman inspired by poems by Langston Hughes. The concert also includes music by Turkish pianist and composer Fazil Say, internationally renowned for both his music and his politics on free speech, and early 20th century Czech composer Erwin Schulhoff.
The concert is proceeded by a talk about Fanny Mendelssohn by Dr. Jeffrey Riehl, professor at the University of Richmond.
