William Walton's Façade with reciters Stephanie Blythe & Raymond Menard and Seven Principal Met Musicians
Parlance Chamber Concerts' season will culminate on April 27 with the return of the great Stephanie Blythe. She will collaborate with co-reciter Raymond Menard in William Walton's gem of Jazz Age musical humor, Façade Entertainments. Inspired by the sophisticated, often subversive poetry of Edith Sitwell, Façade brought overnight success to Walton, as well as a reputation as the enfant terrible of modern English music. Conductor/Artistic Director Michael Parloff will lead a stellar ensemble of principal players from the Met Orchestra.

Also included on the program will be a group of 1920s instrumental solos, including Erwin Schulhoff's flapper-tinged Hot Sonata featuring Met saxophonist Lino Gomez; Victor Herbert's touching 'Songs' for cello and piano with the Met's lyrical principal cellist Jerry Grossman; Darius Milhaud's bluesy flute Sonatine showcasing Met principal flutist Stefán Ragnar Höskuldsson; and a selection of witty xylophone rags performed by Met principal percussionist Gregory Zuber. All of these works will be accompanied by pianist Warren Jones.

Victor Herbert - Three Pieces for cello and piano
