DIRECTOR'S NOTES

Forgotten Gems showcases an early Piano Trio in D minor by Fanny Mendelssohn-Hensel, sister of Felix Mendelssohn, and Florence Price’s String Quartet No. 2 in A minor from 1935, exploring elements of the spiritual and folk song.

Eric Ewazen’s work for mixed ensemble, flute, clarinet, trumpet, violin, and cello, is inspired by three Buddhist mandalas or cosmograms. 

Adolphe Blanc, was a French composer of chamber music from the mid-nineteenth century. His Septet from 1860 in E major Op. 40, for clarinet, bassoon, horn, and string quartet, is steeped in the Romantic style, combining melody and virtuosity for this unique combination.
