We’re looking at the sky and beyond on Now Is the Time, Saturday, August 13th at 9 pm, Dark Clouds Bring Waters is William McClelland’s setting of John Bunyan: “Dark clouds bring waters, when the bright bring none.” Elena Ruehr follows that with lovely music for flute and piano, Of Water and Clouds.
from Elena Ruehr: Of Water and Clouds
The first of two substantial works for piano is Judith Lang Zaimont’s Jupiter’s Moons, and the composer Beata Moon (we know, it’s a stretch, but a good excuse to hear her always-appealing music!) ends the show with her Piano Sonata from 2006. In between the two piano works is a trio for clarinet, bassoon, and piano, written by Justin Rubin honoring the birth of a little boy, Night Song for Noa.
