JACARANDA OUT & ABOUT
The Wende Museum of the Cold War will host Songs of Stones, Jacaranda’s concert of Polish music Friday November 2. Grazyna Bacewicz is gaining ground as Poland’s foremost woman composer. Her defiantly ebullient 1953 Piano Sonata No. 2 will open the concert. Mieczyslaw Weinberg – friend of Shostakovich and a leading voice of mid-century Soviet Jewry – will be represented by his haunting Violin Sonata No. 5. Songs of Stones concludes with Henrik Górecki’s sublime, Quartet No. 2 “Quasi Una Fantasia,” written just after the fall of the Berlin Wall. The moods range from electrifying brilliance, to pathos, passionate lyricism, and finally to glowing rapture – without an intermission.
