SARAH KIRKLAND SNIDER: “The Currents” for Piano
AVNER DORMAN: World Premiere for Trumpet, Violin, Viola, Cello, Bass and Piano
SCHUBERT: Piano Quintet in A major, “Trout”
Avner Dorman's piece was commissioned by Pacific Symphony and is sponsored by Dot & Rick Nelson.
Inspired by the poetry of Nathaniel Bellows, Snider’s “The Currents” puts Shaham’s complete skills as a formidable pianist on display; it’s expressive, poetic and lyrical, telling a story of both innocence and coping with an unpredictable world. Next, experience a world premiere from Israeli composer Avner Dorman who draws on cultural and historical influences in his music. And finally, Schubert’s atypical chamber instrumentation for his “Trout” quintet; a work featuring beloved melodies from his song "Die Forelle" ("The Trout").
