The program will feature Sextuor (Sextet) by French Les Six composer, Francis Poulenc (1899-1963). The work caused a stir when premiered in 1933, earning praise from liberal critics and scorn from traditionalists. We will premier a due for Violin and Viola by Stanley Walden, known for his work on the avant-garde theatrical review, Oh! Calcutta! Other works will include Acadia for Oboe, Viola, and Piano by Ensemble’s own Shirley Hoffman Warren, Fanmi Imèn for Flute and Piano (2018) by African-American flutist/composer, Valerie Coleman, Duet for Flute and Viola by Malcolm Arnold (1921-2006), and “The Water Sprites” for Flute, Voice and Piano by American composer, Amy Beach (1867-1944).
