BFM Concert: Sheffield Chamber Players

March 24 @ 3:00 pm

The Brookhaven Friends of Music is delighted to once again welcome Sheffield Chamber Players—Sasha Callahan and Megumi Stohs Lewis, violins; Alexander Vavilov, viola; and Leo Eguchi, cello—with their program Greetings and Salutations at 3:00 pm in the Performance Hall and streaming. A musical dialogue among three unmistakable voices, the concert opens with Caroline Shaw’s Blueprint, whose title is drawn from a Japanese wood-block art typically using precious “Prussian Blue” ink. Shaw describes this piece, and chamber music itself, as a “conversation without words”. Here, she converses with Diné-Navajo composer Juantio Becenti and 20th century great Benjamin Britten. For Sheffield’s third commission, Becenti has written a quartet in which different musical styles will talk with one another; and Britten’s final major work, his 3rd Quartet, is his simultaneous greeting and farewell to the beauties and mysteries of life.
