Philip Dukes & Friends II: Tales of the Unexpected

In a first for the SMF chamber music series, we travel to the magnificent surroundings of the Metal Building at Trustees’ Garden, for a program of fantasy and drama. In a semi-staged, partly programmatic concert, Impressionist France meets the mysterious world of Edgar Allan Poe, with a reading of Poe’s macabre tale “The Masque of the Red Death,” and in response, we hear André Caplet’s brilliant setting of the same story to music. To add to the Impressionistic element there is Claude Debussy’s exquisite Trio for flute, viola, and harp, and the program concludes with Maurice Ravel’s beguiling Piano Trio, perhaps one the finest trios ever written.
