Songs With and Without Words

SprungRhythm.jpg
Inscape's CD Sprung Rhythm, including Joseph Hallman's Three Poems of Jessica Hornik

Singing can be vocal or instrumental on Now Is the Time, Saturday, June 7th at 9 pm at wrti.org and WRTI-HD2. A tribute to a family, carved in cemetery marble, is the choral Notturno in Weiss (Nocturne in White) by Robert Moran. Joseph Hallman's Three Poems of Jessica Hornik uses voice with an expanded chamber ensemble, while Anthony Iannaccone selects a solo piano for his Song without Words.

An Uruguayan legend or Leyenda comes from Sergio Cervetti for voice and orchestra, and from her ten-year-old daughter's poem about a Cape Cod berry-picking excursion, Elena Ruehr creates the all-instrumental Blackberries.
PROGRAM:?
Robert Moran: Notturno in Weiss?
Joseph Hallman: Three Poems of Jessica Hornik
?Anthony Iannaccone: Song without Words?
