Jupiter’s Moons on Now Is the Time

Jupiter’s moon Callisto";

We're looking at the sky and beyond on Now Is the Time, Saturday, August 13th at 9 pm. Dark Clouds Bring Waters is William McClelland’s setting of John Bunyan: “Dark clouds bring waters, when the bright bring none.” Elena Ruehr follows that with lovely music for flute and piano, Of Water and Clouds.
The first of two substantial works for piano is Judith Lang Zaimont’s Jupiter’s Moons, and the composer Beata Moon (we know, it's a stretch, but a good excuse to hear her always-appealing music!) ends the show with her Piano Sonata from 2006. In between the two piano works is a trio for clarinet, bassoon, and piano, written by Justin Rubin honoring the birth of a little boy, Night Song for Noa.

PROGRAM:
William McClelland: Dark Clouds Bring Waters
Elena Ruehr: Of Water and Clouds
Judith Lang Zaimont: Jupiter’s Moons
Justin Rubin: Night Song for Noa
