Maurice Ravel — Sonatine
Elliott Carter — Figment IV
Jeffrey Mumford — wending
Tyson Davis — Tableau XII for solo viola
Three inspiring young performers—violist Jordan Bak, flutist Adam Sadberry, and harpist Ashley Jackson—make their Phillips debut with a thought-provoking program that mixes 20th-century chamber works with new music, including the world premiere of a new work for viola and harp by Washington, DC, composer, Jeffrey Mumford.
The sonic combination of flute, viola, and harp was first explored by Claude Debussy, who was drawn to new possibilities of timbre and instrumental color. The trio performs Debussy's Sonata for Flute, Viola, and Harp, in conversation with an arrangement of Maurice Ravel's Sonatine. Bak takes the stage for three solo viola works: Elliot Carter's pointillistic Figment IV (2007), Mumford's rhapsodic wending (2001), and a work by young composer Tyson Davis, Tableaux XII (2021).
