Houston New Arts Movement presents Soul-Stirring Strings
The Houston New Arts Movement will host an evening of the lyrical and resonant sound of the cello. “Soul-Stirring Strings,” the second concert in their “Journeys and Dreams” season, will feature some of the greatest works written for cello and piano. This special encore performance will include vocal works by Bachelet, Amy Beach, and Strauss, brought to life by their vocalist, Leah Brashear. Each vocal piece will be paired with a different string instrument and piano.
The concert features French composer, Gabriel Faure’s Cello Sonata No. 1, Op. 109, a dramatic, passionate, and lyrical work. This performance will also feature other works by master composers Brahms, and Beethoven’s A Major Cello Sonata.
