Left Coast’s own Tom Nugent is featured in a program that includes an Arthur Bliss quintet. Nugent describes this idiosyncratic piece, “the quintet is lush, with French impressionistic and English pastoral sonorities that combine as a counter point to 20th century outburst. It would seem that Bliss in this 1927 work is entering the 20th century kicking and screaming but always coming back to his tonal and stylistic roots.” Kurt Rohde is making a new arrangement of Manuel De Falla’s 1926 Suite Populaire Espagnole especially for this program. We revisit Anthony Porter’s Five, Six, Heaven, a work commissioned by the LCCE Intersection Workshop.
