Copland House UNDERSCORED: Piano Trio by John Musto

Please join the internationally-acclaimed Music from Copland House ensemble for an exhilarating tour of award-winning composer John Musto’s kinetic musical world. Hailed by the American Record Guide for music that "overflows with dancing energy, nifty musical turns, and wistful lyricism that erupts at unpredictable intervals unto playful outbursts of balletic merriment,” Musto's work ranges across a vibrant urban landscape animated by a brash energy, languid, nocturnal poetry, and stylish, sophisticated allure. His fast-paced, eventful Piano Trio of 1998 shuttles between two extremes of character, mood, and texture. Long-lined, fervent melodies break out into dazzling, virtuoso riffs, while expressionist soliloquies may unexpectedly become sultry cabaret melodies. The musical action is non-stop, the delights constant. This virtual program includes a brief introductory conversation between the composer and Copland House Artistic and Executive Director Michael Boriskin, as well as a post-performance, live Q&A between them and viewers.

Music from Copland House artists: Curtis Macomber, violin; Thomas Kraines, cello; and Michael Boriskin, piano.
