Join the critically acclaimed Chameleon Arts Ensemble of Boston for a chamber music program of musical portraits that offer glimpses into worlds of memory and invention, fairy tales and fantasy. Robert Schumann's "Fairy Tales" for clarinet, viola, and piano are quintessential Romantic character pieces and Laura Schwendinger's High Wire Act for flute, string trio and piano is inspired by the wire circus figures of the great American sculptor Alexander Calder. Canadian composer Gary Kulesha's Six Bagatelles for woodwind quintet takes its impetus from a satirical "reference" book, The Devil's Dictionary by the turn of the century satirist and journalist Ambrose Bierce. Rounding out the program are two works inspired by and dedicated to teachers and mentors: Francis Poulenc's charming and light-hearted Trio for oboe, bassoon and piano, and the lush, passionate d minor Piano Trio, Op. 32 of the seldom heard Russian romantic composer Anton Arensky.
